Our Elstree Film Studios depot closed at the end of September with all services transferring to Cardington Studios, Bedford. We aimed to do this without increasing client costs.
There are regular deliveries in and around London at subsidised rates to ensure no cost impact to our clients. Where large consignments or urgent deliveries are required, we will seek to keep costs acceptably low.
The move from Elstree is the culmination of a 2 year program to consolidate and re-style the company. With both Alconbury and Elstree resources now combined at Cardington and following a major clearout of old stock earlier this year, the company is poised for a re-launch.
ELP has offered a diverse range of equipment and services in the past but the recent sale of 'non-core' equipment and subsequent re-investment in lighting and rigging, has re-focused and modernised our inventory.
Substantial investment in D8+ / Cat 'A' hoists, Kinesys control, 'soft-box', grid and gantry systems and a large stock of LED equipment, places ELP in the forefront of current rental technologies. The scale and range of LED Stage, Broadcast and Film luminares now in stock enables ELP to meet large scale and varied client requirements.
Our new 50,000 sq ft rental facility at Cardington provides a refreshed and remodelled business environment going forward.
All OB and Event projects will continue to operate from Manchester. 'ELP Broadcast & Events' will shortly be moving to 'The Space Studios' complex in Manchester from where we will offer an increased range of equipment and services.
'ELP Hire & Sales' activities will merge with those of 'ELP Special Projects' at Cardington to service wet and dry hire clients on site and elsewhere.
Accounts and Management operations will now centralise at Cardington.
