The Automatic Products Co. has been in business since 1949. Today they are owned by the Crane Company and are the leading manufacturer of glassfront snack, hot and cold beverage and frozen food vending machines. These 3 different 1950’s era vending machines illustrate the diversity in machines that evidently date back to the very beginning of this company.
