Sega Amusements USA Consolidates

12/07/2011

The Vending Times reports that Sega Amusements USA is consolidating and reorganizing as part of a larger effort to create cost savings and greater efficiencies. To implement the strategy, the American affiliate of Japan’s Sega Sammy Holdings Inc. will technically cease operations on July 31. However, according to officials close to Sega Amusements USA, the restructuring is simply a matter of reassigning corporate entities with an eye toward savings.

Sega’s U.S. workforce will only be reduced from nine full-time people to seven. Operations will relocate on Aug. 1 to a smaller facility in Wood Dale, IL, one mile from present Sega Amusements USA headquarters here.

All email addresses, fax and phone numbers will remain the same. Sega Amusements USA’s website is undergoing an upgrade to fireproof it against hacking of the type that occurred in recent weeks at the Sega Japan sites, but it will remain active at the same address – SegaArcade.com.
