WE MAKE IT HAPPEN

We undertake projects that we know others can’t do, and only where we know we can make something truly exceptional.

  • About Us

  • WE HAVE A 35 YEAR HERITAGE

    For those of you who don’t yet know us, here’s a little bit about where we started and how we got to where we are today.

    We have a 35 years heritage. We only undertake projects that we know others can’t do, and only where we know we can make something truly exceptional. The proof of our success and how respected we are in this industry is evidenced by our client list and the events/locations where we have worked.

    Amongst our many clients we are proud to have strong ties with Molson Coors, Anheuser Bush – Inbev, Heineken, Carlsberg and Diageo. We have worked at every major indoor venue in the UK and on the very largest music festivals and band tours from Glastonbury to the V Festivals, Jay Z to Coldplay.

    We have the know-how to dispense any liquid, in any measurement, from any vessel quickly – very quickly

    • In 1981 at Reading Festival we were the first people IN THE WORLD to innovate tanker dispense (yes thats a road tanker containing 43,200 pints in it)

    • In 1993 we designed the worlds first MDU

    • In 2014 we digitised the MDU, allowing any product in any measurement to be served, instantly by one person.

    • In 2016, we launched our wonderful products and Services over in Australia.

    • In 2018 so far we have dispensed more than 3.12m drinks and this will continue to climb as we approach the busy period in the Southern hemisphere!

  • Our History

    1981:

    Tom Merton started TM Installations working on the very first beer cooling units installed in London – it was his expertise in dispense that got this revolutionary product installed throughout the capital

    1984:

    Tom Merton devised a way of installing smaller systems in a variety of venues and most impressively on board continental cruise ships – radically changing the drinking experience

    1988:

    At Reading Festival, the UK’s biggest music event, Tom and his team were the first people in the world to dispense lager from a road tanker (containing 50,000 pints of beer). Overnight brewers went from being able to sell hundreds of kegs at events to hundreds of BARRELS – and to this very day, this remains the most lucrative and efficient means of dispense for both the brewers and the retailers

  • Our History

    1990:

    Jay Merton joined Tom’s team. Little did they realise then that his eldest son would become such an important part of the Research & Development team

    1993:

    We want more beer, poured more quickly, but we want to use less staff. It was at this time that our challenge to innovate started. Welcome to the MDU (Multi Dispense Unit) – 1 person capable of pouring thousands of pints in an hour or to put it another way…12 beers in 20 seconds

    1998:

    Anheuser Busch enter the UK music market at Glastonbury and the ‘V’ festivals. We were there to build bespoke equipment for them, and were the first and only people ever to dispense Budweiser from a tanker.

  • Our History

    2003:

    Our first time at T in The Park coincided with the festivals 10th Anniversary, and we have been back every year since. This is the biggest music festival in Scotland and one of the booziest in the world!

    2005:

    Reece Merton (the youngest son) joins the family business after completing Law School and enjoying a long spell as a Director of Barclays Bank. Two generations working together with very different skill sets leads the way to a key step change for the business

    2007:

    TM Installations re-brands as ‘Voodoo Group’. In a niche and affluent market the family decides they need the business to stand out. Creating the Voodoo brand achieved this milestone. In the UK, Voodoo is synonymous with designing, creating and manufacturing ingenious and often bespoke (frequently white labelled) products. We become known for maximising income through alcohol dispense.

  • Our History

    2009:

    Voodoo creates ‘green’ dispense equipment for the Eden Project – the UK’s famous environmentally friendly eco-venue in Cornwall which is also used as a chic music venue

    2014:

    Several new projects are underway and these will yield some of the most unexpected and revolutionary ideas ever seen – keep tabs on us

    2016:

    New digital products and our entry to the Australian market.

  • MDU

    12 DRINKS IN 20 SECONDS, MEANING 2,160 PINTS PER HOUR

    This is the lifeblood of our business. It is what makes Voodoo the industry leader. We are constantly striving to design equipment that is more efficient, cheaper and greener – our objectives are aligned with our customers.
    The Multi Dispense Unit (MDU) was brought to life in the early 90’s when a seemingly ludicrous idea became a reality. Our machines were the first ever designed – even in its most recent form it is still the benchmark MDU available on the market today.

  • Bespoke Dispense

    We design and deliver exceptional and original equipment to make you stand out from the crowd. Whether you want a dispenser that pours 2, 20 or 200 drinks simultaneously we can do it. Permanent, temporary or mobile options, branded or plain, showing adverts or playing music – tell us what you want and we will build it.

  • Fast Pour

    Our new easy-tap is a freeflow tap which is activated by the actual glass, allowing for a one handed pour means two drinks at once and in an eye watering 10 seconds. Our swift-oo tap has a magical block that turns the beer allowing us to serve super quick. This is a metered device and can pour two drinks simultaneously in around 10 seconds

  • Heineken IE

    The technical skill and knowledge of the voodoo guys is exceptional. Their operation is very professional and their intention is to serve the best pint of beer possible. I spent the day watching them set up the dispense equipment for the Green Day gig in Dublin & I took along a mini lab with me to test the cleanliness of the lines before we let our product through the system and the results were outstanding. We also set them the difficult task of maintaining the temperature of the Heineken served at Marley Park and Oxegen Festival to under 2 degrees centigrade for the entire event (thurs-sun), this high specification they did deliver. They are highly professional, dependable & a great team to work with.

  • Wembley Stadium

    I have known and been using voodoo group here at wembley stadium since 2005 when they built 6 mdus for us for our pitch bar that we use for the concerts. So far since opening we have sold over 400,000 pints of Carlsberg through the mdus without any major breakdown or equipment failure. I have always found the equipment that they supply to be reliable and fault free. The technical support given is also first class and if there is an issue they deal with it in a professional manner and resolve things so the supply is maintained.

  • Molson Coors

    Molson Coors have been using Voodoo for many years now for our sponsored festival activity involving brands like Carling & Coors Light. Voodoo’s expertise in delivering the perfect pint at festivals like isle of wight and v festival as well as beach break, boardmasters and freeze is absolutely vital in creating the best drinking experience for the consumer. We at Molson Coors have ultimate trust in Voodoo delivering the goods which allows us to concentrate on all the other aspects of brand involvement at major music festivals. We also find everyone at voodoo incredibly easy to work with, so as well as the actual dispense being perfect we can rely on them to keep us informed of any issues from start to finish. The whole package is extremely professional and that’s why we wouldn’t use anybody else.
