The Vermeer Manufacturing Company was founded in Iowa USA in 1948 and as the Vermeer Corporation it is now a manufacturer of agricultural and excavation equipment. They are well known for the design and manufacturing of horizontal directional drills, pneumatic piercing tools and vacuum systems.
In 1970 Vermeer International is incorporated in Goes, the Netherlands as a subsidiary of Vermeer Manufacturing Co. In 1998, Vermeer International is moved to its current location: Nijverheidsstraat 20, Eindewege, 's-Heer Arendskerke. Then in 2008, the name is changed to “Vermeer EMEA” to represent the Vermeer office for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Nice detail: Their current location is the former building of a company I have been working for uptill they went bankrupt.
