Query by Ryudai: hunting for jidohanbaiki (Japanese vending machine) companies?
I’ve been searching all more than google for any leads on Japanese vending machines and to my surprise I discovered none, except for a name on the side of the newest style of Japanese vending machine by acure. Any person know of any of these businesses?
Answer by T S
In Japan the most of vending machines are produced by the bottling service firm, like Coca Cola, to be suited for every single bottle sizes. Of course they manufacture them in their related firms.
You can google “自動販売機 製造” (means “vending machines manufacture”), and Sanden is a popular firm in the searched, even so, most of them are modest and medium-sized enterprises.
