Full Production expands with investment in new HQ

Full Production has completed the move to a much larger premises, with significant new facilities.

Located in Ruscombe the new site offers an attractive new working environment for staff and clients alike, including an enhanced workshop, prep and testing areas, a meeting and training room, increased office space and a new, fully equipped Vis Suite.

The new premises represent a significant investment and follows a period of rapid expansion for the company since COVID-19. In addition to its extensive office and workshop spaces accommodating its full-time staff, the new site offers a welcoming ‘Green Room’ for visitors, plus a Vis Suite equipped with an MA Lighting grandMA3 system and Depence software.

Marc Thornton, Director of Live Events and Touring explained, “For the Vis Suite, we wanted a space that feels warm and homely. We want people to feel relaxed, to be able to escape to somewhere pleasant and peaceful. We’re in quite a rural location, with various very nice pubs and restaurants nearby offering accommodation. Part of the attraction for our clients is to escape for a few days, being able to fully concentrate on creativity.”

Founder Steve Richardson added “It was important to us not only for the Vis Suite to be a dedicated well-equipped room, but to have an ambience and to be a desirable destination.”

He has been pleasantly surprised by the company’s post-pandemic rate of growth. Of the move to new premises, he commented, “Happily, within our ten-year plan we have included a degree of future proofing, and have room available to play with. If we outgrow the space in its current configuration, we can double the size of the facility if we need to.”

In recent years, via clients including Treetop Golf and Pixel Artworks, Full Production has made contributions to a series of large-scale special events, installations and attractions, in the UK and overseas. The team will be using the new space to produce in-house all its custom solutions for shows and installations, continuing Full Production’s push towards self-sufficiency, with all its advantages in increased efficiency, consistency and reliability.

“We have the confidence to invest in the company and build for the future, in a sustainable way,” concluded Richardson. “It shows our firm belief that that the business has a solid foundation for years to come.”
