New company steps in to supply spares
Reverchon International Design, the French bumper car specialist, has ceased trading after more than 80 years in business. The firm shut the doors at its premises in Samois, about an hour from Paris, earlier this year, citing “adverse trading conditions in the amusement business.”
Founded by Gaston Reverchon, the company split some years ago from its ride manufacturing arm and appeared to be less risk adverse as a consequence. Although its cars remain the preferred choice of many operators, it appears that some are now upgrading less frequently than they did, and this combined with the economic situation in general all played a part in the company’s downfall.
In a notice to customers, Philippe Reverchon wrote: “I was always keen to manufacture a high quality product with an attractive design. I wish to express my personal thanks and regards to all our clients, it has been a great pleasure working with you all and we will never forget this.”
A new company, DPR Spares, has been established to offer parts and service for all Reverchon International Design products
