Panalux Announces New London Headquarters

News Image
Panalux is opening a new, purpose-built London headquarters.

With approximately 60,000 square feet of warehouse, 12,000 square feet of office space, and 40,000 square feet of mezzanine, the new site will bring Panalux London's full operations — which had previously been spread across two separate London locations — together under one roof.

"With this new facility, we're able to have our complete London operations on site at a single location, which will streamline communications and maximise efficiencies between departments and with our customers," said Panalux Managing Director Mark Furssedonn. "We conducted an extensive search to find this location because we wanted to ensure it ticked all the boxes for our operations and our customers. The new space is well positioned within the West London production corridor, and beyond housing our operations today, it gives us room to grow in the future."

The new site also underscores Panalux’s focus on sustainable practices, with features including electric-vehicle charging points and a roof-mounted photovoltaic array that powers the site’s backbone infrastructure. At the completion of construction, the building earned an energy performance certificate (EPC) rating of A+, with net zero carbon emissions.

The building's layout has been designed to streamline workflows between all areas, including rental inventory, engineering, mechanical workshop, R&D, assembly, textile manufacturing, repairs, testing and calibration, and technical support. Additionally, a new demonstration studio will provide a dedicated space for customers to test equipment. The facility also houses a fully integrated vehicle maintenance unit for on-site service of Panalux London's transportation and power-generation fleet. For crews loading in and out, the new building features a significantly expanded loading yard, now with 10 dock levellers and three level load doors. The yard offers ample parking for Panalux London's fleet, employees and visitors.

Panalux London's new home will be fully operational in the coming months and is conveniently located in the West London production corridor at Pasadena Close, Pump Lane, Hayes, UB3 3NQ. The facility is in close proximity to the M4, M25 and M40 motorways, the Elizabeth train line and Heathrow airport, as well as London-area studios and other Panavision group services.

Recent projects supported by Panalux London include the features All of Us Strangers, Napoleon and Red, White & Royal Blue, and the series The Crown, The Burning Girls and The Great. The company's rental inventory includes proprietary solutions such as the Panalux Sonara and Panalux Allegra LED ranges and an extensive catalogue of third-party products. Panalux runs its full fleet of vehicles and generators using HVO fuel instead of fossil diesel, and the company’s eco-conscious offerings also include the innovative Panalux Power i-Series rechargeable battery arrays and h-Series hybrid generators.
