/ About Us

CPL first opened 20 years ago as CPS a small presentation company based in a small unit not far from Birmingham. Since then the company has grown rapidly and has become one of the UK’s leading providers of technical solutions, production equipment and specialist project management services for all types of live shows, events and presentations spanning multiple sectors – corporate, commercial, leisure and entertainment..

Company Directors Matthew and Scott took over the company in the heady millennial year of  2000 and worked tirelessly building CPL into the market leader it is today. Their collaboration galvanised a lively mix of ideas, innovation, imagination and passion which transformed CPL into a pioneering and leading international live event visual solutions provider and has seen the Company forge lasting relationships with production companies, exhibition organisers, AV service providers and venues throughout the UK.

The company’s work encompasses the rental of audio, lighting, AV, video, rigging and staging equipment through to complete design services, the creation of  bespoke media and content and the provision of experienced crews to make it rock!

Our central location close to major motorway networks, and international airports means we are able to provide state of the art Video, Audio and Lighting technologies Nationally and Internationally.


There are now four areas to our business AV Equipment Hire, Technical Services, Equipment Sales and Venue Services, each of these departments is staffed by full time permanent staff who between them combine a wealth of knowledge and experience in their field and various industry disciplines to ensure the highest levels of service and support to our clients.

For that reason we are justifiably proud of our team of dedicated, creative and enthusiastic Project Managers, Technicians and Support Staff. Crucially they have the ability to offer advice and provide solutions. Our team are flexible, highly skilled and totally committed, they are our biggest asset and we continue to invest in their future development both within the company and also the rapidly changing industry that is AV.
