Egripment Support Systems Expands Further in South America with Congo Films
Founded in 1983 in Colombia, Congo Films is a fully operational rental and sales company for the broadcast and film industry that opened its fifth location in Lima, Peru last year. Congo Films' other offices are located in Bogota and Cartagena, Colombia as well as in Chile and Panama.
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."
