So where has this wealth of experience come from? …

From 1963 – 1979 the AMF pinspotter factory was based in Whitstable, Kent. The technical manager at AMF was Donald Munnings.

Donald’s sons, Stuart and Richard, grew up around bowling and with such a technically minded father, they absorbed much of their father’s know how. In 1984 Stuart and Richard launched the Embassy Services company.

Bowling Vision Service Centre

During this time Embassy Services worked closely with Bowling Vision. Partnering together on projects and calling on each other to support the independent centres they were working with. As friends and colleagues, it became the next natural evolution to draw Embassy Services to sit within Bowling Vision. So, on March 27th 2013 the team at Embassy became part of Bowling Vision, a partnership which has proved beneficial and successful.

Today as we see the shift in technology move towards string bowling equipment and augmented reality our service centre is continuing to evolve with new tools, equipment and skills. If there is a technical service within your bowling centre that you would like to outsource, please get in touch.
