ARRI Rental’s new East Coast headquarters has opened its doors in New York.
The Secaucus, New Jersey and Brooklyn, New York, offices will now be operating out of a consolidated facility in Queens. The 42,000 square-foot facility is located at 4727 36th St., Long Island City, 11101 and is situated in the heart of New York’s studio landscape.
“The relocation to our new North American HQ serves as another example of our dedication to supporting filmmakers in the hub of New York’s production scene, offering timely services and extensive support to our clients and creatives,” says Andy Shipsides, president of ARRI Rental North America. “This also comes at a time when the production community is experiencing exponential growth. Our team is very excited to offer their expertise at the new location, and we look forward to this new facility providing a valuable resource for the community.”
The three-story space will include 10 large prep bays, four feature rooms, a machine shop, a customer lounge and two 8,000-square-foot rooftop decks designed for events, camera tests, product demonstrations, training and screenings. The Long Island City location was chosen to offer easy access via highways and public transit, and is in close proximity to major stages in the metropolitan area.
ARRI Rental will still operate a satellite office in New Jersey primarily for sales.
