LONDON (June 11th) – Gamesman’s wholly owned Chinese manufacturing facility in Shenzhen represents an important resource and one which is key to the company’s future growth in the region, according to Mark Smith, Managing Director of the international components developer and manufacturer.
Speaking after a successful showing at G2E Asia, where Gamesman was represented alongside US parent company Esterline, Smith said: “Asia is an important strategic market for us and one which we continue to invest in. G2E Asia offers us the chance to meet the key customers in the Asia Pacific region in one place and we had the opportunity to explain our vision and the enhanced opportunities that exist with our new owners Esterline, particularly in terms of the access it provides to new and relevant innovations arising from our combined research and development efforts.
“A recurring theme in Macau was the importance our customers in Asia place on us being accessible and well placed to serve their needs. In China we have an 3,250 sqm, modern manufacturing facility employing some 98 staff. The fact that it is wholly owned and that we are not simply buying production time from a third party, gives us a significant competitive edge in crucial areas such as quality control. This has already yielded success enabling us to develop bespoke technology products for customers in the region. Shenzhen, which we opened in 2006, increases the Gamesman footprint and complements our offices in London Gatwick and Las Vegas.”
