Cardiff-based event production provider Cleartech Live has strengthened operations with an expanded warehouse, new recruits and a new site in London, to bring it closer to clients in the capital.


Cleartech, which provides conference, video production, interactive and live event solutions has opened a new 400 sqm facility in Cardiff, treble the size of the company’s previous premises, for event equipment storage and the new in-house editing and graphic design suite.


MD Ben Voisey said: “We have been looking for some time to find a suitable location that can accommodate our immediate requirements while affording us the flexibility to realise our growth plans without the need for further relocation down the line.


“Having our core function based in Cardiff gives us a greater flexibility than what we would have elsewhere. It enables us to be more competitive and crucially gives us access to a highly skilled pool of technical talent which is unrivalled elsewhere in the UK. But we also need to be where many of our customers are too.


“Opening a new site in London is a natural progression for the business. It will not only bring us closer to many of our partners and clients but it also serves as a stronger foothold into the wider European event marketplace.”


The company employs 13 staff and has plans to increase its headcount further and double its turnover within the next 12-18 months as it continues to capture more business from major UK companies and national associations based in and around the London region.


Production director Dave Hibbert added: “Clients are increasingly making decisions based on how flexible, creative and adaptable their AV partners are. They want to work with a team who genuinely cares about what they want to achieve from their event and has the capacity to manage all the technical requirements of a live event, rather than just one or two elements of it such as sound or projection.”
