Stern Pinball, Ray Tanzer MELROSE PARK, IL -- Ray Tanzer has rejoined Stern Pinball Inc., where he had served for 11 years in an engineering and product development role.

In his new post at Stern, Tanzer will lead several large projects, including a move into larger facilities, initiatives to improve processes through an expanded supply chain and upgrades to the company's total quality management system.

Tanzer comes to Stern from Namco, where he was vice-president of engineering and manufacturing. He began his pinball career at Premier Technologies where he designed Arena, Bone Busters Inc., Class of 1812, Street Fighter 2 and Stargate, among other pin games. Sega Pinball hired him in 1996 to head up its mechanical engineering division, and he remained there until it became Stern Pinball in 1999. He left in 2008 to work for Namco.

Its creative and technical teams design, engineer and manufacture a full line of popular games, including Mustang, Star Trek, Metallica, Avengers, X-Men, AC/DC, Tron, Transformers, Avatar, Iron Man, Batman and Spider-Man.
