Atari jukebox

In September 1974 Atari acquired a 50% stake in the French company Socodimex. With this money Socodimex bought the manufacturing facility of defunct company Electro-Kicker (manufacturer of the Jupiter jukeboxes) from the French government. This facility was based in Baumes-les-Dames, France. Under the name “Atari Europe” six jukeboxes were produced and distributed to several European countries. In 1976 Atari sold its stake in the manufacturing facility and as a result the trademark “Atari Europe” could not be used anymore and was changed to “Europe Electronique SA”. The Atari branded jukeboxes were sold until the beginning of the eighties. Socodimex continued to be the distributor of Atari arcade games in France.

These jukeboxes were released under the Atari Europe brand:
1976: Conecerto 120, Rubis, Rubis II
1977: Hit-Parade 108, Hit-Parade 144, Hit-Parade 160 is the proud owner of the Rubis II Jukebox:
