Gamesman, the UK-based gaming equipment components and systems manufacturer, will be in celebratory mood at the forthcoming G2E Las Vegas as it celebrates its 20th year in business. The company, which is part of the Esterline Corporation, was formed in September 1996, a period during which it has seen its annual turnover grow to $55m.
[dropcap]R[/dropcap]eflecting on the company’s two decades in gaming, Sales Director, Martin Rigby said: “In the early days the focus was very much on the UK AWP market which then accounted for 90% of Gamesman’s sales revenue. Whilst our home market is still very important the company is now a global force in gaming, looking after customers throughout the world, with a wholly owned factory in the Shenzen region of China and an office in Las Vegas.
“The contribution made by our parent company cannot be underestimated. In order to remain in pole position and stay ahead of the market, our strategy is to leverage the assets of our Esterline Partners, notably the touch screen division. Esterline’s influence has helped make us more efficient across the board and there’s no doubt that we go to G2E 2016 as a robust business and with the strong financial backing of our parent company.
There remains a deep level of design understanding, we immerse ourselves in our client’s needs and our design teams and engineers work tirelessly to develop bespoke solutions.
“Despite the transition from start-up to market-leader, I believe our outlook and philosophy has remained consistent. There remains a deep level of design understanding, we immerse ourselves in our client’s needs and our design teams and engineers work tirelessly to develop bespoke solutions. Above all, we are committed to delivering exceptional levels of customer service based on open and honest customer relationships.”
The Gamesman team on booth 3636 at G2E will comprise: Gamesman CEO, Brett Armitage; Arturo Catano, VP Global Sales; Sales Director, Martin Rigby; Nick Walter who heads the Gamesman office in Las Vegas, and Sergio Catano, newly appointed, International Sales Engineer.
