The Buried Asset Management Institute-International
(BAMI-I) will hold its first-ever Global
Buried Asset Management Congress (GBAMC).
Scheduled to take place September 28-30
Vermeer Opens New Global Parts Distribution Center
Vermeer opened its new, 312,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Global Parts Distribution
Center, on the grounds of its Pella, Iowa, corporate headquarters, to support the important
work customers and dealers are performing around the world. Built on a legacy of
customer support, it's specifically located at the end of the old runway where company
founder Gary Vermeer once delivered parts to Vermeer customers by plane.
" Vermeer is focused on optimizing this facility so we can most efficiently deliver the right
part at the right time to our customers, " said Tony Briggs, vice president of the Vermeer
Lifecycle product group. " This facility allows customer support, engineering, procurement
and logistics to be co-located. They work in conjunction with our operational team
members to make sure we fulfill customer and dealer expectations daily. "
The location of the Global Parts Distribution Center leverages the manufacturing
capabilities of the " Vermeer mile, " where most Vermeer products are assembled.
" Almost 1/3 of the warehouse is filled with parts made by different manufacturing plants on
the Vermeer mile. It is very convenient for us to be located near the manufacturing facilities
that supply those parts. Ultimately, we bundle the Vermeer-manufactured parts with other
parts and ship the orders around the world to take care of our customers, " said Briggs.
With three times more space than the previous building, the new Global Parts Distribution
Center includes 23 dock doors, a warehouse management system and improved warehouse
technology. This investment will help drive efficiency by centralizing parts storage.
" With people at the center of everything we do, this new facility helps our team members
equip dealers and support customers, and that ultimately makes a real impact on their
ability to get important work done, " said Jason Andringa, Vermeer president and CEO.
The Global Parts Distribution Center is the second facility Vermeer has opened in 2023.
Earlier this year, the company expanded its parts manufacturing footprint in Des Moines,
Iowa. That facility manufactures horizontal directional drill tooling and utility tractor
attachments.
As the number of products and markets Vermeer supports expands, the company
continues to invest in its aftermarket efforts to meet the needs of a global economy. UI

methods to enhance asset value, ensuring
the longevity of buried assets through
comprehensive health assessment and
management, and ensuring compliance with
current and future regulatory requirements.

inventory and mapping, pipeline condition
assessment, trenchless technologies, level of
service, involvement, risk analysis, life cycle
costing, long-term funding plans, research and
education, and regulation compliance.
