The Spidercam concept is based on the idea of a winch driven payload suspended from a cable. Over the following years the idea evolved 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 two subsidiaries in Hamburg, Germany and New Jersey, USA. Together the Spidercam group offers its services and know-how to productions and clients around the world.

The founder Jens C. Peters still offers consulting services to the company, while the management duties have been handed over to the next generation.

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 is undertaken at the Austrian site.. Any special projects are also realized in Austria.
