Vanguard VML Group becomes one of the leading machinery movement and turnkey project delivery contractors for the Automotive manufacturing sector
With its headquarters in Wales, Vanguard covers the whole of the United Kingdom and Europe from their regional engineering depots including Bridgend which services our customers in Wales and the M4 corridor. The development and exceptional growth achieved in 2017 positions the company as a key provider of machine moving and machinery installation services for Tier 1 and 2 automotive manufacturers and their specialist OEM’s.
Our projects have included work for some of the largest automotive brands in Tier 1 and Tier 2 main manufacturers as well the specialist OEM’s in engine and test bed lines, press shop, die cast, paint shop, finishing, seating, plastic extrusion, conveying and body in white projects where Vanguard has been heavily involved both in the machinery installation and relocation as well as the electrical and pipework elements.
The knowledge held within the company spans both the engineering and project management teams and most importantly the quality and experience of the skilled site personnel. This, along with the vision and strong networks of the senior management team has enabled this incredible progression to position the company at the forefront of site machinery logistics and quality mechanical and electrical support.
Whilst Automotive manufacturing is a key sector for the company there are many other sectors such as Aerospace, Food and Beverage, Metals, Paper, Plastics and Power Generation that Vanguard has extensive knowledge in. Customers in these sectors benefit from the exceptional machine moving capability that the project and site teams have as well as the intrinsic and in-house electrical and pipework teams in the company.
Vanguard is a professionally controlled, multi-discipline contractor and has grown to become a leading service provider on any project whether it be a multi-stream turnkey plant relocation across several continents or one linear process moving internally in the factory.
2018 continues the trend and the welcome of new opportunities within the United Kingdom’s manufacturing sector that we look forward to supporting in the future.
