‘The Vending People’: Montagu Group Announces New Brand

Montagu Group Limited has announced that ‘The Vending People’ will be the new brand for its vending division, which the group says is ‘the UK’s largest independent vending company with over 200 operators and 50 engineers supporting 9000 operated vending machines nationally’.

The Vending People is the new trading name for the following companies: West Country Vending Service Limited (including the South Wales Vending trading name), LTT Vending Ltd, Cambridge Vending Limited and Espresso Plus Limited (previously trading as Snacktime Vending). The companies are all subsidiaries of Montagu Group Limited which also owns Expresso Plus, Snack in the Box and Tavern Snacks.
