ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL -- American Vending Sales Inc. has announced that it now is operating under its new name, AVS Companies, in all its branches. The change comes after a year of growth during which the company acquired Lieberman Cos. (Bloomington, MN), Midwest Equipment Sales (Jackson, WI) and H.A. Franz (Dallas and Houston, TX).

"While it is a big part of our business, AVS has been much more than vending sales for years," said AVS Cos. president Vince Gumma. "With the changes we were already making as a result of our new locations, we felt this was the perfect time to rebrand." The company has changed its email domain and website addresses to avscompanies.com.

AVS Cos. was founded in Chicago in 1971 by Frank Gumma Sr., who recently marked his 60th year in the coin-op business. The company now has branches near Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Milwaukee and Minneapolis that provide new and used equipment sales, machine parts and accessories, and service for amusement and vending operators. Its Entertainment Equipment Experts (E3) division provides design and consulting services for family entertainment centers. AVS is also the leading distributor to the Illinois video lottery terminal market.
