The new faces have joined FX from Dreamhire and include business development manager Martin Anscombe, Martin ‘Budgie’ Burden - who joins the rental bookings department - and Copyroom engineers Richard Whittaker and Brian Cunningham. FX Group chairman Roger Evan commented: "These appointments reflect our confidence in the future and our determination to deliver a high level of service to our customers. We are pleased to welcome staff from Dreamhire who bring considerable expertise with them."
FX has also marked the New Year by opening a dedicated Pro Tools transfer suite as part of an overall expansion of its Copyroom division. As a result, the company can now offer a full evening and weekend transfer service, so late afternoon jobs can be completed by 10.00am the following morning. In addition, the Copyroom now has a second, larger oven, which is used to bake tapes that are shedding oxide. This enables FX to handle more than double its previous baking capacity and deliver a much faster service.
Other recent new recruits at FX include Rianne Harrinauth, accounts and administration assistant, John Bolaji, technical services assistant, Paul Bobbins, despatch co-ordinator, Chris House, equipment quality controller, Robert Taylor, new business co-ordinator and Mark Scurr, trainee technician.
