Expansion for Andy Dixon Facilities following investment
Bridgend-headquartered Andy Dixon Facilities, which has been involved on productions including Stella and Wolf Hall, has taken on additional staff and opened a base at Pinewood Studios Wales as part of an expansion.
The company, supported by teh Welsh Government's Business Wales service, secured a £25,000 Welsh Government SME Capital Grant which has been used to fund the £400,000 purchase of new equipment, including trailers for location filming.
It has brought in ten new staff, taking its team to 70, and opened an office at Pinewood Studios Wales in Cardiff.
The expansion has led to an increase in turnover of 35 per cent.
Director Laurence Wells said: "At one time, the TV and film industries were very London-centric, but with organisations such as BBC Wales becoming a centre of excellence for drama, the opening of Pinewood Studios Wales and major productions like Da Vinci's Demons being shot here, it is clear that the creative industries are booming in Wales.
"This has undoubtedly helped us to grow our business."
Andy Dixon Facilities has recently worked on productions including Wolf Hall, Stella, Da Vinci's Demons and Everest, a film due for release later this year starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightley.
