Hello fellow artists, friends and members of our great family, the Circus World !
We are of all countries, ethnics, age gender and beliefs, but we all share something in common: The circus is our passion !
When you buy an apparatus from us,
you contribute to a growing community. Why?
CircusConcepts is more then
just a company. CircusConcepts is a vision by Hugo Noel, a part of the bigger picture.
Before I go further, in light of the latest word development( as of May 2020 ), the change in the industry and the COVID issue, we realise now how important a company like us is. There is a few other companies producing circus props which appreared on the market lately. This has made business for us a bit more difficult, but still we believe our mission stands out even more, as we produce quality and reliability.
In the COVID times, we have suddently noticed a lot of companies which could not offer their products anymore, Out of Stock for undefinite time.. for products that are supposedly made in America. This comes to show that these statements where often untrue. One thing that always showed it too was the price of those items. As a manufacturer, we can easy see what is not made here. When props are sold for the price you pay on ly the material for it here, without workmanship, it is obvious to us. Metals made in asia are well known to have much lower quality and often critical defects in them. We would not recommend them to anybody. The sailing and parachuting industry had very large recalls and constant problem with lower quality steel for their products in the last years, and this also affected the circus industry with the chinese fake Crosby Shackles.
With this new market, we are now not the cheapest anymore even tough we produce in series, but the difference in price is what you pay for you safety and well beeing. On top, we instigated our Best Price Guarantee as for anything we sell, we want you to have the best price for the safest props.
With every prop you buy, you contribute in helping
us help others. How?
CirusConcepts / Hugo Noel has a mission. CircusConcepts is Hugo Noel's vision on how to make better, safer, long lasting and apparatuses for
artists by improving every production from your feedback. We LOVE to hear from you, the good and the bad, so we can improve!
How you contribute:
If you are
reading this you are making the first step.
If you've even bought something from
us, or discussed with one of us about the challenges of your disciplines,
you've already contributed.
We used to have a community
website (Cirkipedia.org) but unfortunately, due to Spamming problems we have
resigned this project.
How we can do it better :
Does better and cheaper
seem like a utopia to you? Well it is, but, the idea behind all this is that
if we centralize the building of apparatuses, we can improve them. Why?
Unlike a small local builder we make many of the same apparatuses at a time. Every time we make one more, we
learn from the last one. For every year we are in business, we learn from our
customers experience with our equipment. This way we stop the current situation
of people copying what they have seen, thus copying mistakes or creating
new ones, a situation that is too frequent and that keeps progress at bay.
Also the more apparatuses we build, the cheaper it becomes. If it does not
become cheaper, it's because it becomes better. We are not a chain like
Wall-Mart, we don't go for the lowest price. We are CircusConcepts, and we
go for long lasting quality, being what we believe is the base of sustainable
development and of responsible resource management.
To create accessible and great quality products while making circus a social enhancement. Unlike other forms of arts, circus
does not require any specific skills. Over the years, circus has evolved from
being a place to witness the unusual, to a society. Why?
one of us is unique and in the circus, any talent is accepted. There are no
limits, no rules, and no boundaries. That's why I love Circus,
because that's how I fell into circus.
I'm from a small village with very little resources,
at first I found it pretty difficult to find information about Circus equipment. I wish a company like mine had existed then. A company who can ship anything you need from
the circus even to remote areas like Tanzania.
Being the person that I am, I created CircusConcepts to meet the needs of the Artists and the Circus World.
''My passion is the Circus,
and I believe in my passion. My dream is to give a chance to everyone to live
their passion as well as make it easier for everyone to do so. ''
