Andamiro USA relocates HQ from southern California to northern Texas
Andamiro USA Corp., a leading arcade amusement company, is relocating its business operations from Gardena, California, to Irving, Texas. The new Texas-based headquarters and warehouse will be fully operational by late June, before the company’s building lease in California ends on 30 June.
The new address is 2222 Century Circle, Irving TX 75062. The main phone number is unchanged at (310) 767-5800. The new fax number is (972) 445-9111.
Andamiro USA purchased the 25,000-sq.ft. building in late 2019, three months before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the world economy. During the downtime, Andamiro made numerous upgrades to its building, renovating interiors, expanding warehouse space, creating a game showroom, and constructing separate zones for parts and technical support.
Key members of Andamiro USA’s parts, service and administrative departments are relocating with the company, which will help mitigate any relocation disruptions. The company is also planning to expand the Texas-based team beginning with new hires for parts and accounting.
“This relocation plan has been in the works for several years and the time to execute on it couldn’t be better,” said Andamiro USA president Drew Maniscalco. “Moving to Irving has several benefits. Its central location in the U.S. will improve shipping rates and delivery times, and its central time zone means East Coast operators won’t have to wait three hours before they get a call back from parts or service.”
In addition to its favourable geography, Irving is close to Dallas-Fort Worth and its international airports, offers easy access to trains and thoroughfares, and is made up of diverse cultures. For these reasons and more, several Fortune 500 companies are located here.
“Being centrally located benefits our ecosystem,” Maniscalco said. “Andamiro is now in a position to invite customers to our building to see new games in person – I’m looking forward to in person! We have set up a working showroom for our games and our door is open to all.”
Several major national accounts and authorized distributors are within driving distance to Andamiro’s new headquarters. “It will be a tremendous help to get their feedback – live and in person. You can’t do that by sharing a photo or PowerPoint presentation in a Zoom meeting.”
Founded in 1992, Andamiro Co. Ltd., parent company of Andamiro USA, opened its US division in 2000 in southern California, where it has operated until now.
“When the ANDAMIRO letters were placed on the new building, it really hit me…this is our new home,” Maniscalco said.
