UK-based supplier of film location services and logistics support Supply 2 Location has opened a number of new locations as it grows its business.
The company works on projects from one-day commercial shoots to HETV shows and multi-million-pound blockbusters.
It has opened a new Birmingham depot to cover the West Midlands and the central belt, a Northern hub is in Merseyside and recently finalised negotiations on its second Scottish ‘yard’ within the Pioneer Film Studios complex.
The hubs give the company a “highly efficient integrated service capability” throughout the UK, said Supply 2 Location.
It also planning on launching a new division – S2L Productions Ltd – which provides a turn-key operation focussing on overseas’ inbound productions from development to distribution. “We have recently completed our first project for a major European Netflix production, for which S2L Productions provided location and initial production services,” said CEO James Williams.
“We are actively moving the group towards a greener and carbon neutral future and we are looking to further develop partnerships with environmentally and sustainably sound sector suppliers and organisations,” he added.
“One example of this activity is the development of a new battery power system in association with a major UK blue-chip, and we have recently signed a contract to handle the entire maintenance and repair work for a market-leading generator supplier as we prepare for a transition to biofuel and other alternatives. Investment in training, new technologies and product updates also continue to serve that goal.”
