Vermeer Adds Dealer in Colombia

Vermeer Corporation expands its South America dealer network with the addition of Medellín, Colombia, based Ve Group. With the addition of Vermeer underground construction equipment, Ve Group will be able to provide its Colombian customers with high-quality construction equipment, as well as aftermarket parts and service support.

“Ve Group is committed to its customers”, said Tony Briggs, vice president — sales & distribution at Vermeer. “Dealer Principal Santiago Durango has an established track record and in-market experience in the pipeline installation, maintenance and rehabilitation markets. He puts his customers’ needs first. We are confident he and everyone at Ve Group will do an excellent job of representing Vermeer.”

Over the last 10 years, Ve Group has been instrumental in establishing trenchless technology best practices in South America and has formally trained more than 1,300 people at universities and on jobsites. The team at Ve Group has provided support and onsite expertise on many of the largest underground projects in Colombia and surrounding countries. Santiago is also a founding member of ICTIS, the Colombian International Society for Trenchless Technology chapter.

“Our partnership with Vermeer will be good for contractors in Colombia,” Durango said. “We’ve always been committed to providing our customers with the best solutions at the best value, and the Vermeer utility installation products exceed our high standards. I’ve had the opportunity to work with the team at Vermeer in various roles throughout my career, and I know they will do a great job of working with customers and us. We’re excited to be representing the Vermeer brand.”
