06.03.2015

NOVOMATIC Gaming Industries GmbH, (NGI), the wholly owned subsidiary of the NOVOMATIC Group has given advance notification that, as of August 1st 2015, it will reclaim the rights to the sales and distribution of its multiplayer (electronic table gaming) product range that are currently held by TCS John Huxley.

As and from August, 2015 NGI will fully control all international sales and distribution of its multiplayer product range directly, through its subsidiary companies in some jurisdictions and via certain distribution partners in specific markets. TCS John Huxley will still have access to software and spare parts support, via NGI approved local channels, for this NOVOMATIC product range and thus will be able to offer related services in certain designated markets.

Mr Jens Einhaus, Sales Director of NGI, noted: “NGI wishes to thank TCS John Huxley for its long commitment to NOVOMATIC and its market leading multiplayer product range. While circumstances now dictate that NGI will now bring commercial responsibility for these products back ‘in house’, the length of our co-operation with TCS John Huxley and the excellent relationship that our companies have shared have been a major factor in the success of NOVOMATIC multiplayer products around the world. For that I wish to express our thanks for the excellent professional relationship that NGI has enjoyed over the years with TCS John Huxley.”

NGI has taken steps to ensure customers that the transition in sales, distribution and service of multiplayer products will be seamless and that it will provide the highest level of sales and after sales service attention to any and all enquiries received on or after August 1st, 2015.
