Feature Systems is the quintessential New York Grip and Electric resource. Founded in 1972 by NY DP Bob Bailin, Feature Systems embodies everything you would expect from a New York based facility. New York has long had a reputation for NOT suffering fools gladly. This means you either do what you say you are going to do, or go do it someplace else. Bob’s original idea was to provide producers with the best service and equipment on the East Coast. As a DP, Bob understood the importance of having good lighting and grip equipment delivered to the set on time and in working condition. For over 40 years Feature Systems has built it’s reputation one job at a time. Bob has managed to put together a knowledgeable and customer service oriented team. Long time General Manager Jay Karasick, Operations Manager Billy Kirchner and Purchasing / Technical Manager Russell Sagerman have more then a century of experience between them. They make sure that Feature Systems has the latest gear, and that it is working when you need it to, no magic tricks here, just hard work and attention to detail.
With over 30 trucks, generators and support vehicles, Feature Systems can provide equipment and service on a 24/7 . Their main facility is now in a 40,000 square foot warehouse in Carlstadt NJ, and they also operate equipment rental facilities in Moonachie and Long Island City.
Feature Systems has the latest in lighting, grip, distribution, generators and dolly equipment. Their vehicle fleet consists of specially designed 5-Ton and 10-Ton equipment trucks, some fitted with shelves and darkrooms as well as truck mounted generators ranging from 500 amp to 1500 amp and some with d/c capability.
No short cut guide to top New York providers would be complete without Feature Systems. We at productionhotspot have known Bob and his team for more than 20 years, we are happy to include them on our site. Pretty much everyone knows and has worked with Feature Systems at some point. If you have not, what are you waiting for? We say check them out.
