Flipper Addict, located in Nouméa, is a space dedicated to playing, buying, renting and maintaining pinball machines, created by a passionate pinball father-and-son team.

"We are very happy to be able to work with Stern Pinball because this will allow us to place more pinball machines in bars and homes, to sell and rent," said Cedric Heidelberg, president of Flipper Addict.

Cartimex, headquartered in Guayquil, is a technology company founded in 1996. It is recognized in the Ecuadorian market for its consistent innovation, including avant-garde products with price and credit flexibility.

"Cartimex is pleased to be added as a Stern distributor, and thanks the whole Stern Pinball team for the opportunity for continuous, side-by-side growth," said product manager Emilio Zambrano.

"Stern Pinball's expansion into New Caledonia and Cartimex marks a monumental distribution accomplishment and will help spread the passion for Stern Pinball products into entirely new markets," said Stern Pinball chairman and chief executive Gary Stern.
