Sanritsu Denki Co., Ltd. (サンリツ電気株式会社) was a Japanese electronics company established in December 1973. It manufactured communications equipment and vending machines before expanding into amusement machines in February 1977. [1] After having spent the better part of the 1980s making original arcade video games like Appoooh and Bank Panic, the company focused on publishing and developing home games, including many done under contract with Sega. This relationship culminated in the creation of SIMS, a new developer formed in 1991 with investment from both companies. [2]

Sanritsu was later involved in ship radio manufacturing, selling remote monitoring systems, and electrical safety management. [3] The company survived into the new millennium and for several years had a website.
