History[edit | edit source]
It all started with a small company named Semco which manufactured wooden fishing tackle boxes in 1954. Over the years with changing times and various markets opening up for the company, Semco expanded and adapted to different niches that were available to our capabilities and resources. Through the 60's and mid 70's Semco produced store displays for Disney, Circuit City, Sears, Kraco Radio, JD industries, and Complete Warehouse Video showroom displays.
In the 80's the video game era came to a peak and Semco acquired PVG (Pacific Video Games) and started producing arcade cabinets for companies like Gremlin/Sega's Frogger, Star Trek, and Zaxxon, Wedges/Ledges, Lealand's Dragon's Lair and Super Off Road arcade video games cabinets, Indian Gaming Reservation Slot machines, Video Poker machines, Capcom's Street Fighter arcade video game cabinets, and Sega Gameworks Custom Classic Cabinets and Custom Arcade cabinets.
As of June 2009, the official website was "down for maintenance".
In December 2007, Capcom Games filed a federal lawsuit for copyright and trademark infringement against Hanaho Games and its President Conway Ho.
