he company, which has been operating in Italy for over 20 years with distributor Maggi Coniature, has raised its profile significantly this year with the opening of a new office and warehouse near Milan, and the incorporation of Money Controls srl.
Stephan Rosseneu, Western European Sales Manager, based in the new office, commented: “The new premises and structure give us a higher profile but, more importantly, enable us to deliver an improved and faster customer response, with the warehouse providing local availability of equipment. In addition, our technical capability has been strengthened with the appointment of Davide Spada, our new sales engineer, who has extensive technical knowledge and experience of the coin slot market.”
“Already, in only its third year, the show is firmly established on the gaming and amusement calendar. It is an ideal opportunity to showcase our Comma6A solutions to OEMs, operators, providers and distributors. It's also a chance to meet up with existing and new customers, and further strengthen our working relationships with players throughout the industry,” he added.
The Combi Hopper system takes pride of place on the Money Controls stand. This was developed specifically to meet the requirements of the Italian AWP market, featuring a low float, high security and fast payout of 2 euros, 1 euro and 50 cents coins from just two hoppers, with no hunting for coins. Launched two years ago, it has already been integrated into machines by major software houses in Italy. It is now available with a high-capacity bowl, making it the ideal solution for handling the increased jackpots in Italy.
The stand will also feature the rest of the company's extensive range of hoppers, as well as the Ardac Elite and Lumina bill validators, for the casino and amusement markets, respectively. This is the first major show in Italy to feature the ground-breaking Ardac Elite, which has met with unparalleled success since its launch last year. In the last six months, several casinos, including the Casino di Sanremo, have undertaken retrofit programmes, installing Ardac Elite in place of existing validators and so extending the life of their machine park.
