Tamtex Corporation (株式会社タムテックス) was established on April 1, 1986 [1], by Osaka-based Irem to expand its product development department and strengthen its base in Tokyo. (Game Machine 1986/6/1, pg. 4) Tamtex was later merged into Irem and became Irem's Tokyo development division. [2] It was closed as part of Irem's restructuring in 1994. [3]
