Origin Technical Productions Ltd (OTP) is an Oxfordshire-based technical productions company serving the events industry both locally and UK wide. OTP supplies a range of covered stages, Layher staging and event structures, sound, lighting, video and power services, including generator hire and temporary power distribution. The company also offers extensive dry hire equipment listings across these categories and is probably the leading Oxfordshire hire stockist for LiteDeck staging, stage drapes, truss and rigging accessories.
Specialising in complete event technical production, OTP carries a large stock of production equipment in its warehouse enabling it to operate most jobs entirely within house with known and well-maintained kit; giving added reassurance to its clients that a supply of backup equipment is readily available if required.
In addition to strict compliance with legislative and CDM regulations, OTP is also fully aware of the production standards required to make events a success at every level and strives to apply the highest possible standards to all that it does; building a reputation on this basic but vital principle with industry peers who now sub-contract specialist aspects of other high-profile events to OTP.
In October 2011, OTP was chosen to supply all the main staging, presentation set and VIP platforms for the Royal Wootton Bassett renaming ceremony, an event broadcast live on the BBC and attended by HRH Princess Anne. In May 2012 OTP was chosen as the sole event supplier for Her Majesty the Queen’s Jubilee visit to Richmond Park; supplying sound, lighting and staging for multiple venues and performers including members of the Royal Ballet School; and now regulary provides staging and production for Historic Royal Palaces such as the Family Fantastical at Kensington Palace in 2017.
OTP prides itself on its can-do problem-solving attitude and has in-house creative graphic, aesthetic and engineering design and workshop skills; a key advantage when client production briefs require visual concepts; original creative technical solutions for set; bespoke props construction; and other custom builds.
In March 2019, after eight years at Didcot, OTP moved its premises to Wallingford, between Oxford and Reading in the Thames Valley M4 corridor. The company is ideally located to enjoy easy access across Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Hampshire; as well as east-west along the M4 to Wales or central London and north-south along the A34 and M40 to the midlands or south coast.
