DALLAS -- SandenVendo America has added new sales personnel to its micromarket design group. Scott Winters has been promoted to sales director of the group, and Steve Meyer and David Lockrow have joined as sales managers.

"Scott's 26-year tenure with the company will provide this growing business unit with leadership and focus," said SandenVendo America vice-president of sales and marketing Mike Weisser.

In related news, SandenVendo America recently reorganized its sales and marketing department into four separate units managing sales in the vending, micromarket, foodservice and export segments. Weisser said that the decision was logical, given the growth enjoyed by all four categories over the past three years.

"The new organization will allow us to continue as experts in each category and provide focus to our new channels while reinforcing our core competencies," explained Weisser, a 20-year Vendo veteran.

The original Vendo Co. was established in 1937 as a manufacturer of bottled cold drink venders. It became a leader in the new full-line vending industry in the 1950s. The company expanded into foodservice equipment four decades later. Vendo was acquired by Sanden Holdings Corp. (Ikesaki, Japan) in 2005, and launched a line of display merchandisers for the micromarket segment in 2014.
