Cost-saving model can be customized with all the bells and whistles

Bensalem, Penn-based TC Millwork is trying to make it difficult for any casino to justify having outdated slot bases on their floor.

The company said it has engineered the most sensibly priced slot base on the market, while improving the quality of its top-of-the-line product, the ErgoBase.

“We call our base the Hybrid for several reasons,” said company owner Art Kubach. “First and foremost, it is the first slot base to have the stability of a metal-structured interior with the option to have a wooden exterior. We also like to think of this Hybrid as a standard model that can be customized completely to have all the bells and whistles that any designer can conjure up. We also like to joke with the casinos and define the Hybrid as a half and half on the sales side…half of the sale is to the GM because of the low price and the other half is to the slot techs because of the ease of usage.”

Kubach said the company’s patent-pending, knock-down Hybrid design boasts several improvements over its patented ErgoBase. “Much of the cost savings are in the price of the Hybrid itself. However, there are other savings that occur in shipping, installation and storage,” he said. “To put it simply, if there was a way that you could purchase a brand new Mercedes for the price of a used Hyundai, would you do it? Of course you would.” Kubach also noted that the low price of the new base comes at a good time, given the state of the economy.

“We had been working on improvements to our ErgoBase for over a year now and we just happened to finalize everything when the industry needed it the most,” Kubach “The fact that this is the first time in 15 years that we are selling direct is also a reason that we can offer lower prices.”
