UK beverage machine manufacturer, N&W, is rebranding its free-standing Astro vending machine. Now available with a choice of Azzurro or Reflections graphic panels, the newly improved unit no longer has to rely on backlighting to entice users in, which cuts back on CO2 emissions.
N&W Sales and Marketing Director, Mike Kane, said: “At N&W, we're constantly looking for ways to care for the environment, and by introducing the new designs that look good without backlighting, we can reduce the amount of the energy used. Not only is this one of the fastest, most effective ways to save any business money, it will also help you combat climate change by reducing your carbon footprint.
“We don’t wish to preach, but if we can get businesses to look at improving energy efficiency, it has a positive impact all round. Using less energy will also improve a company’s reputation as a socially responsible business, and could help attract customers and employees. It just makes good business practice.”
The Astro’s existing backlit photographic panels had been in place for a number of years. By unveiling its new energy efficient designs, the firm is aiming to appeal to the discerning coffee consumer and keep on trend. The bold, blue design of the Azzurro offers a contemporary look, while the Reflections panel has a polished metallic feel, which is reminiscent of the traditional stainless steel coffee pot.
N&W Global Vending designs, manufactures and distributes vending machines in 80 countries worldwide through a network of selected dealers. Its Astro unit comes in a choice of eight models, including Espresso plus Freshbrew, Instant, Single Freshbrew and Triple Freshbrew, along with added cold drink options.
