GVS Assist expands Northern Operations

GVS Assist, a leading national supplier and maintainer of automated coffee, tea and snack machines, has opened up a new operations centre in Castleford.

Debbie Mann, Managing Director for GVS Assist, said: “We are committed to building on our core values and rich heritage as an industry leader. We remain driven to provide outstanding levels of customer service across the whole organisation and our quest for quality continues to be strong. The Castleford site will allow us to provide a vital base that can easily access any part of the UK to meet customer demand.”

GVS Assist was established in the 1920s as the UK arm of vending giant, Wittenborg. After gaining its independence in 1995 the company has become the UK’s leading provider in servicing for the industry.

GVS Assist has won several major contracts over the year, and the demand for business has necessitated the need for opening the new site. GVS already has two sites in Smallfield and Normanton, with the Castleford site being the latest acquisition. The company also currently supplies equipment servicing and maintenance for Marks and Spencer, Tesco and the NHS.

Bucking the national trend, GVS Assist has expanded significantly over the past year. Charlie Price, Marketing Executive for GVS Assist, told us: “Despite going through one of the most severe recessions in years, GVS Assist has gone from strength to strength. We are very proud to be opening the new site in Castleford. Strategically it is a very important area, both in terms of transport links and also for local employment.”
