CLARK FILM SERVICES commenced building specialized
silenced generating sets for the film industry in 1979. The generators were silenced to the extent
that they could not be heard at all on the film set. They were also fitted with electronic
governing as frequency in film lighting equipment is critical. Only the best components were incorporated in
the manufacture. Stamford alternators
proved to be the most reliable and were backed up by excellent spares and
service from all Stamford agents. The
same applied to Cummins and Perkins engines and it was found with both these
suppliers that the stated continuous power ratings were accurate.
RALPH CLARK is the principal of CLARK FILM SERVICES and was responsible
for the design and manufacture of all generator sets produced from the start.
Ralph is a Marine Engineer and completed his training as an indentured
apprentice with the ‘BURNS PHILP’ shipping line which at the time serviced the Pacific Islands and New Guinea. During his employment
with ‘BURNS PHILP’ he had extensive experience with both ship’s generators and
general power generators.
