Our History

The Vitas History

Founded over 35 years ago by George Vitas, then service engineer with GKN Sankey, 

Vitas Vending have become widely respected for providing high quality, sensibly priced products backed up by the most knowledgeable and experienced service team in vending.

Originally working from his sister’s house, George quickly established himself as the leading supplier of vending services and equipment in Peterborough.
In 1982 Vitas Vending moved into our first offices and workshops at the local Breydon Centre, where the greater space and dedicated workshop enabled us to double in size almost overnight.
This marks the first appearance of the bright red Vitas Vending operators Van
Within a couple of years we had once again outgrown our premises, so in 1984 we began construction of one of the very first purpose built vending facilities in the UK – featuring a dedicated showroom (another first).
Our new premises helped us gain contracts with some of the best known companies in and around Peterborough.
Due to our continued success in 2000 Vitas Vending purchased 3 acres of land in the heart of Peterborough Industry and began construction of the Vitas Business Centre – our own privately owned business park and home to the new Vitas Vending HQ, one of the largest and most advanced vending facilities in the UK.
The Vitas Business Centre Opens
Officially opened by Mr. Richard Brinsley MD of UK manufacturer Westomatic Vending in 2004.
Our superb “purpose built” premises are probably the finest in vending. Featuring air-conditioning and computerized systems to all offices, showrooms and warehousing, and workshops equipped with the very latest facilities – the Vitas Vending Headquarters are the toast of the vending industry, and the envy of our competitors.
Vitas Vending continues to go from strength to strength and are the vending services provider of choice for thousands of clients. Our continued investment in resources, technology, training and innovation keeps us ahead of the game.
Our clients say they choose us due to the range of services we provide and continued reliability, everyone at Vitas Vending takes pride in our history and help to shape our future.
