When we started production of our first tripod heads in 2001, we sought to craft a durable and reliable product with unparalleled features for our customers. Since then this intent has been behind every product we've designed. Every stage of every Acratech product happens in our Pomona, California facility. In the almost two decades we've been crafting tripod heads, we've never raised prices, in spite of rising overhead costs of everything from materials to labor to electricity. In order to maintain the level of precision and durability you count on in Acratech products, the time has come to finally raise our prices. This increase will become effective January 1, 2019 on many of our products. We thank you for your understanding, and continued support.
