Steven was one of the original founders of GEM Vending in 1984 and still today remains the back bone and strength that carry the company forward with our strong ‘family’ values.
Steven has worked successfully in just about every aspect of the vending industry in the UK and abroad. From during the sixties filling chocolate vending machines on the London Underground, machine design and development winning national awards, setting training and quality standards for the industry.
As MD, his company became the first vending firm in the world to achieve ISO 9002 qualification. Preparation of foods and the formulation of soft drinks products, all specifically for the vending trade. Steven has also held main board Directorships in a number of trade association bodies over a thirty year period and was also the instigator of one of the largest vending specific buying groups.
Steven’s policy for the company is:
”We put every member of The GEM Team first! Only by doing this can we keep achieving a better and better first class service for our customers. The proof is in the records as more than 50% of the GEM team have over ten years’ service with many with well over 20 years employment in the business. It is extremely rare for us ever to lose even one of our customers. I am so very proud of these facts as without great experienced people we would not be the best, day in day out”
