Our company history:
TreasureCove, is a
home-based business located in Jeffersonville,
Indiana, just 5 minutes north of Louisville,
Kentucky. The TreasureCove team is made up of
myself, Allen Shope, my brother Ray, and my sons
Kevin and Brian. Together, we do all the pinball
restorations in our shop (our two car garage).
Allen. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering,
and have been involved in the Electronics Industry
since 1971 when I got out of the Marines. In 1984 I
opened my own Personal Computer Store in Arizona,
and at one point had over 100 employees. I always
enjoyed handling the advertising, marketing and
sales of the machines, and because of that, became
proficient using CorelDraw and PhotoPaint. I also
restored Bingo machines as a hobby and my first
flipper game I restored was a "Nipit". In 1998, a
divorce caused me to move back to my hometown here
in Southern Indiana and start fresh. For me
to start doing restorations full time was a
"natural" - and my sons and I work very
Kevin managed all the purchasing chores, accounting
and technical service back at our computer stores in
Arizona and has
an extraordinary business sense. He also has an
uncanny knack for finding "a better way" to
accomplish just about any task!
Brian managed our
internet service, back in Arizona, and, as
such, is knowledgeable in "all things internet". For
everything from Website management, to C++
programming to Adobe Illustrator - Brian is the man!
Not only does Brian enjoy restoring the machines,
.... but he also seems to "just love" playing them
as well! ;)

We take our time restoring each pinball
machine and our main criteria is that we restore
each game as if we were going to keep it ourselves!
Ray and I got "hooked on pinball" back in 1977 when
we restored a Bally Beach Club Bingo machine.
Needless to say, we've been restoring games and
enjoying this business ever since. Ray also has
porcelain advertising signs at Treasureray.
