Egripment Support Systems Expands Further in South America with Congo Films

.

Over the past few years, the South American film and television production industry has been growing by leaps and bounds. Newly approved laws allowing for production incentives in the region, along with the natural beauty of the landscape, has led to substantial growth in the business, creating a demand for higher quality production equipment. Fortunately, rental and sales company Congo Films also continues to expand and is now able to supply businesses in this growing area.  At the forefront of its offerings are products from Egripment Support Systems, manufacturer of high-end camera support systems and remote broadcast solutions for the film and broadcast industries.

Boots, Managing Director for Egripment USA, first met Congo Films President Carlos Congote about 16 years ago when the sales and rental company was looking to acquire distribution rights for Egripment in Colombia. Two years later, they mutually agreed that Congo would represent Egripment in Colombia, along with additional South American representation.

"We are very fond of the long-lasting and productive relationship we have had with Carlos and Congo Films," says Boots. "As Congo's expansion continues, so does Egripment's outreach in the rapidly expanding South American market. I traveled with Carlos on several occasions to visit TV studios and production companies throughout the region, and I can honestly say he works harder than anyone I had ever seen before."
