The Wittern Group

Wittern GroupThe Wittern Group, is a vending machine U.S. manufacturer that has been in operation for over 80 years. Staying ahead of the curve, The Wittern Group is expanding research development in an effort to bring new innovative vending technology to the market. Heidi Chico, is the co-owner and CEO, said new “controlled dispensing solutions” are being sought by a variety of industries, from healthcare to retail to maintenance and repair.

“We’re breaking the barriers and moving on to bigger and better markets,” she said. “For that we need to sort of reinvest in the future and make machines smarter.”

The City Council voted unanimously to be a sponsor organization for the company’s application. Which doesn’t necessitate a financial counterpart from the city.

Chico said the company will still design and manufacture traditional food/beverage retail vending machines. However, there is a demand by some businesses who are looking to manage cost control and inventory, something The Wittern Group has built into many of their vending units.

Office Vending Machine

Office Vending MachineAn office vending machine is an excellent way to keep employees stocked with the supplies they need to do their job. It is also more convenient for the employees to walk over to a machine swipe a card and remove the supplies they need, in place of walking to the supply room and searching for the supplies, which can sometimes be in a messy room and could take a good amount of time to find, hence loss of productivity. The office vending machine also cuts back on shrinkage – no more stealing pens, paper, rubber bands, or any other type of office supply.
