Lighting tech ace ROTOLIGHT to trail blaze new products after £5m boost

The equity package will enable the business, whose equipment credits include blockbusters like Bond movie Skyfall, Star Trek and ITV hit show Dancing on Ice, to deliver 15 new products in the next five years and expand its workforce from 15 to 70. Renowned for innovative, multi-purpose solutions that save time, streamline the amount of lighting apparatus needed and easily create special effects, all products are designed, made and assembled in the UK. The firm, set up by industry outsiders and tech disrupters the Gammons family in 2009, now exports to 41 countries from its Pinewood base.

Customers range from top pros to inspired amateurs. It recently introduced a ‘Try Before You Buy’ scheme to increase accessibility and its prices sit in the affordable to mid-range bracket.

Rotolight chief executive Rod Aaron Gammons said: “We take a long-term approach and have product plans that will change the way photographers and filmmakers work with light.”

Praising the firm’s substantial patents portfolio, Richard Court, Octopus Investments development capital head, added: “As well as developing the product range, we will be capitalising on extensive international opportunities”.
