Having gained its SFM licence from the French government to directly distribute Ainsworth slot machines and games to operators in France, Ainsworth Game Technology has now opened a brand new office in Nice in the southeast.
Operating as a subsidiary of Ainsworth (UK) Ltd, Ainsworth France has appointed Thierry Aiglon, as its Managing Director of Ainsworth France.
Mr. Aiglon, who has over 12 years of experience in gaming, both on the manufacturing and distribution front, said: “We are particularly proud of having received the SFM licence. This puts us in a strong strategic advantage as we perform the sales and service of our gaming machines directly. The timing is excellent with the ICE fast approaching. We will all be there at ICE to support our customers. We look forward to seeing them there.”
Ainsworth Founder Len Ainsworth added: “The French gaming market is one of the most important in Europe, particularly taking into account that there is no street market in France. Given our successes in Australia, Asia and America, I am confident we can mirror this success in France. We see it as essential in being able to work hand-in-hand with our customers and that explains we have further invested in this market so as to be able to sell directly our gaming solutions to the operators”.
