Vermeer MV Solutions new facility officially open

Vermeer MV Solutions new facility officially open
Thursday, Nov. 18, Vermeer MV Solutions celebrated the grand opening of their new, 130,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Piedmont, South Carolina, with a ribbon-cutting event.

Formerly known as McLaughlin Group, Inc., Vermeer MV Solutions has been an industry leader in vacuum excavation innovation for 100 years. In November 2018, Vermeer Corporation announced its purchase of Vac-Tron Equipment, and its plans to bring the Florida-based company together with McLaughlin Group, Inc. which was purchased by Vermeer in 2017 and start Vermeer MV Solutions. This acquisition and integration of the two companies built on the Vermeer strategy to provide a comprehensive suite of vacuum excavation technology, equipment, training and support to the growing underground utility and soft dig markets.

"Thank you to the team members that are going to work in this facility for many years to come, designing, building and supporting the incredible equipment that's going to come out of this facility,” stated Vermeer President and CEO Jason Andringa. “We're excited to see what you will do with this facility.”

This new facility marks an intentional investment by Vermeer Corporation to keep more than 150 manufacturing jobs in South Carolina for the growing Vermeer MV Solutions business and the strengthening vacuum excavation industry.

"The Vermeer MV Solutions team everyday here and in Florida come to work and lead the market in vacuum excavation,” shard Vermeer President, Industrial Solutions Doug Hundt. “We anticipate a lot of volume through this facility and it will become Vermeer’s center of excellence for truck vac excavation.”

This all-new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility provides more than 130,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing workspace on 43 acres of land featuring air-conditioned break rooms, conditioned air on the factory floor and a market offering healthy break options for all team members. The facility has the option to expand the footprint even further with future growth. With more than 150 team members already working in the facility and a growing need for skilled talent, there’s never been a better time to work at Vermeer MV Solutions.

“Great job to the Vermeer MV Solutions team,” stated General Manager of Vermeer MV Solutions David Van Wyk. “It’s been a long time coming, but it's so great to see it and well worth it for the building that we have.”
