History Hammerhead Television first opened its doors in 1988 to service the growing independent broadcast production hire market. Two years later, Hammerhead Scotland opened with offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow, followed by the first Manchester branch which came online in 1993.
Hammerhead quickly established itself as one of the premier new hire companies in the UK and became market leaders in the introduction of new digital technology to the hire market, in particular, Drama production.
In recent years both the London and Manchester branches have moved to new custom built premises with further development taking place in both Glasgow and Edinburgh branches.
