This week marks the Strong Vend website’s first birthday.

Reaching the year mark seems like the perfect opportunity to remind ourselves of the past and also look forward to the future.Since the big launch a whole twelve months ago, the site has undergone some exciting changes to make sure it’s as user-friendly and engaging for our clients as we planned it to be.

The website was put together by award winning London web design agency Cyber-Duck who came up with the initial user-centric layout, created and built fantastic and unique flash banners and introduced state-of-the-art 3D imagery of each bean to cup coffee machine.Since the initial launch, Cyber-Duck has also helped us to convey the message about the impact we have on the environment and the way we source our raw materials by introducing dedicated pages featuring our recycled products and our Fair Trade partners.

Visitors to the site are able to see how being ecologically conscious can have huge benefits – financially, ethically and domestically.We’ve had some fantastic feedback from our customers, many of whom have been with us since the beginning, thirty years ago! The site has also helped us to considerably grow our client-base, reaching a brand new market of web-savvy coffee-lovers and facility managers alike.The site will be undergoing changes in the coming months – be sure to look out for our brand new calculator on how much a Strong Vend machine could save the average employee in pounds per year (all those visits to Starbucks adds up fast). Bosses will even be able to work out how much one of our machines could save the whole company.
