Vending Solutions started with little more than an idea but with sound knowledge of the vending industry. Graeme Keshwar CEO of Vending Solutions started his vending career during his student years in the USA working for a Pepsi bottler, filling vending machines. This is where he first recognised the potential in the vending industry, and in particular, the demand for vending machines in the corporate and industrial sectors.
After many years working for a leading South African vending company as National Sales Manager, and with the advent of democracy in 1994, Graeme started Vending Solutions as one of the very first black owned vending companies within South Africa. This move soon paid off, with the company showing tremendous growth ever since.
Today Vending Solutions operates nationally from its head office in Sandton, and has established itself as the largest black owned vending machine business in South Africa. We have extensive experience, sound business skills and a high level of service excellence. By embracing technology and the constant training of its people Vending Solutions as established itself as and industry leader.
