German term or phrase: Effekt-Unternehmen
In a summary of the year's accomplishments for a firm: "Synergien dieser Art machen auch die 51 prozentige XXX-Beteiligung XXXX Media zu mehr als einer aeusserst erfolgreichen, mit sehr guter Perspektive ausgestatteten Fernsehfilmproduktion. Die Verfilmungen der Romane XXX und XXX steigern die bereits gute Auslastung der Effekt-Unternehmen, denn die Quotenbringer erfahren nunmehr ebenfalls ihrer Postproduktion ab Werk."

special effects company
Explanation:
From your context, it sounds like this is a company that provides special effects (visual, sound, etc.), i.e. s.th. like George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic.

No hits at all on Effekt-Unternehmen or Effektunternehmen, but a good number of hits on both "effect company +TV and/or postproductin" and "effects company +TV".

Maybe some of the following examples can help you figure out if this is indeed what is menat by Effektunternehmen:
