The history of Vermeer began when Gary Vermeer modified a farm cart in 1948 by attaching a lifting device to it. The high demand for this invention eventually led to the creation of the Vermeer Manufacturing Company in Pella, Iowa, USA.
For 60 years, this company has had more than one invention, for example, the world's first round hay press, wood waste shredder and stump shredder.
Since its inception, the small, one-man, Iowa-based Vermeer business has grown to become a global agricultural, construction, industrial and forestry equipment corporation.
In 1991, Vermeer introduced the NAVIGATOR line of horizontal directional drilling rigs to the world market, which later served as the fiber optic cable for the worldwide data superhighway. With a strong leadership position in the trenching equipment industry, Vermeer products are highly sought after by rental companies and other clients in road construction and mining operations.
At present, Vermeer Manufacturing for the family of HDD rigs has a whole brand portfolio: Navigator - a trademark of the family of HDD rigs, Firestick - drill rods; Navtec - computer control system for the drilling process; RockFire - rock drilling head; Splinelok is a drill rod coupling mechanism.
Vermeer Corporation is making an impact on the progressive development of the world through the production of high quality equipment for tree maintenance, agriculture, underground construction, open pit mining, and environmental protection equipment. Highly durable and reliable, this equipment is backed by on-site customer service and technical support from independent dealers around the world.
