The Azkoyen Group celebrates its 75th anniversary at its Peralta factory with a walk through its history

Azkoyen Group celebrated its 75th anniversary at an event held at its factory in Peralta (Navarra). The attendees enjoyed a guided tour of the premises and the museum, where they were able to see at first hand each of the machines and solutions that have been a part of the company’s history.

Afterwards, they all headed to the Casa de Cultura of the Navarrese town, where its chairman, Juan José Suárez, began the official ceremony with an overview of the 75 years of the Group, from its foundation in 1945 to the present day. The event was attended by the mayor of Peralta, Juan Carlos Castillo Ezpeleta.

Tribute was also paid to the daughters of the founder, Martín Luis Troyas, creator of Talleres Azkoyen, who received a trophy in memory of their father. Special recognition was also given to the strategic suppliers who have supported the company over the years and to all the employees who have been part of the group’s past and present, especially those with more than 40 years of service.

Juan José Suárez, chairman of the Azkoyen Group proudly said: “It has been many years since 1945, when the first Spanish vending machines were created. And since then, the company has grown into a large business group comprising more than 800 people, with a presence in more than 95 countries. Everything we have achieved is, without doubt, thanks to our valuable human capital

A day that reviewed the major launches and products that have marked these 75 years and that have undoubtedly left their mark on the sector and the region.

The event was affected by the capacity limitations set by the authorities, but these did not prevent the attendees from enjoying a unique day in the history of the Azkoyen Group. The event was also attended by seven members of the Azkoyen Group management board, as well as representatives from the Navarra company’s workforce.

The Azkoyen Group wins the award for best vending system supplier of the year for the sixth time

The Azkoyen Group, a leading Spanish technology multinational, which offers automated products and services designed to bring unique experiences to people in their daily lives, has received the NIVO Equipment Supplier (National Independent Vending Operators) award for the sixth time since 2013.

NIVO is one of the most important purchasing groups in the UK and this award recognises Coffetek, the Azkoyen trademark in Britain, as the best vending machine supplier of the year. Voting is carried out with the participation of more than 280 vending machine operators who are part of NIVO.

Juanje Alberdi, director of the Coffee & Vending Systems division, expressed his pride regarding this recognition: “The Azkoyen Group is very proud to have received this award for yet another year. It motivates us to keep working on helping to create unique consumer experiences with our coffee machines.
We have more than 75 years of experience developing technological innovations to adapt to the needs of our customers and end users. Examples include the patented Distance Selection technology, which is revolutionising the market by allowing drinks to be selected without touching the surface of the machine, and the recently patented MIA micro air injection technology, that
prepares a perfect, silky and consistent froth for a wide range of coffees and fresh milk drinks.”

The UK, a great ally for the company

The company has a strong presence in the UK, which is the location of one of the Azkoyen Group’s eight worldwide head offices, as well as one of the group’s three coffee machine factories.

And this is not the only award the company has received from the British vending industry. In previous years, the company has received the Vending Industry Awards “Vendies” as well as from the Associated Vending Services Limited (AVS) group, which operates more than 65,000 machines in the British market.

With these three awards, the Azkoyen Group continues its successful trajectory in the United Kingdom with its Coffetek brand. Technology has no borders and nor do people’s needs, which is why the Azkoyen Group is now present in 95 countries on five continents.

Azkoyen is working to distribute free PPE using its automatic machines

Azkoyen will be installing its automatic machines in the Eibar township (Gipuzkoa) to assist in the free distribution of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) by the local council to its citizens, with the aim of preventing the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

The distribution will be carried out in a safe and controlled manner thanks to the most advanced technology offered by the Azkoyen Palma+ and Mistral+ automatic machines. The Council of the Basque town of Eibar will issue a card to each citizen which they can use to obtain a maximum of two PPE per day via these automatic machines, which will be located at various points around the town.

Azkoyen will be expanding the installation of its Palma+ and Mistral+ models to industries, companies, commercial and public places, and other sectors to facilitate the distribution of masks, gloves, hydro-alcoholic gels or any other protective material that helps to avoid the contagion and spread of the virus. The latest technology of these machines allows them to limit the extraction by the user and within a certain period of time, something that provides the distributor with full control of the stock.

Azkoyen patents the Distance Selection technology which allows product selection in automatic machines without the need to touch any surfaces

Azkoyen has developed and patented Distance Selection technology for their automatic machines, which allows the user to obtain the products without having any contact with the surface of the machine, adding safety and hygiene to the purchasing process.

The mechanical push-button or touch-screen panels on vending machines, are now being replaced by new technologies that work remotely, such as the Distance Selection technology featured in Azkoyen Group machines. Thanks to this, the user can select the product they want from a distance of up to 2 centimetres from the surface of the selection panel as shown in this video .

The health and safety measure enabled by Distance Selection will improve consumer confidence in the use of vending machines, ideal for work and hospitality environments.

Changing the way we relate to the devices around us, such as vending machines, has become an indispensable step towards significantly reducing the risk of spreading bacteria and viruses such as Covid-19, which will be reflected in improved health for users.
