MBF Filmtechnik was established in 1982 in Frankurt/Main. Five partners decided to align and fill a hole in the local film technology market. Until then, devices had to be rent from Munich or Berlin, which meant long transportation routes and often inadequate equipment quality.
The item the five began their business with were 20 spotlights bought right from their manufacturers all over Europe. This built the basis for today’s close cooperation between the company and her suppliers.
The growing market for a local equipment supply sped up the company’s development. Dollies and cranes were included in the stock. Successful shoots for music videos, TV commercials and TV shows made the camera technology stock grow constantly.
In 1997, the company moved into its current premises. There, the whole range of high-quality film technique is stored in 3.000 square meters of storage space. Besides the rental and sale of film technique, useful auxiliary and expendable materials are stored here to be offered.
Due to high demands, our location in Hamburg was opened in 1998, which we turned into an independent GmbH in 2006. In summer 2010, we opened our third location in Berlin.
While we employ eight members of staff and two interns in the north, our Frankfurt staff grew to 19 permanent employees, six in training and interns. In Berlin, five employees will take good care of you.
Ever since we started our business, direct customer contact and an individual advisory service is of particular importance to us. As important is the close cooperation with our traders and the users of the technology, which helps us gain better knowledge of our products.
Combined with a continuous professional development and open house events with camera operators and assistants, we create a constant flow of knowledge and ideas. This results in our in-house workshop triggering new technical developments and implementing custom-made products. You are the one to benefit from the results!
