Hireworks is one of the leading European rental companies and has been providing location Post Production and Broadcast equipment and Central London cutting rooms since 2007

Europe’s leading dry hire rental company based in the heart of London


Hireworks was launched in 2007 and soon became a major force in editing equipment rental after securing the contract to supply the latest technology and associated technical support to the 6th Harry Potter movie. A year later Hireworks acquired London Editing Machines, (LEM Digital), a very established rental company specialising in feature films. This allowed us to expand rapidly to offer dry-hire cutting rooms. In 2012 we provided the hired editing systems to the latest in the series of James Bond movies, Skyfall, and multiple Avid systems with shared storage for use by the BBC for their coverage of the London Olympics. Around this time Hireworks started to offer a support based service working on several ‘live’ productions integrating specialized recording technology such as EVS. Shows including ‘First Dates’ for transmission on Channel 4 and ‘Keep it in the Family’ for TX on ITV, were soon followed by live events such as the Wimbledon tennis, athletics and the BBC Proms.

In 2017, Hireworks expanded its cutting room capability to 60 rooms and in 2023 to 150 rooms becoming one of the largest hire companies in the industry. We are proud to boast a client list of over 200 active clients, spread across many areas of the TV and Film industry, including, Production Companies, Broadcasters and Facility houses. We rely on a strong reputation for customer and technical support and the importance of our fast & efficient response to customer needs cannot be overestimated. Our reputation rests on the quality of our technical & operational support and this is fundamental in winning future business as well as maintaining existing business. We consider it vital that we share the same commitment to customer care in all aspects of our business for us to continue to grow and enhance our reputation.
