GLI Plans to Expand Lab in Asia

28 October 2008

Gaming Laboratories International announced yesterday plans to expand its lab in Macau.

The global company that tests electronic gaming equipment said it has been “continuously pressed by requests from regulators and manufacturers” to grow its office in Asia. The multi-phased expansion will move the current office to a 3,000 square foot testing facility in China Civil Plaza and will establish a testing lab by the end of 2008.

In addition, the company said it has entered into a cooperative agreement with the Macao Polytechnic Institute.

“We are extremely excited to be the first gaming test lab to establish a fully operational lab in Asia to serve the emerging regulated gaming markets in the region,” said James R. Maida, president and co-founder of GLI. “The Macau lab’s mission will be to continue to provide real-time and local support to Asian regulators.”

Larry Xiao has been appointed general manager of Gaming Laboratories International Asia and will be overseeing the expansion.
