Presteigne Broadcast Hire has taken on an extra 21,000 square feet of warehouse, service, and operations space after a recent multimillion pound investment in new cameras, lenses, tripods and newly developed flyaway and de-rig tech.

Presteigne CEO Mike Ransome said, “We recently added more than £2 million in new broadcast technology on top of the £2.4 million we’ve already invested this year to meet demand. Broadcasters and production companies are under pressure, largely driven by consumer expectation, to improve standards of quality and production.

“We had a great 2017, and have a very busy year on tap for 2018, so to ensure our ability to meet demand we needed much more space to enable us to process and service our inventory to – often very quickly – provide technology that ranges from the latest 4K, ENG and cameras, telephoto lenses, lights and tripods to everything in between.”

Presteigne houses an inventory from Sony, Canon, Blackmagic, Vinten, Leader, and others and recently added another 33 Canon CJ12 lenses, 64 new HD/4K Sony 450 camcorders, plus Vitec tripods, lights, and more.
