Eric Falkenberg

23rd April 2021


We are deeply saddened to hear about the death of Eric Falkenberg. Eric was a key figure in the Sachtler story and we have him to thank for the company we are today. 

As Executive Vice President of the Sachtler Corporation of America, Eric was responsible for introducing the Sachtler range of tripods and fluid heads to the USA in 1982.  As Sachtler approaches its 40th successful year in America, we acknowledge his remarkable achievement in establishing the brand as a leader in camera supports for the broadcast industry.

Everyone at Sachtler and the Vitec Group over the decades from staff to camera operators and stakeholders have all benefited from his imagination, energy and passion in those early days.

Please join us in expressing our heartfelt condolences to Eric’s family.
