Chapter 12: Northwestern Today

Today business goes on as usual. Northwestern employees are dedicated and many have worked here for most of their adult lives. That in itself says something about the company that Emerson Bolen founded in 1909 and continues to thrive and grow with the third generation of Bolens at the helm.

Emerson would have taken great pride in the knowledge that ingenuity and hard work have made Northwestern the foremost producer of bulk vending equipment in the world.
