Growth in video news attracts film makers to Harrow

One of the UK’s fastest growing exponents of TV, advertising and promotional films has relocated their business to Harrow as part of a major cost saving exercise.

Film-makers, Feering Productions, has moved into the Avanta business centre on College Road after previously being based in Hertfordshire for five years. “There’s massive growth in the number of businesses, both large and small, that are now using videos and film to promote their business and whilst people are spending money on this they are also looking for better value for money,” comments Richard Goldbourne, Feering’s commercial manager.

“So it was important for us to find a location that not only would provide great transportation links and an easy commute for our staff, but, most importantly provide us with a cost-effective solution to reducing our own costs. This is particularly important in the current financial climate.

“We looked at a number of occupancy options in North London, but the serviced office solution offered by Avanta enabled us to cut our overheads, thus improving our bottom line dramatically. We were also attracted to the flexibility of terms provided which enabled us to move in quickly and without any hassles, yet retain the agility to upsize, downsize or even relocate to meet the demands of our business. Harrow is a great location and the superb quality of the Avanta centre reflect most positively on the professional image we convey to clients and the ability to use the centre’s meeting rooms for client presentations is a key benefit.

“We are already witnessing tremendous growth in the number of companies using videos and films to promote their business as more and more people consume news via online video. In fact, I predict that within the next five years it will become the norm to see videos on websites. We are in a growth business and whilst businesses are still spending money on films and videos they are also seeking better value for money and by moving into the Avanta centre we believe that we have also achieved the best value for money on quality serviced office space.”
“Feering Productions is typical of the businesses that continue to expand and prosper, despite the recession, and the flexible and cost-effective nature of serviced office space is increasingly becoming the ideal solution for go-ahead businesses in the area,” comments Fay Jessup, Avanta’s centre manager. “This is the perfect location for small and start-up businesses and the benefits and support we provide are proving ideal for those businesses that are finding it increasingly harder to make long term plans during the current downturn.”
