Autoscript moves in with The Camera Store

Autoscript is to move its headquarters into larger premises at Twickenham, West London, as a result of its expanding business.

February sees the company move out of its base in East London's Docklands area where it has been for the last 25 years. Autoscript will be co-located with The Camera Store (TCS), the UK camera mounting equipment hire firm and fellow Vitec Group brand.

"Not only had we outgrown our existing site but our new West London base offers greater access for customers and for our hire fleet to deploy rapidly around the capital," said Brian Larter, Worldwide Managing Director, Autoscript. "Housing Autoscript's hire division with TCS under one roof is great news for customers since they will have all the ease of arranging prompting solutions and camera equipment hire from a single location."

Tim Highmoor, Managing Director for TCS, said "We are looking forward to sharing offices with Autoscript. Working alongside their rental department, we will be able to link our transport operations in order to enhance our delivery service. There is also an environmental advantage by trying to combine our journeys into central London in particular. TCS will benefit from moving to a much larger unit where clients can drop off their equipment and we can deal with running repairs at our service bay. There will also be a designated area where a range of Vitec Group brand products will be demonstrated."

As well as increased office and warehouse space the new operation, includes full demonstration and meeting facilities.
