Associated Vending of Cincinnati, Ohio, has a long history in the coin-operated amusement business. Founded in 1938 as Supreme Novelty by Norton Robinson with the assistance of his brother Ben Robinson who was a coin machine distributor in Detroit, Michigan at the time, the company has been family owned and operated for more than 70 years.
Associated Vending’s president, Steve Robinson, joined his father, Norton, in the family business in 1974 to form Associated Vending. They were joined by Steve’s brother Ron in 1977. Today, Steve Robinson runs the company with the same personal attention and great service that the company was founded on seven decades ago.
Associated Vending operates thousands of coin-op machines in nearly 300 locations in four states (Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana) with equipment in restaurants, bars, bowling alleys, movie theaters, and retail stores. Associated Vending can satisfy any location’s needs by offering the latest in jukeboxes, pool tables, counter top games, video games, pinball machines, cranes, and prize redemption equipment.
In 2006, the company moved into a state-of-the-art 20,000-square-foot facility where modern equipment, skilled technicians, and a commitment to customer satisfaction are longstanding traditions for Associated Vending.
