Although Prosup is a global player in the camera support system market it’s still a family run business with the development and production centre in Nederhorst Den Berg in the Netherlands and a preference for local suppliers: “I work well with local companies . “With our combined expertise the sky is the limit in design and development” Prosup camera equipment is hired around the world – even for the largest sports events in ie Rio and Football Championships esteemed cameraman made use of Prosup’s camera equipment.
Eric ideas often arise from practical situations: “For example, I see that a Q-Ball (round-rotating camera) could also make a full 360 ° vertical movement at a certain recording. Then I start to think and usually a solution arises in my mind. We carefully thinks in detail about every hole and screw to make our products robuust and stable”
Gyro Gearloose in the camera support industry
Entrepeneur Eric Steenvoorden designed products like the Tango track slider, Laptop Dolly, E-Jib camera jib arm and the Q Ball Remote Head. With his latest invention, the TED, Eric has proven once again to be a pioneer in product development.
About the cooperation between Casu Granderath and Prosup
The cooperation between Casu Granderath and Prosup started in 2012. Although both Eric Steenvoorden as well as Florian Granderath had a long history of more than 20 years in the camera support industry they had never met in person. It was Mr. Peter Koning (CEO for Eurogrip) that introduced Florian (at that time working at Panther) to Eric (ex employee of Egripment).
A match made in heaven
This combination has proven to be very successful. Florian with its great product knowledge and customer focus has since given valuable input to Eric who has translated wishes and customer feedback into actual products. It was Florian who suggested to start making a camera slider – which ended up in the production of the successful Tango slider.
