London, UK--Vertigo Rigging moved into its new, larger premises on Tuesday, April 9, accompanied by new web and email addresses. The complex, sited near the company's former base in southeast London, gives Vertigo significantly greater space to expand its in-house facilities to meet rising demand.

The need for more spacious and flexible premises was made urgent by the success of Vertigo's fabrication department, which has seen a large increase in demand for its services, in particular aluminum fabrication for set pieces, custom structures, roofs and platforms.

"The move gives us the capacity to develop specialist areas of the company, and space for growth," says managing director Becky Loughran. "We now have self-contained warehouse space, a dedicated fabrication department, and separate project management and design offices."

The new Vertigo Rigging HQ is located at Unit 10, Elizabeth Industrial Estate, Juno Way, London SE14 5RW. Phone (00 44 (0)208 694 6033) and fax (00 44 (0)208 694 6066) numbers remain unchanged. The new email address is and the website also has a new URL, at
