According to the statement, each fully automated redbox kiosk holds 630 DVDs, representing up to 200 of the newest movie releases and allows consumers to use a touch screen to select their movies, swipe a valid credit or debit card and go. Consumers can also reserve DVDs online or via an iPhone and pick them up at the redbox location of their choice.
“This is an exciting day and we are delighted to host our key suppliers onsite at the Flextronics facility in celebration of our 25,000th kiosk,” said Mitch Lowe, president, redbox. “Flextronics is an important partner and their flexibility and responsiveness have greatly contributed to our ability to meet aggressive installation goals as demand for our low-cost DVD rental service has grown.”

Sykes, President of Flextronics Industrial. “As the leading manufacturer of self-service kiosks, we are honored to have helped enable redbox’s success in achieving its objectives through our supply chain optimization, design support and lean manufacturing services.”
