Apogee International Ltd

‘A quarter of a century in business!’

Hertfordshire based vending company Apogee International Ltd celebrates 25 years in the industry this month. In theory that’s a long time but anyone in the industry knows that people rarely leave once they’re in it! Something I personally realised when recently congratulated (via a LinkedIn alert how else in 2019) on my 10 years with the business!

In case any of you think 25 years isn’t that long ago, just think back to what 1994 was like…

In the cinema, Pulp Fiction, Four Weddings and a Funeral and the original Lion King were released. Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web and Yahoo was founded. Most people used dial-up online services like AOL where you paid for every minute you used – when it would work. There were no thumb drives or cloud storage. Instead, you backed up files on a floppy disk. Email was very expensive so in the office the fax machine was making that annoying screeching noise all day every day.

And finally there was no streaming or Netflix. In fact no DVDs either as they were introduced the following year. Instead you went to the video shop and hoped you didn’t get a copy that had been watched too many times and didn’t play properly

Vending however has been a constant throughout that time. The technology and look of the machines has developed considerably but the need has stayed the same. People have to eat and drink. And they have to work/go about daily life at the same time. The main difference is the non-food/promotional projects we now get involved in. The possibilities with these is endless.

“This is a significant milestone for any company” said ‘David Wood, CEO (known to many in the industry simply as ‘Woody’) we are proud to have been a consistent, trusted part of the industry for a quarter of a century. Thank you to everyone who has supported Apogee over the years. Many of whom have been by the company’s side since day one. These include all our major suppliers and all our customers. Special mentions to Brian Savage of TVS for not only his continuous service support but also the advice and encouragement and Peter Quinney of Quintus Systems for giving us that first lead to get started.”
