Who We Are
EC Creative Services has been designing and building bespoke sets – for TV, film, theatre and live events – since 1990.
We’re not the only set building company in the UK but we are the industry leaders in offering a one-stop shop. We’ve got a highly-trained, multi-skilled and motivated workforce who can provide expertise in metalwork, joinery, cabinet making, electrics, scenery painting, upholstery, LED lighting and mechanical engineering. This means we can get things done quickly, professionally and on budget.
Based in Oldham, Greater Manchester the company was originally founded by Eric Crowther (no prizes for guessing the inspiration behind the company name). These days Ben Crowther (Eric’s son) oversees the day-to-day running of the company although Eric does still take a keen interest in the business (usually from his boat in Conwy).
As a long-running family business we also pride ourselves on our friendliness, personal service and flexibility. Over the years we’ve seen and experienced most things and are extremely good at finding original solutions to even the most complicated design, build or installation challenge.
We are approved contractors to major television and production companies including the BBC, ITV, Endemol and Channel 4.
We’ve got an excellent track record in delivering innovative, quality, creative answers to problems large and small. You don’t just have to take our word for it though, here’s what some of our clients have got to say below.
