Merino acquires Pixipixel

Merino is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Pixpixel.  Pixipixel is a camera and lighting equipment rental company to the Film, Television, Commercials and Photographic industries, founded in 2002.  Merino has partnered with existing management to grow the business.

Pixipixel has a well invested fleet served by two specialist divisions: Camera located in Hoxton and Lighting located in Tottenham.  Pixipixel is one of the only independent UK rental houses that can offer both camera and lighting hire.

Steve Knight, Managing Director of Pixipixel, commented: “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on our business, and we had to swiftly adjust to the ‘new normal’ to adapt to these turbulent conditions. As productions resume filming, we are really excited about the future of our industry and are thrilled to welcome Merino as a strategic partner to support the next chapter of our development.”

Ben Reavley of Merino commented: “We are delighted to support Pixipixel in the next stage of their growth ambitions. We were impressed with Steve and Toby’s plans for the business and are excited to invest in the thriving UK film sector.”
