Kit rental firm expands into Belgium

It’s been an incredible few years for the international hire market, with new technology allowing businesses to promote themselves wider and further than ever before. Seeing many startups entering exciting growth periods, we at Anything for Hire couldn’t be prouder to be part of such an amazing, diverse industry. This week, it was announced that kit hire firm, ES Broadcast, have branched out into Belgium, signalling confidence in the future of production equipment rental.

Adding another office to their portfolio, this will be the brand’s fifth spot, complementing to their already-established branches in Madrid, Munich, Manchester and its London HQ in Watford.

Charles Alexis, ES Broadcasts’ European Sales Director, will be at the helm of this project. His time will now be spent building their presence in the country whilst managing the Munich office simultaneously.

Promising a “full catalogue” of HD and 4K broadcast equipment to its Belgium customers, the brand is building on their stock on what seems like a daily basis.

New office, new hire services

In a recent statement, they announced that they had added the following to their live production equipment hire inventory:

  • 20 Canon CJ12
  • 20 CJ20 4K ENG lenses
  • Grass Valley LDX 86N 4K camera channels
  • Sony HDC-4800 slow motion 4K camera channels
  • 100 Sony HDC-4300 4K camera channels
  • 11 Fujinon UA27
  • 22 Fujinon UA107 4K box lenses
  • 10 Canon UJ90 4K box lenses

Warren Taggart, Managing Director of ES Broadcast Hire, was thrilled to launch the new office. Talking on their expansion, he said:

“Ensuring we have a network of local offices run by industry experts is a key element of our ongoing strategy for growth. Establishing this service in Belgium helps us to meet the needs of customers in the Benelux countries and beyond, giving them much easier access to cutting-edge 4K technology” he continued.
