About Us

The dawn of the last decade heralded the birth of FILMLINE Limited in 1990 thanks to a great inspiration by two gentlemen Mr Terry Clegg and Robert Halmi. Their vision was anchored on the need to establish a vibrant outfit to venture into the niche market of clearing cargo for the filming industry.
