INNOVATIVE VENDING MADE IN RAIDWANGEN
We are a family company founded in 1969. Our goal was, and remains, to continue improving our hot drink machines. We always focus on the needs of the machine operators as well as on the individual desires of the users. Following this tradition, Gerhardt develops innovative product lines which set new standards for modern coffee systems.
Our employees are an important part of our success. Many of them have been part of the Gerhardt family for years and ensure that we meet our high quality standards. We provide competent, comprehensive support in the acquisition and distribution of vending machines and are on hand to help with professional customer service for repairs and maintenance.
TRADITION AND INNOVATION STAY IN THE FAMILY
In 1965, Jakob Gerhardt began working as a freelance sales representative for coffee machines. He founded his own specialist wholesaler in the Swabian town of Bempflingen in 1969. Working with various types of machines every day, he quickly became an expert in their strengths and weaknesses. He came up with his own ideas and solutions to produce improved hot drinks machines. It was not until 1994 that his efforts first bore fruit. The first original Gerhardt hot drinks machine, which differed significantly from previous machines in both function and design, was ready for launch.
He then continued enhancing the machines with his team and adapted the range of products to consumer needs. In 2004, Jakob Gerhardt handed over the company to his two sons, who have successfully continued the combination of tradition and innovation, with the company now employing over 40 employees.
