VIG is a leader in machine moving and industrial relocation. We've been in business since 1964 and have established a reputation for skilled and careful project coordination, attention to detail, strict control from start to finish and visibility throughout.
In August 2019, Vanguard VML Group was acquired by the private investment business Oxygen Partners who plan to continue growing the business. Under its new ownership, the business is focusing its activities to build on its core experience base and develop deeper and wider relationships with its customers and grow the business sustainably.
“Working for a major manufacturer of brake pads within the North-East of England, VIG uplifted and disposed of an old paint line and working alongside the client OEMs, replaced it with a brand new line. To achieve this VIG had some complex internal moving of machinery to complete. The VIG team was a pleasure to work with on this project, with their professional attitude, can do mentality from management and staff along with the safe working practices they applied, everything was completed safely, within the project time frame and to budget. Please pass on my sentiments to the team who are a credit to your company and I look forward to working with VIG team again on our future projects”

“Just like to say that the works carried out by VIG were professional and well organised keeping to programme, carrying out complex removal and installation works safely and efficiently. The staff were cooperative and compliant with all on site and client controls and policies without any prompting. This was especially appreciated as the Covid-19 protocols can be very restrictive and effect personal comfort. They are our “go to” company for plant movement and this contract was another success with a large contribution

Having used VIG on numerous occasions over the last year, I have found them to be extremely friendly, proficient and competitive.During these difficult times where many have been unable to support us with our moves to a new purpose built facility, VIG have proved to be invaluable. Often these moves have been carried out over extremely short periods of time due to our changing manufacturing demands. Therefore, I would not hesitate to recommend for future projects large or small.

"Your guys did a great job for us, please thank them. It wasn’t easy. Despite getting off to a head start by moving the downender before they arrived, the coil crane proved more of a challenge. Really good job - not easy but saw it through, thanks."

"VIG were asked to remove and dispose of a factory full of composite manufacturing equipment. VIG were professional and efficient throughout the whole process from quotation to final execution. As with all projects of this size nothing is simple or easy but any bumps in the road were quickly ironed out between both sides.I would recommend VIG to any business who need to move manufacturing equipment safely and professionally"

"I engaged VIG to assist with a major project that had a very difficult and demanding timeline for completion. This involved the loading, transportation, and commissioning of a large amount of heavy Industrial equipment. Any failure in this operation had very serious consequences for the new business that was being set up. Thankfully, Paul Muir, Kelly Constable and the team at VIG were more than up to this mammoth task, in fact every deadline we had was exceeded and they went above and beyond to ensure we were able to start production, nothing whatsoever was a problem. Everything was done in a completely professional and friendly manner, with excellent lines of communication at all times. I will be using VIG again on another project this coming summer, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any other company that has this requirement, an absolutely amazing effort, a big thank you from all at Advanced Composites, to all of the team at VIG."
Mechanical Project Engineer - Construction
"The operatives from VIG were faced with an intricate lift and shift operation at Berwick Leisure Centre including large air handling units and mechanical plant items. The site itself provided many logistical challenges for plant offloading and final positioning however the VIG operatives provided the required solutions to overcome each obstacle which arose throughout the 3-day operation. The site operatives conducted themselves in a professional manner throughout and approached each task with the highest regard to health and safety. The lifting operations were carried out in a safe and timely manner ensuring project critical dates where achieved."
