Two months after Bay Tek Games purchased Skee-Ball, they are still working to ensure a smooth transition of equipment between the two companies’ headquarters. In a recent update, Bay Tek said it’s sent employees on multiple trips to the company’s Chalfront, Penn., factory, although nothing has been transferred yet.
Skee-ball officially shuts down production this summer, and Bay Tek has announced several games that will be retired after that time: Skee-Ball’s Tower Of Power, Crazy Curves, Strike it Rich and Nothin’ But Net.
Bay Tek is also working to bring several titles onboard at its own production facility, including Classic Skee-Ball (10′ and 13′), Spin N Win 6′, Super Shot, Hot Shot and Centennial Alley.
On the personnel side, Bay Tek announced that they’ll be adding current Skee-Ball prexy Jeff Hudson to its sales team with an emphasis on development and growth of new and existing business for parks, carnivals and home sales. Mike Pantalone, another Skee-Ball veteran, will also join the Parts and Services Department as the customer service manager. Both bring a depth of knowledge with them about the Skee-Ball brand that Bay Tek believes will be invaluable.
