Award-winning cinema lens motor manufacturer Hedén has appointed motion picture lens specialist Duclos Lenses as the U.S. hub to provide professional motor repair, maintenance, and upgrades for the complete line of Hedén motors.
Hedén is known for manufacturing some of the most reliable, high-quality motors for motion picture lens control. Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, Hedén has produced some industry favorites such as the famed M26T zoom motor. Their current range of motors includes super-light models like the LM30 to the powerhouse M26VE-LX. Being based in Sweden was somewhat limiting when it came to offering maintenance for the products which led to a search for a partner that would serve the brand and customer base well.
We held off on offering service for products other than lenses at Duclos for decades. But after meeting with the team from Hedén and seeing how passionate they are about their products, we knew our company’s values and goals were well aligned. We spent months learning the ins and outs of the various motor designs, receiving training directly from the engineers at Hedén to make sure our staff of technicians was not only comfortable, but proficient in order to offer the highest quality support for Hedén motors.Matthew Duclos – Duclos Lenses
