Coinopsolutions is the result of collaboration between Mark Robins and Lindsay Clark after they came across a business opportunity in 1999 to purchase a crane machine at the back of a 24 hour take away shop in Perth. It quickly became evident that the machine performed consistently and that the payback expectations were realistic and more machines were purchased and business started to flourish.
In 2001 CoinOpSolutions was formally established as was the strong association with the Taiwanese machine supplier and securing exclusivity for Australia which still exists today.
In 2006 Mark moved to Melbourne, CoinOpSolutions soon became a dominant supplier of crane machines to the amusement machine industry and at the same time pursued national crane machine service contracts with the major shopping centre groups.
In 2008 Michael Jarjoura joined CoinOpSolutions and with his commercial expertise has been instrumental in achieving long term national contracts with the major shopping centre groups and listed industrial groups. CoinOpSolutions now operates over 800 crane machines across Australia, located in secure high profile locations.
In 2009 Koalakrane was founded in Australia emulating the successful Kiwikrane crane franchise business model in New Zealand. CoinOpSolutions infrastructure and national presence was able to swiftly support and assist in establishing the Koalakrane franchise business.
In 2010 CoinOpSolutions expanded into sourcing their own products for the machines and through signing of substantial supply agreements made the desirability of the business increase substantially.
In 2011 the Prize Depot machine was developed to meet the requests of various shopping centre groups and has proven very successful.
In 2012 a new ERP system was implemented to streamline operations and to separate the business disciplines to allow greater focus on the various segments of Retail and Wholesale.
In 2013 the ‘World First’ Iron Claw machines was launched ‐ suitable for outside locations, this machine took 2 years of development and offers the flexibility of locations not available previously.
In 2014 CoinOpSolutions purchased a 50% share in Koalakrane and took over day to day management responsibilities for the Franchise. This now elevated CoinOpSolutions to having over 2200 crane machines under its umbrella.
In 2015 CoinOpsolutions became the preferred supplier to Ardent Leisure filling their crane machines nationally
With national distribution and operations, CoinOpSolutions is the preferred supplier/operator to several leisure businesses, Hotel/Pub chains and many major Shopping Centres.
