Cema Vending, the Nottingham-based vending machine and workplace refreshment specialist, has secured three major contracts
Cema Vending has landed deals with Castle Donington-based Mi Hub (which has added to their existing support package), the specialist science and technology academy NUAST and maintaining the education theme, Findel, which is based on the same trading estate as Cema Vending at Victoria Business Park.
All three businesses were seeking Covid-conscious solutions blended with the latest technology to support their changing refreshment needs, with Mi Hub adding infra-red operated water coolers to their existing vending contract, whilst NUAST required a refreshment solution for its 6th form unit.
NUAST also selected biometric solutions for its fully branded Nescafe coffee solution, cold drinks and a food carousel, all of which are operated by the students’ fingerprints and linked back into their system so that purchases are deducted from students’ account balances.Meanwhile, Findel has installed a temporary vending solution to replace the canteen facility at its 400,000 sq ft distribution centre, which has seen reduced usage due to the lockdowns.
“As part of overhauling and expanding our people’s welfare proposition, largely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we turned to Cema Vending for their expertise in both vending supply and interior concepts”, Findel’s QHSE manager, Chris Leonard, said “We have now aligned all our related business to them and consider Cema to be a key infrastructure partner for our distribution centre.”
Cema Vending GM, Ian Perry, said: “It’s been a very encouraging start to the year, with many businesses implementing plans to adapt their catering facilities due to the impact of Covid. The pandemic has brought plans for a more flexible approach forward a few years, and having solutions in place that do not require human resources is particularly important right now
“Our work with Findel is a case in point here, it is all about flexibility for the modern workplace”, Ian said. “We installed vending machines which can accept either cash or card payments that are Covid-secure. Findel also plans to revamp its old canteen into a new relaxation and rest area, which is more conducive to the workplace of the future. We’re looking forward to working with them on that project.”
