Happ Controls was founded in 1986. The company has additional distribution centers in Las Vegas, NV, Greenville, SC, New Castle, DE, and Broadstairs, Kent, United Kingdom. It employs 300 people worldwide, and has estimated revenues of about $50 million. About 40 percent of its business is to OEM customers.
The company is known for its production and distribution of coin doors, bill validators, monitors, touch screens, power supplies, optical guns, trackballs, push buttons, driving controls and joysticks for amusement games and gaming machines. More recently, it specialized in product sub-assemblies to provide greater value to both its OEM and end user customers.
The company will retain the Happ Controls name and Frank Happ, founder, will remain with the company as vice chairman as well as a significant minority shareholder. 'I am proud of our past accomplishments of transforming the business from a startup company to a regional wholesaler to a leading international manufacturer and distributor,' said Frank Happ. 'The continued growth of the business requires additional capital to support future expansion, both internally and through additional acquisitions.'
