07/02/2013

Esterline Corporation, a leading specialty manufacturer serving aerospace, defense and industrial markets, has announced that its Interface Technologies business platform has acquired Gamesman Limited (Gamesman), a privately held gaming equipment components and systems manufacturer.

Like Esterline, Gamesman produces advanced touch panel displays, programmable button decks, mechanical buttons and other key components for leading OEM gaming system manufacturers worldwide.  The company holds multiple technology patents and operates facilities in Europe, North America and China.

Dennis Staver, Platform President for Esterline Interface Technologies, said, “Gamesman expands Esterline’s capabilities and market reach with a strong leadership team, great products and an important portfolio of customers in key markets.”  He added, “We believe our combined operations will both improve our ability to serve current customers, and present an even more compelling partner for OEM manufacturers in this growing market.”

Mark Smith, who will continue to serve as Managing Director of Gamesman, said: “I am delighted to have completed the agreement with Esterline, and to be part of an organization which shares the same principles of product innovation and commitment to customer service.

“We will continue to apply those core principles to our gaming business, and look forward to delivering new and relevant innovations gained from our combined research and development effort. I am grateful to our partnered customers and suppliers for their continued support as we embark on the next exciting chapter in the life of the company.”
