Serious Grippage came from the humble beginnings of the grip and electric package that owner and founder, Greg Eichman, worked while he was a gaffer shooting commercials locally in New Mexico. However, by 1988, Greg saw a need for a fully functioning grip and electric rental house, expanding his inventory and landing us our first space in Santa Fe. By the mid-2000s, it was clear that we needed to expand down to Albuquerque and so we acquired a warehouse, even more gear, and a full fleet of grip trucks.
Because of our 30+ years in the New Mexico film industry, we know better than any other rental house in town what it takes to get a project from start to finish. It’s why we take such pride in our gear, our work ethic, and our craft. We have worked hard building a reputation of customer service, over the years, that has allowed us to understand the New Mexico film landscape like few others. So while we are an equipment rental house, we are first and foremost filmmakers who are passionate about filmmaking and we look forward to sharing that passion with you.
