This business grew out of a wedding video venture set up by cameraman Phil Baxter in 1986. Today, it supplies professional video, broadcast and photography equipment to private production companies and national broadcasters, such as the BBC, across Europe, America, and the Far East. Last year, exports hit £20.8m, and managing director Mark Forth, 49, led a buyout from former chairman Alison Baxter, 59.
