Eric Robinson


Eric Allen Robinson, one of the owners of JANDS died on November 11, 2015. He was 67.

Together with his partners, Eric Robinson grew JANDS from a small lighting rental business, in the early 1970s, to become a diverse group of companies that now provide rental, installation, manufacturing and sales of professional audio and lighting equipment.

Eric was the longtime CEO of Jands Production Services and more recently JPJ Audio but over the last 45 years he also acted as Production Manager for some of the most innovative and memorable entertainment events held in Australia.

At the Helpmann Awards his exceptional service to the Australian live performance industry was recognized when he received the 2015 Sue Nattrass Award.

Eric will be greatly missed by everyone at JANDS, and JPJ Audio and by his many friends around the world.

Our heartfelt condolences to Eric’s family and to all who knew him, worked with him and valued the many and varied contributions he made to the entertainment industry.

A private commemoration will be held in Port Douglas. In lieu of flowers, Eric’s family have asked that a donation be sent to support cancer research. Further details will be posted here once finalised.
