The Story Behind Performance Games Inc.
Behind every great product you can usually find a great story, and Performance Games Inc. is no exception. It all starts with family, the Shelton family, to be precise.
The Shelton family’s long history in the recreational game industry goes back to the 1960’s. Patriarch Dick Shelton has more than 45 years in the manufacturing industry of the coin and consumer table market, and he passed along his knowledge to his son Todd, who decided to start Performance Games Inc. in 2006. The first person he spoke to was Dick, and from there Todd went to his Uncle Tom Shelton, who had over 35 years of engineering and manufacturing.
The company started out designing and engineering a product line of soccer, air hockey, dome hockey, shuffleboard, and electronic dart machines. After a decade of success, the management team decided to bring in the third generation, Mark Killey, to help run the model shop.
It was then the company decided to concentrate more on its product line of soccer, air hockey, dome hockey, and a new line of shuffleboard table designs. However, they continue to contract manufacturing, all while offering a full line of designs.
The Philosophy Behind Performance Games Inc.
It’s not difficult to go out and buy an air hockey or shuffleboard table from someone on the Internet or in a big chain store. But what you won’t get is what PGI can provide — they guarantee the highest quality and durability in the industry and industry leading warranties on every product.
While they manufacture most of the products, the models are contracted out, and the manufacturers have to meet the strict guidelines and specifications. And those principles have paid off in the form of not only a loyal customer base, but awards for soccer and air hockey tables in Consumers Digest magazine as Best Buy’s for their last three publications.
It’s because of that dedication to quality and rich history that PGI has been able to sell contracted products to one of the largest pool table manufactures and licensing companies in the industry and USA.
Fortunately for the people of Michigan, those quality products can also be found at Emerald Leisure Source — one of the only dealers in Michigan.
What Sets Performance Games Inc. Apart From the Rest
If you don’t see a table you like, chances are they can create one for you with their customization program. They offer customization options on nearly all of their tables that allow
customers to ultimately build the table that best meets their needs — from stain and laminate color to tempered glass and LED lighting. They’re also the only manufacturer to have interchangeable standard/telescoping rods on all 1” cabinets.
Not only that, but nearly every table purchased from PGI can be matched with other products from their product line to build a cohesive entertainment space. In fact, many of their tables are already retro-styled to match your existing components.
And finally, they’re all about innovation and looking ahead to the future with new products, options, and accessories for their tables to reflect the customer’s changing needs.
