Based on the idea of a cable suspended, winch driven payload carriers a small wooden model was created in the year 2000. Over the following years this model should evolve into the spidercam. The one-man-company, operating out of a basement, grew with the success of its product and nowadays consists of the headquarters in Feistritz im Rosental, Austria, and three subsidiaries in Hamburg/ Germany, Charlotte/USA and Sydney/Australia. Together the spidercam group offers its services and know-how to productions and clients around the world.

The headquarters in Austria house the main administration and act as the engineering core of spidercam GmbH: Construction of new systems, research and development as well as repairs and maintenance works are done here. Furthermore all special projects are realized by Austria.

The offices in Germany, USA and Australia focus on the rental aspect of our operation. Together with our growing network of partners we can offer spidercam services in almost every location on earth.
