Broadcast equipment rental firm Pro Motion Hire has opened a new branch in Liverpool.
Based in the city’s Baltic Triangle district, Pro Motion Liverpool is the firm’s fourth office.
As well as its London headquarters, the company also has offices in Manchester and Brighton.
The Liverpool branch will provide kit and crewing services in addition to hosting training and industry events to showcase new production technology.
Pro Motion Manchester and Liverpool facilities director Jessica Lolliot said: “Liverpool has always been a hub of creativity and industry, and we’re so excited to open a dedicated facilities house here.
“We are looking forward to working with a host of new businesses along with our regular clients. We have been proud to support Tech North growth in Manchester and we’re looking forward to doing the same in Liverpool, whether it’s the wide range of innovative and exciting clients on our doorstep or clients from the south that venture up for different landscapes.”
The company’s Manchester branch opened in March 2015 at The Sharp Project. Pro Motion said it had doubled in size within 18 months and now employs four permanent staff.
Pro Motion managing director Duncan Martin added: “We are passionate about creating regional facilities houses that can support all aspects of our clients’ needs nationwide so opening in Liverpool will allow us to support productions from their doorstep.
“The creative sectors in the North of England are a huge growing industry and with so much exciting content being created in Liverpool, we are really looking forward to be a part of it.”
