Our story


Selfserve was established in 1950 and was the first company in the UK to manufacture and supply vending machines. Widely regarded as pioneers within the vending industry, Selfserve vending machines were installed in locations throughout the UK and over the past seventy years, we have maintained our reputation as an innovative manufacturer and leading supplier of washroom vending solutions.


The implementation of the Period Dignity initiative has resulted in growing demand for solutions around the distribution of free period products. At Selfserve, we have supported this initiative from the outset and have designed a range of machines designed specifically to distribute free sanitary products and help our customers implement the scheme quickly and easily.


Having worked extensively with organisations of all sizes including schools, universities, businesses and sports clubs, we are experts in this sector and provide our customers with help and support finding a suitable solution that meets their specific requirements. We understand the importance of providing trusted sanitary brands that women trust.


Over time, our product ranges have evolved in line with consumer habits and trends. Our wide range of period products still includes leading brands such as Tampax, Always and Kotex however we also have an extensive range of organic and sustainable options such as reusable period pants and menstrual cups to ensure we have a wide range of options available.
