Dallas, TX, July 1st, 2014 – Leisure & Allied Industries today announces a major reorganization that will see Embed, LAI Games, and The Locker Network combined under a new umbrella company, the Helix Leisure group.
This combination, which becomes official on July 1st, 2014, will allow the Helix Leisure companies to leverage their combined strengths and global reach, and a seamlessly integrated product offering, while preserving each of the individual brands.
As out-of-home entertainment venues evolve towards delivering more sophisticated and spectacular experiences, Helix Leisure is uniquely positioned to fulfill the needs of operators in matching the high expectations of today’s consumers. The company has a network of six full offices worldwide to provide in-region support and a comprehensive offering of cashless debit card systems, POS and redemption solutions, customer loyalty, booking and ticketing, electronic locker operations, and a full range of amusement and prize-vending machines.
Each of the individual companies will continue trading under their current brand names and retain dedicated and focused R&D teams.
Following the reorganization, Leisure & Allied Industries will operate two fully-independent divisions: its leading FEC chain, Timezone, and the Helix Leisure group. Current CEO of LAI Games and The Locker Network, Theo Sanders, will assume the role of CEO of Helix Leisure.
Adam Steinberg, Executive Director of Leisure & Allied Industries said, “In our increasingly connected world, there is a greater expectation for a seamless user experience. We feel that combining the LAI Group businesses that deliver products, services, and systems to the industry will enable us to create even greater value and meet those expectations.”
Helix Leisure CEO Theo Sanders notes, “This marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the Embed, LAI Games, and The Locker Network teams and for our customers worldwide. As a group, this reorganization represents a major commitment to the very bright future we see for the out-of-home entertainment industry.”
