Vermeer Acquires HDD Broker

April 2011 Vol. 66 No. 4

HDD Broker Inc., has been acquired by Vermeer Corporation, a leader in HDD and other underground construction equipment manufacturing, as of April 18.

All HDD Broker management and employees will remain in place, as will members of the family who founded and built the organization.

“An investment from a major corporation gives HDD Broker more backing, so we can increase the used equipment listings and offer more services to customers,” said Bob Martin, president of HDD Broker.

“We have a wonderful following of great customers and leaders in this industry, and we don’t take for granted that we have earned their business and trust over the years,” Martin said. “We look forward to serving customers with an even greater selection of equipment and more resources that can help them navigate through the used equipment trade.”
