On April 1, 1984 Vend West was incorporated when I, Lou Leberti, purchased Automatic Sales from Warren Kolen. Mr. Kolen started his career in the vending business in 1954 and I went to work for him in 1964.
Automatic sales was a well established business as we at Vend West strive to continue the tradition of supplying nationally known brand products and excellent service to our customers from Florence to Gold Beach on the Southern Oregon Coast.
Vend West Services currently employs sixteen dedicated people. These sixteen employees have a combined 230 years of experience working as management, office staff, and route drivers. The longevity speaks for itself when it comes to the loyalty of our employees to Vend West and the customers that we serve.
Vend West Services strives every day to provide our customers with prompt, efficient service. This is why ‘service’ is part of our business’ name.
As always, I welcome any suggestions that anyone might have that could enable us to serve our customers even better.
