We regret to inform you of the passing of Roger Williams, Managing Director of Coinadrink Ltd, on Thursday 3rd March.

Roger was one of the founding fathers of the EVA and contributed for many years as both treasurer and President to the reputation of our organisation. We will always be thankful for all the energy and time he invested to make our industry more innovative and future-oriented. Over the last 60 years at Coinadrink he demonstrated several times his ability to adapt his business to the changing consumer needs, never being afraid of trying new things and looking at best practices in the industry around the world. We lose a great supporter of our industry, a forward-thinking entrepreneur, a friend and a truly inspiring man. He was proud to see his beloved Coinadrink celebrate 60 years in business during February and will be missed dearly by family, friends and the wider vending industry.


The thoughts of the EVA are with his family at this difficult time.
