Yesterday an incredible bench was unveiled at CVP Midlands in memory of the company’s co-founder Phil Baxter. It has been hand crafted by the artist Ray Lonsdale of Two Red Rubber Things, following the commission of Phil’s wife, Alison Baxter. Feel free to visit the bench when you are at our CVP Midlands branch, there’s something special inside the head of the sculpture..
My one and only picture with the late Phil Baxter, a giant in professional video retail, Phil was straight talking, no messing about and did not tolerate fools gladly. His number one priority was his family and his business.
Phil also liked fast cars and embedded inside the statues head is a replica of his own car a McLaren MP4-12C BS Edition a fitting tribute to a great man.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
