Greetings Pinball Fans,
After a productive week spent at JJP's Midwest Campus, Jack returns home to New Jersey with a big smile on his face and a progress report.
We are very excited to release a small portion of the playfield artwork created by Greg Freres, The Witch's Castle upper playfield. In coming weeks we will reveal much more including the playfield artwork which is in its final stages.
This week the second round of prototype cabinets arrived and final tweaks and modifications were made so that production cabinets will begin running within two weeks and heading to NJ where the production process will begin.
These game cabinets are constructed in a different way from any pinball cabinet in the past. The assembly as well as the construction techniques require more labor and more money to produce but will provide the level of quality and craftsmanship that JJP represents.
Jack was there to be a part of some final key decisions on many items and to meet with some key vendors to finalize production orders. Jack returns to the MC next week as well and will report on more progress.
We mentioned that Ken Holland joined JJP last October as our Production Manager. Ken has been involved in manufacturing thousands of games for several NJ amusement game manufacturers since 1974. Ken brings invaluable experience and dedication to JJP.
Today we are thrilled that Roger Harris has joined Jersey Jack Pinball, Inc. Roger brings with him 23 years of fabrication, production, design and manufacturing experience. Roger is truly a Jack of All Trades and a Master of them. Together with Ken Holland Roger will be responsible for the fit out of the assembly line, fabrication of line fixtures, assembly, testing and for many aspects that will go into making the greatest pinball machine ever at JJP.
