CORONA, CA -- AVT Inc. has reported that it will supply product-dispensing machines to two major partners who have obtained a $100 million contract from the New York City school system.

According to founder Shannon Illingworth, AVT is the preferred vendor in this contract, and the technologies it brings to the marketplace give it a significant competitive edge.

Illingworth predicts that the AVT venders will generate more money per machine than previous venders. The new technology incorporated in the venders, including a remote monitoring system that streams information back to the operator, "is the foundation of our ability to grow," he emphasized.

Plans call for the placement of nearly 500 units in the first quarter of 2010, which makes the transaction the largest traditional vending order ever placed with AVT. The contract was obtained by Canteen Vending (Compton, CA) and Answer Vending (Farmingdale, NY). In October 2009, it was reported that independent operators would replace Snapple in NYC schools under stringent new nutrition guidelines. Read more here.
