ERA has been delivering IT and workflow solutions since 1999.

Today, the company is one of the UK’s leading independent providers of IT workflow solutions for clients in the media, VFX, post-production and broadcast industries, providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and other managed services to meet the needs of demanding projects.

Many of our top customers have been with us for over 10 years; in that time, we have invested in infrastructure that enables us to serve customers with operations across the UK, India and Canada.

We are also expanding our reach into the gaming, architecture and oil and gas sectors, working with our partners to help reduce costs and deliver flexible, fast and efficient ways for our clients to do business better.

Our story


ERA was incorporated in Preston, Lancashire, where we operated initially as a reseller of RAID (redundant array of independent disks) storage systems to the media and entertainment industry.


We opened a new London office in Camden (in addition to our existing Preston office).


After a period of unprecedented growth in the London market, we moved operations lock, stock and barrel to Soho, London — placing ERA at the heart of the vibrant post-production/VFX marketplace.


After five successful years in Soho, we moved out to Kings Cross, London and started our journey to becoming a hosted services provider.


ERA launched the early offerings of Infrastructure as a Service to our existing customer base.


We made the move to our current offices based in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, to be closer to the major data centre hubs located in West London and demonstrate our ability to operate outside of London — leveraging the local data centre capacity, low-cost power availability and highly skilled engineers.


ERA partnered with Rockpool Investments to support the business through a period of fast organic growth and look at a series of strategic acquisitions.

“At ERA, we are dedicated to driving positive change and fostering a sustainable future for everyone. As part of our commitment, we are actively working towards B Corp Certification to build a business that prioritises people and the planet. This certification will guide us towards a more ethical and impactful future by emphasising environmental and social responsibility through ethical business practices”.
