D-BOX renews its agreement with ECCO Cine Supply and Service GmbH

February 1, 2023

ECCO has made Germany the 3rd largest market for D-BOX
on the eve of its upcoming 25th anniversary



D-BOX Technologies Inc. and ECCO Cine Supply and Service GmbH, a leading cinema integrator in Germany, are proud to have recently celebrated 10 years of partnership and to have signed a new contract. The tight-knit relationship between D-BOX and ECCO has helped to strengthen both companies, with ECCO being responsible for Germany becoming D-BOX’s third largest market, behind only Canada and USA. This partnership milestone and contract extension also comes just months before D-BOX’s 25th corporate anniversary, highlighting the success of both corporations throughout the years. 

Working together to take advantage of the increased demand for premium theatrical experiences, D-BOX and ECCO have worked over the last decade to deliver approximately 170 screens with multiple rows of haptic D-BOX seats. With the number of D-BOX screens supplied by ECCO increasing consistently by about 10 to 20 per year with both classic and luxury seating, the partnership continues to prove successful—especially considering there are now D-BOX ECCO screens in the UK, Germany, Egypt, Austria, and more.  

“D-BOX may not have grown into the international business that it is today without the help of our amazing partners, including ECCO Cine Supply and Service,” said Sébastien Mailhot, President and CEO of D-BOX. “As we look forward to soon celebrating our 25th anniversary, we also celebrate the longevity of key partnerships such as the one we have with ECCO. Thomas and his team’s expertise and contributions over the years have been invaluable to us and we look forward to what the next 10 years will bring.”

“Back in the day, when I first encountered D-BOX in Los Angeles, I knew immediately that D-BOX’s technology would be successful in the theatrical industry and I had a hunch that motion was going to be the next big thing,” said Thomas Rüttgers, founder of ECCO Cine Supply and Service. “With our long history and partnership, there are endless possibilities for where we could go in the future. I can only see us continuing to expand and growing together as businesses and partners.”
