EVA Member N&W to further strengthen range of hot drinks machines.

EVA Member N&W, a leading manufacturer of coffee, cold beverage and food vending machines, has announced that it has acquired Ducale.

Ducale has a long established history as an innovative manufacturer of coffee and vending machines and is known for the high quality of the beverages dispensed by its coffee machines and for its original hi-tech solutions offering an outstanding user experience.

With this acquisition, N&W intends to strengthen its competitive position by increasing its current ranges of hot drink vending machines – which already include leading brands such as Necta, Saeco and Wittenborg – with models from the Ducale range.

N&W's goal is to further develop Ducale, keeping at the head of the company the current CEOs Pietro and Stefano Sandei, and enhancing both the brand and the manufacturing site in Parma.

“The acquisition of Ducale, which follows on from the recent integration of Saeco Vending & Professional business, further supports our strategy aimed at consolidating brands which are well-known for the quality of their products. We are thus continuing on our growth path which allowed us to become a world leader at delivering the highest quality coffee experience out of home”, said Andrea Zocchi, CEO of N&W. “We believe that the different innovative technologies developed by Ducale’s R&D unit represent a highly distinctive element and will allow us to take advantage of new important opportunities, including in international markets.”
