Elaut Grabs UDC as UK Distributor


The London based amusement games distributor UDC has been awarded exclusive distributorship of Elaut games for the UK market in order to provide sales and service for customers across the region.


UDC successfully introduced Elaut E-Claw crane games into the Middle East (MENA) market a decade ago as distributor for the region and continues to handle the games for the region.

UDC is also exclusive distributor of Benchmark Games equipment in the UK and has a long association with these products in multiple international markets. Since Elaut Group acquired Benchmark Games Inc. in 2017 the relationship between Elaut and UDC has grown ever closer. In addition, both companies are distributors for several third-party manufacturers in complementary markets. With such a close relationship between to two companies the appointment is seen as a logical progression for both parties.


The distributorship includes all parts of the Elaut Group which includes Elaut, Benchmark Games and Coast to Coast.



Mark Horwood, UDC Managing Director

“We were flattered by the approach by Elaut to handle their games in the UK market and relish the opportunity to work even more closely with them. This deal further cements the special relationship between both companies.“


Eric Verstraeten, Elaut Group CEO

“Team UDC has always been great to work with. We are looking forward to a wonderful cooperation in which we can serve our mutual customers - the players and arcade operators.”


Jonathan Lauder, UDC Sales Director

“Elaut makes a fantastic addition to our stable of high-income producing games. Elaut cranes in particular are seen as the gold standard by many in the industry.“
