Richmond Film Services relocating after 30 years

Audio equipment hire company Richmond Film Services (RFS) is relocating to Shepperton Studios at the end of the week, having spent 30 years operating out of The Old School in Richmond, Surrey.

In order to facilitate its switch to ‘the heart of the film industry’ following the conclusion of the lease on its current premises, which is due to be redeveloped, RFS will temporarily close on Friday 15 January 2016 and reopen at the new address on Monday 18 January.

Richmond Sound Services started out as a family business run from the home of Nigel and Valerie Woodford with just one Nagra recorder available for hire, but soon began expanding once the pair expanded their remit to offer a range of broadcast-quality sound equipment to pro sound recordists.

Further growth saw the company move into The Old School in June 1986, where it has been supplying professional audio kit to the film and television industry ever since.

As of next Monday, RFS will be based at: Building 11, Shepperton Studios, Studios Road, Shepperton, TW17 0QD. The firm’s main contact number will continue to be +44 (0)20 8940 6077.
