J. Bos Vending Service is a family owned vending machine business that began in 1930.

In 1930 Jerry Bos’s father started his vending company as a candy and tobacco wholesaler in west Michigan.  Vending machines began gaining in popularity In the late 50’s and early 60’s.  As a result, the Bos family decided to make vending machine placement and servicing their core expertise.

J. Bos Vending Service is fortunate to have a great staff on board.

J. Bos Vending service has a staff with experience from 2 to 50 plus years of experience. Jerry Bos alone has 50 plus years of experience. Jerry, to this day remains very much involved in the business.  This amount of experience enables us to continue to serve our clients in a timely, efficient and professional manner.

Jerry as well as his son John share in the running of the business.

Jerry and John oversee the ordering of all inventory and John manages a staff of 12 route drivers to service over 600 locations in the West Michigan area.

J. Bos vending service has an in house maintenance staff.

All of the vending machines at our client locations are maintained by a full service staff. They travel every day to make repairs on the machines so the machines can stay up and running for our clients. We also have Henrik. He works closely with the service technicians to address any new installation or maintenance issues that may arise.

J. Bos is “Green” friendly!

Jerry keeps up with the latest technology and energy saving solutions to better serve our clients. After two years of research we are using Second Generation LED lights. These LED’s are very energy efficient. Jerry is also in charge of ordering parts, vending machines and related equipment. He prepares and inspects the machines slated for installation as well.

Should you need to reach any of our staff they are only a telephone call away to handle a service call, question or any concerns you may have.

Jerry’s wife Kathy, along with a staff of three, oversees all of the accounting functions of the business. They personally answer the telephone during business hours, so you are never weaving through an automated voice mail system.
