On invests £600,000 in new plant and technical production equipment

19th June 2015 in Company News

We are constantly seeking to update our fleet of rental equipment, to ensure we offer our clients the highest levels of service and are currently investing £340,000 on the latest kit.

We are imminently due delivery of the latest Clay Paky Mythos advanced hybrid lighting unit, which is being shipped from Vienna, where it was used on last month’s Eurovision Song Contest.

We have also ordered a large quantity of Chauvet Rogue R2 wash lights as well as bolstering our current stock of LED battery and batten uplighters, together with generic lighting fixtures.

In addition, we have made a significant investment in video and audio equipment – some of the highlights include: Samsung 95” LED Panel Display, Panasonic PT-EZ580EJ HD Projectors, Analog Way Pulse 2, L’Acoustics 8XT’s, Yamaha QL1 and Yamaha QL5 Digital Audio Desks.

Our new headquarters will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure our finishes are to the highest standards. An investment of more than £250,000 is currently being invested to fit out our new premises on the Trent Lane Industrial Estate in Castle Donington.

This latest phase of our expansion programme has been made possible thanks to the recent funding award from the Derby Enterprise Growth Fund (DEGF), which takes the form of a £182,000 loan and a £100,000 grant.

Commenting on our investment in new plant and equipment, managing director Guy Eaton, said:

“The DEGF funding has enabled us to complete the fit-out of our new 15,000 ft2 headquarters and further develop our new in-house fabrication department and dedicated roadshow division.

“The funding has also enabled us to create eight new posts across all levels of the business, which will enable us to cope with the increased demand from our extensive client base, which includes agencies and end-users.
