A CHALFORD-BASED company which designs and manufactures gaming controls has announced a new partnership with a technology company in Taiwan.

The first fruits of the collaboration between Heber and Taiwan’s Ganlot Inc will be the release of a range of gaming controllers, to be revealed at the ICE Totally Gaming conference in early February in London.

Les Ashton-Smith, managing director of Heber, said: “This collaboration with Portwell’s subsidiary Ganlot will bring together a breadth of skill and knowledge to enable the creation of fantastic next generation products for the gaming industry.

“Heber has been working with Portwell for years now on individual projects and has been very impressed with both their technical expertise and commitment to quality and service.”

The conference will also see Heber announcing Heber Gaming as the dedicated brand identity for the gaming area of its business.

Heber based at Belvedere Mill in Chalford, has been providing clients with specialist electronic design and manufacturing since 1984.
