MARBELLA, Spain -- Hans Rosenzweig, a pioneer in the German amusement machine industry, died here on March 21. He was 78.

Rosenzweig was best known as managing director of Germany's Nova Apparate, part of the Gauselmann Group. The company was Europe's main importer of amusement machines, including Williams and Bally pinballs, in the 1970s and '80s, and enjoyed success during the videogame boom years.

According to Intergame, a trade magazine, Rosenzweig was born in 1934 in Kulmach, Bavaria, and began his career in the games industry in 1962 as a journalist with Sigert-Verlag (Braunschweig), which is now Automaten-Markt.

Rosenzweig was involved in Euromat, the federation of European coin machine trade associations, and represented Germany on its board for many years. He served as Euromat's vice-president and later honorary president, Intergame noted.

He is survived by his wife Ute, a son and two daughters. He had lived in retirement in Spain since 1998.
