Few would argue that 2009 was a difficult year for the UK Automatic Vending industry but early signs suggest that the market is slowly emerging from the malaise of the last 2 years.
David Pattison author of the 2010 Plimsoll Analysis explains, “The recession tore through the market in 08 and most 09 like a tornado and accelerated the rate of change in the market. Aggressive ‘growth at all cost’ operators have been forced to abandon their reckless strategies and many have been caught out and are in real trouble. However, some amazing companies have come through the recession largely unaffected and look set to make 2010 their year.”
