About Us

how we started

Abbey Vending Services was started in Sheffield over 27 years ago by Norman Pidd in 1991. At the time, Norman already had over 15 years experience with the market leader of the time, GKN Sankey Vending Ltd.

From his time working for the market leader, Norman learned how important excellent customer service is, and now with his own company, he ensures this is provided to his customers. At Abbey Vending Services we are able to provide a more personal relationship with clients - something that the big companies just aren't able to do.

Norman’s daughter Gemma McCann joined the company in 2004 and now as company director, she drives the company with the same morals and integrity as her father. Abbey Vending Services has achieved an excellent reputation within the industry for quality, reliability and service and takes pride in everything they have achieved.

a family business

Over the years Abbey Vending has gone from strength to strength. We're not just able to provide a fully managed service to businesses and companies of all sizes, but we can do it whilst still maintaining a personal touch and level of care that only a family business can.

We take great pride in knowing our clients are satisfied and we achieve this by only using quality products, combined with a rapid response time for any issues that may arise.
