Daufenbach Camera (“Daufenbach”), Chicago’s largest locally founded motion picture camera equipment rental company, announced today an expansion and addition of Joe DeJulius and three new service technicians.

Joe joins Daufenbach as the new Director of Operations. He will be leading rental operations and helping streamline customer support professional productions in Chicago. Prior to Daufenbach, Joe spent twelve years at Zacuto as their Rental Manager. Joe brings many years of rental experience and will be bringing his dynamic strengths to ensure productions run smoothly and with professional service.

“He fits right at home here. We are excited to add Joe to the family and help continue to grow Chicago’s home-grown rental house,” says Lawrence Daufenbach.

“I am super excited to be working alongside Joe here at Daufenbach Camera,” says Service Manager, Michael Acuna. “He is truly one of the rental house cornerstones here in Chicago with a tremendous wealth of expertise and connections. Joe has such a positive energy about him that naturally draws people to himself.”

“I have known Lawrence, Michael, and Stephen for several years,” says Joe DeJulius. “Now that we all work at the same place, at the same time, and on the same gigs, it’s almost a dream come true. I am still smiling about it and don’t see that smile going away for a very long time. I am honored and truly excited to be a part of the family here at Daufenbach. Rock on!”

Daufenbach has also hired three additional technicians and is currently expanding their footprint with phase two of construction adding two additional full service prep bays.

“We are looking forward to being able to handle more camera preps and add to our existing prep space that local assistants have loved,” says Lawrence. “It’s a big forward step and we looking forward to continuing to give productions the best prep and equipment experience in the city.”
