We've unveiled three great new videos which illustrate our growth and developing services since HPP began in 1991.
The videos now appear on our website and YouTube channel, and will also be used in our reception areas, trade showroom, meetings and furniture industry events. They include documentary footage shot at HPP, showing our staff and operations, and animation showing how our head office site and manufacturing base have grown over the years.
The videos have been produced by Vivid Photo Visual in Stockport, Greater Manchester. Vivid produced the very first HPP video seven years ago, which was very successful but fairly traditional in style. With the new videos, we wanted new content and a different feel for different purposes and audiences.
The first new video uses animation to show the expansion of our head office and manufacturing site over the years. It shows our manufacturing, warehousing and delivery facilities rising from the ground over time then turns into video footage shot from the air, looking down on our headquarters today.
The second new video is a longer corporate-style film giving a more detailed view of what we do. It shows different activities, services and departments across HPP with motion-graphic captions highlighting key points. These highlights include our investment in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, staff and internal capabilities; our consistently-high customer service, our high-precision engineering, the wide range of bespoke manufacturing services we offer and our advanced logistics.
The third new video, called "A Day In The Life Of HPP", is shorter and focuses on our staff across different departments and the variety of work each day. Footage includes our manufacturing and warehousing facilities, customer orders, sales and support staff, and our trade counter, showroom and delivery services.
All three videos feature elements of aerial footage looking down on HPP's headquarters in Oldham, the central Manchester skyline and one of our delivery wagons setting-off across the Pennine hills, illustrating the importance our regional roots along with our contemporary nation-wide operations.
We're really pleased with how the new videos look: we'll be using them in a variety of ways with suppliers, trade customers, visitors and staff, and for future recruitment. They form a significant element of our range of marketing and information material which we've developed over the years. This material includes quality website content with product, installation and trade customer ordering information, social media content, print and e-brochures for installers and retail showrooms, and furniture component and accessory display boards.
We'd love to know what you think about our new video content: you can leave a comment on the videos over on our YouTube channel.
