About us

S+M GmbH Mesch Family

The two generations of the Mesch family. l.t.r. Sandra, Heiko, Karin and Stefan Mesch.

We are an owner-managed company in its second generation. More than 40 dedicated co-workers are the reason for our success.

S+M was founded in 1985 by Stefan Mesch as „S+M Schaltgeraete Service + Vertriebs GmbH” together with his former partner. In 2016 his son Heiko Mesch took over the company now called “S+M GmbH” as managing director.

We are your specialist partner for integration, distribution and servicing of various payment systems such as coin or banknote as well as cashless payment systems.

Here at S+M we have believed in the potential of cashless payment and digitalization from an early stage. Since 1998 we have been pioneers in the field of telemetry for the vending industry which we now call Connected Vending.

This could be achieved by the foundation of „Höfer Ventronic GmbH”. This enabled the S+M group to take the next step from being a distributor and servicing partner to also becoming a developer and producer of products and systems. So our Connected Vending System Vensolutions was created and is being developed further continuously.
