Slovenian company marketing and selling ice vending machines is looking for distributors or vending operators for marketing and sale of vending machines. The company offers distribution services agreement.
Slovenian micro-enterprise is engaged in the sale of vending machines for production and sale of ice since 2011.
These are robotic devices which produce ice cubes of approx. 2 x 2 cm, and then deposited in the reservoir. The machine allows parameterisation of the minimum and maximum amounts of ice, which the customer can buy. The machine requires connection to electricity (220 V) and potable water and can be installed outdoors or indoors. But the machines can not be built into the wall as they need space for air-cooling system and need at least 0.5 m free space around the machine to function properly.
Thus ice produced is used to chill drinks or food, for caterings and picnics, for cooling injuries at sports events, etc. Most often, such machines are placed in camping sites, caravan parks, hotels, at petrol stations, etc.
The company provides 3 different types of ice vending machines, which differ by the amount of ice the machine can produce within 24 hours and by the quantity of ice that can be stored in the reservoir:
- Hotel: ice production of 30 kg/24h, storage bin 10 kg, size 0.64 m (W) x 0.45 m (D) x1.85 m (H)
- Manual 180: ice production of 180 kg/24h, storage bin 40 kg, size 1 m (W) x 0.94 m (D) x 2 m (H)
- Manual 300: ice production 300 kg/24h, storage bin 80 kg, size 1.2 m (W) x 1 m (D) x 2.4 m (H)
The machines are made in China but the company is from Taiwan.
The company is looking for distributors and vending operators in the Balkans countries (Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Bulgaria, Romania), Eastern Europe, Germany, Austria and Great Britain.
The company offers distribution services agreement.
- the selling process is based on the weight of the ice thrown out and not on time (most competitors have time frames for throwing ice out);
- parametrisation of the machine according to customers’ needs - competitors don't have so much settings to customize;
- machines are equipped with LCD display where customers can play games and watch commercial videos, etc. while waiting for the ice to be processed;
- the design of the machines can be customised by the customer itself;
- the company offers the smallest machine on the market in comparison with the competitors ones with the same production capacity of ice and storage bin;
- easy installation and maintenance of the machines.
The distributors are expected to have basic technical skills and know-how of vending machines.
The company is looking for business partners among SMEs that are already engaged in selling vending machines or to other companies interested in selling ice vending machines to vending operators and other customers (hotels, camps, petrol stations, stores, supermarkets, etc). The company offers distribution services agreement.
