Significant expansion for UK-based rental firm


Presteigne Broadcast Hire has taken on 21,000 sq ft of additional warehouse, service and operations space.

It has expanded its floor space to enable more efficient stock-keeping, technology maintenance/service and kit turnaround, following a £4.4m+ investment this year on production technology including 33 x Canon CJ12 lenses, 64 x HD/4K Sony 450 camcorders, Vitec tripods, lights, and “a substantial range of additional broadcast technologies.”

Presteigne CEO Mike Ransome said, “Broadcasters and production companies are under pressure, largely driven by consumer expectation, to improve standards of quality and production. Our aim is that no one will ever be caught short in sourcing the technology they require for any project, and our expansion and continued investment are major steps in that direction.”
