A leading UK supplier of film and TV location services and logistics is reporting a 18.4% surge in annual revenues to £10.2m.

In December 2022, Supply 2 Location Group opened a new base in Merseyside. It agreed a letting for a 4,000 sq ft premises in Knowsley. This was prompted by the growing demand for Merseyside as a location for TV and film makers.

Recent productions that Supply 2 Location has supported include The Batman, filmed in Liverpool city centre, and Outlander. Its Knowsley depot is stocked with essential and specialist equipment for immediate location deployment.

As well as the city region depot the business also operates in Lancashire, Yorkshire and The Lake District.

Chief executive James Williams led a management buyout out of the firm in June 2022. This week he said the growth in revenue “maintains our profile of sustained growth over the last four years”.

He added: “Over the past year, we have also made several strategic investments in our overall plan to complete our UK-wide network.

“In December, we opened our Northern depot in Knowsley, quickly followed by our second Scottish depot at Pioneer Studios and our seventh depot serving the Midlands.

“These new depots will continue to contribute to our growth by providing a highly effective, seamless, integrated hub and spoke network across the UK.

“As part of our strategy to reinvest in the latest equipment including environmentally friendly plant, Stage V generators and battery solutions, we have maintained our capital expenditure in line with the previous year at £1.5m.”

James also said the firm was currently in negotiations to establish its first international depot. He explained: “While at the feasibility stage, it is an exceptional opportunity and would represent a significant step forward in our business development plan.

“The industry as a whole, including supply chain infrastructure and technical operations, continues to be affected by the ongoing screenwriters’ and actors’ strikes in America.

“This will have a far-reaching financial impact around the globe, and we can only hope that it is quickly resolved.

“Our group’s exposure to this is mitigated by our broad UK customer base and our diversification into infrastructure support and maintenance including generator refurbishment for major UK blue-chip organisations, which continues to expand weekly.”
