Who We Are
It all began back in the early eighties when Paul had hair and his new eye-catching exhibition stands took the circuit by storm. Whilst enjoying the fruits that exhibitions brought, the vending industry meanwhile, was looking at ways to up their game. Conversations took place with vending operators of the time, many of whom have become lifelong friends, which identified a growing need for vending surrounds. Paul’s expertise in steelwork and manufacturing naturally led to producing some of the first vending surrounds in the UK.
The company grew further, and it became evident that outsourcing design and manufacturing couldn’t be sustained. Paul wanted to stay true to what drove him in the early days – quality, bespoke furniture with great customer service. So when the opportunity arose to buy a factory, it was a no-brainer.
#1 Vending Surround
Working across the exhibition and vending sectors proved advantageous. Paul knew the best-suited materials and manufacturing processes for delivering high-quality projects. Add the lessons learned from the Design and Installation of interiors, and the company started to produce cutting edge award-winning exhibition displays and the Operandi vending surround, which is still the go-to vending surround system now.
Today Tom, Paul’s son, manages an in-house team of Project Coordinators, Designers, Joiners, Installers and Logistics. Tom’s background in sustainable construction and joinery has enabled Nebrak to cultivate a forward-thinking fresh approach to fulfilling the client briefs.
Nebrak continues to work with the top UK vending operators, catering facilities management organisations and food and beverage brands delivering the best in Vending and commercial Catering Interiors. Their expertise in exhibitions has taken them further afield to Asia, with global leisure brand Madame Tussauds and Europe, where they deliver immersive stands at leading trade exhibitions.
Award-winning Micro markets and Vending Furniture
The growth of unattended retail experiences in the workplace has enabled Nebrak to showcase its talents in the manufacture of Micro markets. Having been there from the birth of the micro-market concept, we know the process from start to finish.
We’ve adapted, and continue to identify changing needs and demands, whilst developing and improving manufacturing and installation methods. Working closely with clients and always looking at how to innovate has facilitated and produced some exciting new automated retail and vending concepts.
July 2022 saw Nebrak win the AVS Micro Market Service Award for a second time, cementing our place as leaders in delivering unattended retail furniture solutions. Nebrak also scooped Best Vending Project at the Vendies 2022 and a Best Service supplier award from NIVO.
New Vending Concepts
The pandemic has been a catalyst for vending and unattended retail. Advances in touchless technologies, payment systems and consumer behaviour have presented many opportunities. One solution we have designed for the changing workplace is the Refreshment Destination.
2022 saw us launch four new models, The Original, Integra, Classy and Elite. Each with equipment configurations to suit all demands. The concept has been further developed to incorporate clients’ out-of-home (OOH) media screens and point-of-sale technologies.
