Vermeer acquires vacuum excavation specialist

Vermeer Corporation has acquired a vacuum excavation specialist, extending the company’s range of non-destructive excavation products.

Vermeer has purchased Vac-Tron Equipment and plans to integrate the company, along with McLaughlin Group, acquired in 2017, to form a combined group operating as Vermeer MV Solutions.

Vermeer MV Solutions will supply Vermeer-branded vacuum excavation equipment and technology through dedicated Vac-Tron and McLaughlin series product lines, as well as McLaughlin branded utility accessories and auger boring systems.

The group will operate under one combined leadership and sales team led by General Manager Dave Van Wyk, with leadership at Vac-Tron and McLaughlin coming together to serve as a unified team to meet the growing demand in underground utility and soft dig markets.

“This acquisition allows us to leverage the innovation, market expertise and production capabilities across our McLaughlin, Vac-Tron and Vermeer brands to meet increasing customer demand while giving our dealers a more efficient, single-point connection to a full product lineup,” said Vermeer President and CEO Jason Andringa.

“Coming together solidifies the long-term strategy and commitment to support customers and dealers in a unified way.”
