Mission Statement

Scanomat UK’s mission is to deliver the world’s most revolutionary, technologically advanced & premium beverage eco-system by redefining the consumer beverage experience using the very latest smart connected technology.


The founding years

Scanomat was founded in Denmark more than 50 years ago in the early sixties. The company started to operate out of a small garage and soon after, moved to an industrial area in Glostrup, Denmark where the company had its head quarters for many years.

In 1985 Scanomat launched the world's first fully automatic Cappuccino machine! Since then Scanomat has been continually developing and designing new, reliable, and economical products to improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of service, and the quality drinks dispensed.

In late 1991 early 1992 Scanomat moved to new premises in Kokkedal, Denmark specially built to comply with Scanomat's evolving needs: production, stock, service department, research and development team, showrooms, and administration team.

Scanomat manufactures, develops, and markets some of the world's best professional coffee brewers. Scanomat has a unique "know-how" along with tremendous knowledge and a wealth of experience.

The present

Today, the name Scanomat is synonymous with excellent tasting coffees, cappuccinos, and other hot and cold beverages. The Scanomat package is based on modern technology, a superior range of products, efficient and effective service and financial flexibility.

Worldwide, Scanomat serves almost 2 million cups of coffee per day and over half a billion per year. Coffee is the world's second biggest commodity and the single most profitable product in the world. We can help you take advantage of some of this profit… Research and development - "Innovating not Imitating"

The culture at Scanomat has always been to "Innovate not Imitate". Having launched the first ever fully automated Cappuccino system, Scanomat's owner, Kim vibe Petersen has ensured significant amounts of investment in research and development that has kept the company at the cutting edge of design and functionality within the industry.

With advanced research and development technology, including the use of state of the art 3D CAD/CAM, Scanomat continue to "Innovate not Imitate".

In today's world of sustainability and demands by customers to improve energy efficiency, Scanomat is already leading the way in developing new systems for the modern world.


A global business reach

Today, Scanomat exports to distributors in more than 46 countries. Due to the excellent quality of the product being served from Scanomat brewers, Scanomat has succeeded in changing the image of instant coffee. We fully expect to influence the growing culture of Bean to Cup systems too! In Scandinavia more than 25,000 Scanomat brewers are installed and we supply to five star hotels and highly regarded restaurants as well as offices and well -known fast-food chains to name just a few.

More than 90% of Scanomat's production is exported, the most considerable markets being the UK, USA, Germany, Benelux, France, Poland, Middle East – and Scandinavia. We look forward to expanding our reach further.
