This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Comestero change machine brand, which was acquired by SuzoHapp in 2014 and remains a leading player in the cash handling sector.

The first Comestero change machines – SimplyCoin and MultiCoin – were launched in Italy in 1997, followed by Easy Change a year later.

Considered to be the forerunners of the modern change machine, it was the simplicity and flexibility of the products that drove their international success.

The need to provide change machines for outdoor applications was solved in 1999 with the introduction of Simply Inox, which was recognised for its high level of protection against adverse weather conditions.

Further successful models followed, and 2009 marked a new era in change machine quality and design with the introduction of the innovative PRO range, developed to raise the bar in terms of functionality and application.

Meanwhile, the gaming market evolved and the need for banknote recycling within change machines arose. Swing was introduced in 2012 offering two-way money change - from banknotes to coins and from coins to banknotes – in just a few seconds and ensuring recharge autonomy and simple maintenance.

Furthermore, a new cabinet design guaranteed robustness and security alongside a high-security lock and upgraded closing mechanisms.

In 2014, Comestero was acquired by leading US parts-to-peripherals group, SuzoHapp, significantly expanding the brands presence across world gaming markets.

“The Comestero brand equals change machines, and these machines play a key role in our portfolio at SuzoHapp,” said Wilbert Bieleman, president and managing director of SuzoHapp’s EMA Components division. “This brand represents our top-of- the-range offering.”

As Comestero celebrates its 20th anniversary, SuzoHapp said it will be launching a range of special offers for its best customers.

Totally Gaming says: Comestero change machines represent the perfect synthesis between tradition and innovation. And as SuzoHapp launches a range of offers for its customers, the group will be looking ahead to another 20 years of innovation in the change machine sector.
