The Borgata in Atlantic City, USA

When The Borgata, a spectacular 2.010-room resort and casino, makes its debut next summer on Atlantic City's glittering shore, it will be the first new resort there in over 13 years and the largest hotel property in the market to date. The $1 billion property is currently under construction on a massive 30-acre site at Renaissance Point, a revitalized area of development adjacent to the world-famous Boardwalk. Plans for this 40-story development include 2.010 guest rooms, approximately 120.000 square feet of gaming space, several specialty restaurants and distinct boutiques, a European-style spa and an array of entertainment venues.

According to Peter Finamore, Vice President of Hospitality for The Borgata, the management team selected Elsafe electronic safes after an exhaustive search of all the in-room safe suppliers. Elsafe’s 23 years of experience in the hospitality security industry, including gaming, was a primary factor in the selection process.

"The current trend in the industry is to form strategic alliances and partnerships with key suppliers," said Finamore. "Elsafe’s longstanding reputation in the industry, as well as their advanced product portfolio, put them in an ideal position to be chosen as a security partner for this high profile project. With by far the most high-volume installations and the proven ability to deliver parts and provide reliable tech support in the field, Elsafe was a natural choice. During the selection process, I was surprised to find that many safe suppliers are actually third party distributors that procure safes manufactured by factories in China or Mexico. If a manufacturer goes under, that leaves the hotel without much recourse. Elsafe is the only safe supplier that is in complete control of the process, from R&D, design, manufacturing and distribution, with local sales and support. That was a very attractive feature to Borgata management."
