About us We Build Fun
At Amusement Products, our attitude is "great is never good enough." By striving for perfection we can always continue to improve and outpace the competition. Let us show you how you can too!
Starting in 1960, we have dedicated our existence to creating fun for the world through exciting products. As an operator, our first goal is to start with quality and dependability. If you can't keep it working, you won't make any money. Thus, we spent our first ten years as a manufacturer perfecting the quality and performance of our products. Having accomplished this, our next goal was to outperform the competition and gain increased customer satisfaction. How did we accomplish this? Refinement and innovation! The timeline below lists a few of the firsts we have achieved and are just a few of the reasons why Amusement Products is the leader in the family entertainment center industry. Many of these innovations have changed the industry forever.
