WEST CHESTER, Pa., March 23, 2010 — After assessing the success of the Conlux brand over the past three years, MEI has renewed The Wittern Group (Clive, Iowa) as its North America Master Distributor of Conlux products. Wittern is a premier manufacturer and distributor of vending machines and products, and MEI has designated the company to remain the direct contact for operators sourcing Conlux parts and service support for the next four years. Conlux products and spare parts will be shipped from Des Moines , Iowa .

“MEI has been pleased with Wittern’s support of the Conlux brand for the past three years, and we are excited to continue this distribution partnership,” said Jeff Jordan, executive vice president of MEI’s global vending business. “As a trusted name in the vending industry, Wittern has helped support and grow the Conlux brand.”

“In addition to working with existing Conlux customers, Wittern introduced new operators to the Conlux brand,” said Heidi Chico, vice chairman of The Wittern Group. “Our goal is to continue delivering the best service and sales support to MEI’s Conlux customers.”

Conlux products have earned the loyalty of operators due to their reliability and simplicity. Operators can quickly master set-up and configuration changes, making integration into their operation seamless. New product enhancements to both the coin mechanism and bill validator increase the value that only the Conlux brand can offer operators.
