Our Story

Every business has a beginning, PWs was started in our founders head when he was just a little wizard. From the time he could remember, Gerald Kirchner was immersed into the world of pinball. He recalls a trip to the local mini market, where he and his brother Charlie would take him, “He lifted me up to this machine and I was mezermermised. I got to hit the buttons, that made the flippers go! I don’t even remember if I could reach both sides, but it was so exhilarating! I fell in love with pinball that day and I have never looked back.”
