Vekoma Brought out by Sansei

Postby Thekingin64 » Fri Mar 30, 2018 2:56 pm

Interesting piece of news here. Vekoma has just been brought out by the Japanese company, Sansei. Sansei also own S&S so may mean a partnership between the 2 companies.

Vekoma Website wrote:Vlodrop - Tokyo, March 30, 2018. Dutch roller coaster manufacturer Vekoma Rides (Vekoma), based in Vlodrop, the Netherlands, was acquired today by Sansei Technologies (Sansei), a Japanese company listed on Tokyo Stock Exchange. With the 100% acquisition of Vekoma (100% of the shares will be taken over), Sansei will increase its global market share in the field of designing, supplying and installing roller coasters. Headquartered in Osaka, Japan and active in the global entertainment equipment industry, Sansei achieved a turnover of around 225 million euros in 2017, largely from the sale of attractions to amusement parks and dynamic stage installations to theatres.
