Further History on Polar Graphics:
Polar Graphics has been importing and distributing products for the film, TV and Multimedia industries for over 28 years - however, our history goes far beyond that. Many of you may recall Polar Video. You may even remember the notorious Polar/VME IBC parties at the Subterfuge club and Pink Coconut in Brighton. Well, Peter Rowsell, who is our MD and founding member of Polar Graphics, was a partner in Polar Video and largely responsible for those manic evenings.
Peter started his career at Eclair Debrie and Rank Film Equipment selling lighting, film cameras and then later moving into the fledgling video industry. Peter built upon his experiences in the film markets to establish a European network of resellers for Convergence Corp, who manufactured the first linear joystick operated editor in the world. Subsequently, he joined forces with Fred Smith to form Polar Video and established a worldwide distribution network for their products.
Peter started Polar Graphics in 1994 and his decades of experience in sales, marketing and manufacturing has led to a successful distribution company with strong relationships with both manufacturers and dealers alike.
Our main aim, here at Polar is to have an exclusive range of non-competitive products and to distribute those products through their UK and European dealer network.
