Company Founder Friedrich Salzbrenner Celebrates His 80th Birthday


For more than half a century, his great passion has been amateur radio. This may have been one reason why Friedrich Salzbrenner chose his profession from a similar area, namely professional audio technology, and started a small company. Today, the founder and co-founder of the SALZBRENNER STAGETEC MEDIAGROUP, a stable group of companies specialising in the pro-audio business, turns 80.

His organisation, which has its headquarters in Buttenheim, a municipality near Bamberg (Franconia, Germany), has grown continuously to become the group of today with 270 employees worldwide. Thanks to their ultra-reliable solutions, many of them designed and installed by Friedrich Salzbrenner himself in earlier years, countless premieres have been completed smoothly and successfully.

Today, MEDIAGROUP products play significant roles in a broad-based market. In addition to theatres and opera houses, clients include major radio and TV companies, government buildings and institutions, colleges and universities, sports venues, and live events all over the world.


Meanwhile Friedrich Salzbrenner has handed over the reins of his ever-expanding business to his three sons. However, he still offers them help and advice from his desk every day.
