Bob Stead Joins Aalberts Dispense Technologies

Aalberts Dispense Technologies are proud to announce that Aalberts dispense technologies has established a local presence in the UK, with the appointment of Bob Stead. In his new role, Bob will support, develop, and grow the DSI, Taprite, and Vin Service brands in the UK market.

Bob brings almost 40 years of business development, manufacturing, and remanufacturing experience from his previous roles at Renold PLC, Smart Technology Group Ltd, and England Worthside Ltd (EWL), as well as his own business. In his most recent role, Bob was the Business Development Director for EWL, who provided equipment supply chain management, manufacturing, and refurbishment services for the beer, soft drinks, vending, and water markets. After EWL entered administration in May 2020, dispense technologies made the decision to employ Bob directly.

Björn van den Bogaard, CCO of Aalberts dispense technologies says, “We believe it is important to have a local presence in the UK market. The UK beverage market is one of our focus markets and we believe a local presence is key to serve the market in an even better way. We worked closely with Bob through new projects when he was with EWL. He has a wealth of knowledge and expertise, so we are thrilled to have him join the team and look forward to future successful developments within the UK.”

Bob will now further support the UK market with improved customer relations as well as coordinate new opportunities for both customers and dispense technologies alike.

Bob says, “I’m delighted that this fantastic opportunity has arisen from what had been difficult circumstances. I already feel part of a very dynamic, close-knit team and it’s exciting to join dispense technologies at a time when the company has ambitious growth plans for the UK.”
