Hamden printer and software maker TransAct Technologies Inc. said Monday it has inked a deal with an international gaming equipment distributor that will sell its products in the lucrative Asian market.

Asia Pioneer Entertainment Limited will become a non-exclusive distributor of TransAct's core gaming device ticket printers as well as the company's lineup of gaming device and kiosk printers for the global casino and gaming industries.

As part of the deal, APE will distribute TransAct's printers throughout Asia, with a focus on Macau, the Philippines, Taiwan and China.

Terms of the agreement weren't disclosed.

"TransAct's printers are market leaders and we are excited to serve as a distributor of these devices across our broad range of customers in Macau, a base of operators that includes some of the largest in the marketplace," said Allen Huie, chairman of Asia Pioneer Entertainment.

Asia Pioneer Entertainment will also become a certified regional repair center for all of TransAct's printer products under warranty throughout the Asia Pacific region. APE also recently moved into a new 18,000-square-foot facility with an integrated workshop/office and warehousing that already serves as a large equipment repair base for the Macau gaming market.
