imgButtenheim, Germany (January 3, 2013)—Friedrich Salzbrenner, founder and co-founder of the Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup, recently celebrated his 80th birthday.

For more than half a century, Salzbrenner's great passion has been amateur radio, which may have been one reason why he chose professional audio technology as his profession and started a small company. His organization, which has its headquarters in Buttenheim, a municipality near Bamberg (Franconia, Germany), has grown continuously to become a group that today employs 270 worldwide.

Today, Mediagroup products play significant roles in a broad-based market. In addition to theaters and opera houses, clients include major radio and TV companies, government buildings and institutions, colleges and universities, sports venues, and live events all over the world.

Friedrich Salzbrenner has since handed over the reins of his ever-expanding business to his three sons, but he still offers them help and advice from his desk every day.
