Incorporated in the State of Hawaii in 1992, we believe The Acme Vending Corporation to be a "right sized" organization. We are large enough to commit the capital for a fleet of the finest state of the art vending equipment available in Hawaii. Further, we have a large enough organizational chart and depth of management so as to provide incomparable and uninterrupted service to our clients. All that said, we remain small enough for the owner to be personally involved in the installation, management, and accountability of each and every one of our locations.
The Acme Vending Corporation is the sole and singular licensed distributor for Crane Merchandising Crane-GPL vending machines and equipment in Hawaii. Our equipment is state of the art. We are factory trained to support and service this increasingly technologically sophisticated equipment. This is the equipment we utilize on the operating side of our organization. We sell, lease, and or service the same for other vending operators on the island as well.
In contrast to the majority of vending operators on the island, it is ourselves, neither Coke nor Pepsi, who owns the equipment we merchandise our cold drink assortment from. By virtue of this, we are able to offer Coke and Pepsi products in the same machine. Further, we are able to offer cold drinks in 12 Oz. can packages as well as 20 or 24 Oz bottle packages from these same machines. This provides the consumer with the choice she wants and the owner of the facility where equipment is placed with the savings she needs on floor space and electricity. Further to this, we offer products from the smaller independent beverage producers in Hawaii. These products include but are not limited to Aloha Maid, Hawaiian Sun, and Itoen. We provide niche products such as Arizona Ice Tea, Monster, and Tropicana juice products as well.
Our vending equipment can be found in School, Government, Community, Business, Retail, and Industrial locations. Because of our position in the wellness community, we are the single source vendor for all of the YMCA's in Oahu. Our corporate clients include but are not limited to BANKOH, (The Bank of Hawaii), and HECO, (The Hawaiian Electric Company).
We are a full line vendor, offering food and snack food in refrigerated and/or frozen food machines. We have coffee machines and ice cream vendors as well.
Howard Merl, the founder of the organization, continues to be the managing director. Apart from his role at the Acme, he remains a licensed Architect in the State of Hawaii.
