Member of the Week - Norscott Vending
Norscott Vending started trading January 1994, ‘25yrs ago’, initially as sole agent for Kenco. At this stage, David Newsham’s father, Charlie Newsham, was the company owner, his mother and wife worked the office and tele sales and Dave Newsham was the sole engineer. Norscott Vending soon employed an engineer based in Aberdeen (Davie), he is still with them now. Dave’s father sadly passed away in 2000 and he was thrown in the deep end. Dave said: “I think he would be proud of the way I have steered the company since, now completely independent and going strong”. Norscott Vending now have a team of 14 people.
We asked Dave why he would like Norscott Vending to feature as member of the week: “With it being our 25th anniversary, we felt it would be a great opportunity to raise our profile.”
Norscott Vending are not only a vending company, they sell / lease more countertop bean to cup hot drinks machines than vending machines these days. Fresh milk fully automated espresso machines are the in-thing right now, giving you a coffeeshop experience at the touch of a button, well, actually not buttons these days, they do touch screens, or build your drinks from your mobile phone so you don’t have to touch the machine at all.
Norscott Vending offer companies a fully operated service where we supply the machine, install it at your place of work and our trained staff operate the machine on your premises, taking the hassle out of providing your work force with refreshments letting you do what you do best, running your business.
We asked Dave about their business plans for over the next 12 months: “You always need to be looking at the latest technology, and ways to drive the company forward. You can never stand still.
We are investing in smart card payment technology at the moment, I’m trying not to think about the cost needed here, but cash will eventually become a thing of the past, so we need to push on with this.”
Norscott Vending services are pleased to offer a new pod coffee machine for offices / conference rooms. The L’or Lucente machine with 200 drinks for just £249.50
