SUZOHAPP North America Turns 30

Mount Prospect, Illinois - SUZOHAPP North America is proud to celebrate its 30th year in business. It gives the company great opportunity to reflect on the growth and evolution of the business from an entrepreneurial distribution business based in the suburbs of Chicago servicing the Amusement and Gaming market segments. To the current day global manufacturing business with over 1,000 employees and offices in 19 countries servicing the Retail, Financial, Transportation, Vending, Gaming and Amusement market segments.

In 1986, Happ Controls led by founder Frank Happ opened its doors to support the growing amusement market. What started out as a very successful parts distribution business has now grown organically and through acquisitions into a global manufacturer of highly engineered components and solutions servicing all key market segments.

"We are committed to providing our valued customers with innovative solutions backed up with superior service which in turn improves their profitability". "We would also like to thank our employees for their commitment to make the company the success it is today", said Americas President Ron Partridge.
