PRODUCTION

The production department is the heart of our company, where we create our innovative products to be tested and then placed on the market.

Our workers work in compliance with health and safety regulations, to ensure that the entire environment is as safe as possible, with respect to human rights, and endeavouring to provide the best conditions within the workplace.

Production - 1

Production - 2

Production is divided into various departments, to manage work more efficiently, and to keep the whole production flow under control: from the cutting and bending sheet metal department, through to welding, painting, foaming and quality control, where the products are subjected to testing, and of course the production line, pre-assembly and assembly.

The cooling system that is added to all distributors is assembled in production with components, some of which come directly from the headquarters in Japan, the flagship of SandenVendo.


R&D

The Research and Development Office is responsible for researching and developing innovative new solutions that will then be applied to the industrialization of the vending machines.

The R&D offices work closely with the production department maintaining a continuous exchange of ideas and information with the production staff.

The R&D department staff use advanced software designing machines and technical components and work with the highest commitment to continuously improve the products that SandenVendo offers its customers.

Research and Development

Sanden, sustainable manufacturing.
The Sanden Corporation in Japan, the headquarters of SandenVendo, is a machinery manufacturer supplying products for the Automotive, Vending and Living & Environment Business sectors.

Under its Management Policy: “to create corporate values for the environment”, the company is working on harmonizing environmental preservation and business activity whilst setting the environment as a core business objective.

Some of the environmentally friendly products developed by Sanden are:

  • – Eco-Cute (Domestic-use Heat Pump with CO2 compressor), a CFC free heat pump for vending machines with LED illumination, an automotive air-conditioning system which provides low energy consumption.
  • – The company utilizes its unique product environmental index in order to visualize the environmental performance of its products.

The company is also working on evaluating and analyzing the environmental burden from the material procurement stage to distribution, consumption and disposal stage of its products.

In particular Sanden is working on the conservation of biodiversity. The company established “The Sanden Forest/Akagi Plant” in 2002, a complex of manufacturing and forest areas located on the southern slopes of Mount Akagi in Gunma prefecture, Japan.

This site, established with the concept of developing “a factory for the 21st century in harmony with nature”, introduced a large-scale, close-to-nature construction method for the first time as a private company which secures harmony and continuity with the surrounding environment. The company contributes to the conservation of the area through the protection of rare species. The company also utilizes the site by providing an area for natural environment experiences in cooperation with non-profit organizations.

In 2011, Sanden Corporation was recognised by The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as one of the seven best practice companies in the world for “Sustainable Manufacturing”. In October 2012, the company participated the 11th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties held in India where it introduced its activities for sustainable manufacturing as well as activities carried out in the Sanden Forest/Akagi Plant.
