Eurocoin 2nd Quarter sales rose more than 20% versus the same period in 2015, as the Directors announced a company record sales total in the months of April-June 2016. Whilst many of the company’s Divisions contributed to this outstanding result, there is little doubt that the creation of the Eurocoin Central European production & assembly hub in Budapest has been a key investment that has underpinned this significant growth.

 “Our involvement in Budapest dates back to 1993, when we first opened our sales and service office in Hungary at the time of the law change, which enabled AWP operations” explained Eurocoin Director, Colin Veitch. “We have maintained & expanded our corporate presence here in Budapest, and across the Central European region, giving us an unrivalled footprint of offices, service centres and hard-working team members both here and in the surrounding countries. This local support, combined with our specialist European commercial team’s activities, has been welcomed by both manufacturers and machine operators, and we are grateful for their support and encouragement”.

 Managed directly by Purchasing & Production Director, Richard Langston, the Budapest warehouse and production centre already receives more than 70% of all Eurocoin inbound stock and raw material shipments from around the world. The well-trained assembly team at the facility ensure that client orders are processed quickly and efficiently, and to the highest quality standards. “We assemble, final test and ship enormous quantities of world-class technical components from the Budapest hub, built to individual customer specifications. These include our wide range of PCT multi-touch displays, thermal printers, and bill acceptors​” confirmed Langston “We’re very pleased with the results of this major initiative over the past few years, which has totally complimented the production & distribution work we do from our other warehouse and production centres in Rotterdam and the UK”.

 The advantages to European customers are clear. Eurocoin’s Budapest location has an enviable location at the very centre of regional gaming manufacturing and operating. Prague, Vienna, Belgrade, Bratislava & Ljubljana are all no more than a few hours away by road, meaning that rapid deliveries are achieved, plus after-sales and technical support is on-hand for clients.

 Further regional expansion is already in the pipeline, confirmed Veitch, as the company roll-out the next stage of their European investment “We are delighted with the results being achieved by our commercial teams across Europe. We are receiving great support from both our clients and our supply-chain partners, all of whom see the genuine value of locating Eurocoin stock and the production process closer to our regional customers’ facilities. We will be announcing additional investment for growth here in Central Europe in the coming weeks”​
