We are truly excited to have been announced Winner – Best Operating Company (£2m – £5m turnover) at the UK’s top vending industry awards – The Vendies 2015.
The Vendies is the premier annual UK awards for the vending industry and recognises outstanding achievement in every field. We are incredibly happy to have been considered, and being announced overall winners at the glittering awards dinner in Manchester is a great accolade, for which we are extremely proud.
Organised by the Automatic Vending Association and Vending International, the awards are the finale of AVEX International – the biggest annual vending exhibition which brings together the best of the industry, large and small.
At every stage of the awards process our success was in the hands of the vending industry, so the peer recognition involved in winning these awards makes them very special indeed. An unprecedented number of votes were cast this year, and It was these votes, and the opinion of the highly respected industry colleagues on the judging panel that enabled us to win.
Of course, this is not our first success at The Vendies, we were recognised in 2013 when we were very delighted to be named in the top three vending operators in the UK. In addition, our very own Tricia Connolly was a finalist for Vending Supervisor of the Year on the same night, an individual award which she went on to win in 2014.
What makes all of these awards so pleasing is that they have to be earned, and they are judged by our peers. We are a business committed to customers service and winning this UK award is a well earned reflection of this core value. In addition, gaining the respect or our peers as well as the customers and suppliers who voted for us is the cherry on top.
Excel Vending’s Managing Director, Jane McDonald commented, “It’s thanks to our hardworking team at Excel that we’ve been able to offer such excellent service for the past 22 years. Without them we would not be able to do any of this. Winning such a prestigious award is an honour and true recognition for their hard work. We value the relationships we have built with clients, suppliers, and the team at Excel, this award is not only for them, but also thanks to them.”
From all at Excel Vending, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past two decades. Winning at The Vendies is a wonderful testament to the service you allow us to provide every day.
