Umbrella Arcades was founded in 2020 by Paul Renzi, after the production of the first wall mounted arcade cabinet prototype. What started as a DIY COVID project generated enough interest that we decided to offer an improved version to anyone who loves modern design and retro gaming.
We've continued to improve the product and our production methods as we try to keep up with orders. All of the production is done here in the US. Our goal is to continue to do so, even as we scale up production.
Our sheet metal shop in PA builds our steel frames, and is staffed by a master sheet metal mechanic and several certified welders. Paul directly handles all of the pre and post process, from setting up and configuring the software and hardware, to the installation of components, and final testing prior to shipping.
