itzhugh added: “With the orders we now have in hand coupled with what we have already shipped YTD, we are pleased to say we have crossed the 1,000,000 chip threshold for 2010”. Then, he concluded: “Aside from the obvious benefit of the sales we hope these orders not only shine the spotlight on Gemaco’s chip line but ultimately convince decision makers that there is another high quality gaming chip alternative out there”.
Gemaco started manufacturing chips in 2009 after acquiring substantially all of the assets of an injection molding company in the Kansas City area that had produced the Bud Jones chip for many years. “The interesting thing that most don’t realize is that for many years literally millions of Bud Jones branded chips were made right here in the Kansas City area and it was this very company that Gemaco acquired” Fitzhugh concluded.
