About Abercromby Vending Ltd
Abercromby Vending is a family owned business established in 2005 to service a gap in the vending dispensing market. The rationale behind Abercromby Vending was simple: to merge the talents of a caterer and vending engineer to form Scotland’s first and exclusive fresh food vending company.
- All their food vendors stock at least 40% of healthy products
- Now over 600 vending machines
- Operating from a purpose built food manufacturing plant in Arrol Road, Glasgow
- Recently completed a full instillation of 49 machines into Glasgow Airport with full chip & pin debit card facilities available on all the machines
Abercromby Vending Ltd has witnessed continuous growth with large sections of their commissions coming from companies wishing to replace what’s traditionally known as the works canteen with Abercromby’s vending suites.
In 2012 the company won a contract to supply machines selling hot drinks in the Commonwealth Arena in the city for a four-year term.
