Founded in 1909 by current owner Bill Westerhaus’ grandfather Joseph George Westerhaus, Pioneer Vending was originally known as the Westerhaus Amusement Company. In 1934, management of the company was passed on to his son Joseph Westerhaus II. The company has continued to flourish and grow, ever since.
Over the years, Pioneer Vending has continued to grow to become the leading vending machine provider in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. This growth and success has been made possible through a number of mergers and acquisitions.
In 1989, following the death of Joseph George Westerhaus II, company ownership passed to his children; Joe Westerhaus Jr., Nancy Baxter and Bill Westerhaus. Again in 1997 and 1998, ownership of the company changed, when Bill Westerhaus purchased Joe and Nancy’s shares. In 2007, Bill’s stepson Luke Adams joined the company full time. Luke currently oversees management and works closely with Bill at the main office in Cincinnati, Ohio.
