Bigger Manchester base for PROCAM
PROCAM, the UK's largest broadcast equipment hire company, has expanded its space in Openshaw.
The specialist equipment firm, which has been at Langtree-owned City Works Business Park since 2005, has renewed its lease and taken an additional 3,719 sq ft unit on a 10-year contract.
The move follows expansion last Setember when PROCAM acquired rival Hammerhead TV. It has taken over offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and allowed the expansion in Manchester.
Head of operations at PROCAM in Manchester, Jonathan Bolton, said the company was taking an ever-increasing chunk of the market share and looking at further expansion.
“We are also pro-actively looking at avenues which may help us expand our offering further. As we now have offices in Scotland and London, the Manchester units serve as an ideal central base allowing us to have national coverage and serve our customers efficiently.”
Procam, a preferred supplier to BSkyB and an approved supplier for BBC and ITV, has the largest stock of HD cameras in the UK.
At the point of the acquisition it employed around 70 staff and had doubled revenue over the previous four years to £6.5m.
