It’s a very proud moment today for myself, and everyone associated with my company, as we complete our first 2 production games, box them and ship them out.
This event also sees us making history as we are now officially the UK’s first ever mainstream manufacturer of coin-operated pinball machines.
It has taken 3.5 years to get to this point, but we have designed what we believe to be a truly innovative pinball system that will be used for many years to come.
We would like to thank Full Throttle customers for their patience, as their games will start to be completed from next week onwards. The first 2 games are USA show games, and these games are heading for Boston for the Pintastic New England show early next month.
From this point onwards, we will be concentrating on upscaling our business. Much of the hard work has been done now. We have our suppliers, we have a lot of parts in stock. We have also fine-tuned a lot of our manufacturing processes, which will see us complete many of these processes in-house from now on. More news about this shortly.
Our factory and our facilities are set up to allow us to make hundreds of games a month. This can be increased to thousands of games a month by using the second half of our factory, if the business dictates it. We have started slowly, and will start upscaling from this point onwards.
So – thanks for following us so far and we all hope you enjoy the game we have now, and the games we have planned for the future.
