Excerpts taken from the “EXCALIBUR INNOVATIONS PRODUCT CATALOG”

Ron Nelson reported that in 1996/1997 he had just completed his line of 6805 processor games and the manufacturing was bid between Eric White’s & David Levy’s Hong Kong manufacturing company and another Hong Kong electronics company named Same Time Ltd., established in 1982. Same Time provided Excalibur a fantastic proposal and this launched the severance of Excalibur connections to Eric White and David Levy, thereby making Excalibur Electronics an independent developer of electronic games who contracted the manufacturing directly with Hong Kong production companies.

Excalibur “The Excalibur” was contracted for manufacturing by Excalibur Electronics to the EWIG Industries Hong Kong Office in Kowloon which is a subsidiary of EWIG Industries Macao Commercial Offshore Limited in Macau whose electronic manufacturing factory is situated in the Guangdong Province of China.
