(US).- US Gasser Chair Company has completed the production and delivery of more than 1,180 gaming and slot stools to ThistleDown Racino, the nearly 90-year-old Thoroughbred racetrack-turned-racino located in Cleveland, Ohio.
After an us$ 88 million investment and months of renovations, ThistleDown reopened in early April 2013.
The new ThistleDown Racino features a 5,295 sqm gaming floor with nearly 1,200 slot machines, as well as new dining and nightlife options. Located on 51.7 hectares 10 miles southeast of downtown Cleveland, ThistleDown will continue to offer live racing from April through November at its one-mile oval racetrack, as well as simulcast racing year-round.
Ensuring that ThistleDown customers have a comfortable spot to sit, play and relax was and is a top priority of the racino, thus, its management tapped industry leader Gasser Chair Company to manufacture its 1,180 slot stools. The stylish slot stool is manufactured with an aluminum base construction, ergonomic contour seat and flex-back technology with lumbar support for player extended comfort. Every stool was manufactured in the US at Gasser's energy-efficient production facility in Youngstown, Ohio.
"We are extremely pleased with the successful execution and debut of Gasser chairs at the famed ThistleDown Racino," said Roger Gasser, Sales and Development Manager with Gasser Chair Company. "It is yet another significant milestone in our continued partnership with Caesars Entertainment."
Gasser's gaming history stems from a 1960s meeting between George Gasser, co-founder of Gasser Chair Company, and Bill Harrah, founder of Harrah's Casino, when George loaned Bill 10 chairs to place at slot machines, a game traditionally played standing up.
