Full Production expands with investment in new HQ

UK – Full Production, the Berkshire-based specialist in the design and delivery of world-class entertainment technology solutions, has completed the move to a much larger premises, with significant new facilities. Located in Ruscombe, between Reading and Maidenhead, with fast access to the nearby M4 motorway and Heathrow Airport, the new site offers an attractive new working environment for staff and clients alike, including enhanced workshop, prep and testing areas, a meeting and training room, increased office space and a new, fully equipped Vis Suite.


Founded by Steve Richardson in 2010, Full Production offers complete technical resources to the entertainment production industry, from lighting, sound and rigging to staging and video. The company has also been focusing on adding facilities and capability to its in-house workshop, increasing its activity in advanced solutions R&D, custom manufacturing and prototyping to ensure the very highest levels of service.

The new premises represents a significant investment, and follows a period of rapid expansion for the company since Covid. 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 comfortable Vis Suite equipped with an MA Lighting grandMA3 system and Depence software.

Visualisation Suite

Marc Thornton, Director of Live Events and Touring explains, “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, allowing them to fully concentrate on creativity.”

Richardson adds “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.”

Scenic Views

Richardson has been pleasantly surprised by the company’s post-pandemic rate of growth. Of the move to new premises, he says, “Happily, within our ten-year plan we have included a degree of futureproofing, 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 valuable contributions to a series of large-scale special events, installations and attractions, in the UK and overseas. Having recently completed a landmark installation for Treetop Golf’s new attraction at the Metrocentre shopping centre in Gateshead, the company is now looking toward a number of exciting projects already in the pipeline. 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.

The "Green" Room

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