History

We’ve been game-changers since the beginning. It all started more than three decades ago, when founder Kent Savage began a series of groundbreaking inventions in automated dispensing that still are in use today. In 1991, following a long and successful career in the traditional vending industry, he first introduced the concept of industrial vending. He began Apex in 2006 to bring robust, revolutionary point-of-work automation systems and cloud-based, Connect n’ Go Technology to the market.

Fast-forward a few years, and you’ll see our automated dispensing systems spanning the globe. Our insight-driven solutions power diverse industries: transportation & fleet, healthcare/EMS, asset management and more.

Today, Apex customers and partners range from small, independent companies to the ranks of global manufacturing giants – GE, Procter & Gamble, 3M – innovative distribution organizations – Fastenal, Amazon – and countless service providers, institutions and other forward-thinking organizations. More than 17,000 organizations have deployed Apex systems. Hundreds have deployed them at five or more sites – many with 100 or more devices.

So far we deployed more than 85,000 devices in more than 44 countries on six continents. And we’re just getting started.
