aggi Coniature is today one of Italy's major suppliers of money-handling products to the amusement and vending markets and has been operating for nearly seventy years. With offices in Milan and in the historic town of Ferrara, the company has been a Money Controls sales and distribution partner for more than 30 years. With the signing of the new agreement, key Maggi accounts are now supplied direct from Money Controls' Bergamo warehouse with next-day delivery.
Milan-based Universal Services s.r.l. has been operating since 1999 as a one-stop shop for service and repair of money-handling equipment and is renowned for its rapid response, technical expertise and excellent customer service. Following an intensive training programme, the company is now a service agent for Money Controls' products, both in and out of warranty.
Stephan Rosseneu, Money Controls' Western European Sales Manager, based in the company's Milan office, explained the reasoning behind the two agreements: “We have enjoyed considerable growth in Italy in recent years, which led to the opening of our Italian subsidiary last year. The next, logical step was to use this new facility to supply products direct to Maggi's key account customers, streamlining the distribution process. With our growth in sales we also needed to strengthen our service support. Having worked closely with Universal Services for some time, we were aware of their capabilities and resources, and had no hesitation in appointing the company as our service agent.”
With the most comprehensive portfolio of cash-handling products, Money Controls was already a major supplier to the Italian amusement market. Implementation of the Comma 6A legislation has strengthened this position, thanks to the Compact Hopper and Combi Hopper system. Both meet all the technical requirements of the new regulation, whilst providing field-proven reliability and security.
Developed primarily for the Italian Comma 6A market, the Combi Hopper system features a low float, high security and fast payout of 2, 1 and 50c euro 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 and is proving to be the optimal Comma 6A payout solution for leading operators.
