Our Employee-Owned Company

VGM Group, Inc. is a national leader in the healthcare industry and provides business solutions to an expanding number of businesses and industries. The group includes nearly 20 business units led by industry experts who are constantly adapting the business to address our customers’ needs.

We are headquartered in Waterloo, Iowa, where nearly 85% of our more than 1100 associates are based.

VGM Group is 100% employee owned. Employee owners are empowered to own their ownership. This means we create a work environment that is healthy, flexible, and meaningful, so they are equipped to do what they do best—take care of customers. They know that since they are company shareholders, their day-to-day commitment secures their future. This is why we’ve been designated as Iowa’s top workplace multiple times, titles we are proud of.
 

Stories of Opportunity

Part of owning their ownership means VGMers tend to view challenges as opportunities to do something incredible. To celebrate the accomplishments of our VGM family, we release an annual report highlighting the employee owners who embrace our Power of One Principles to support each other, our customers, and our communities. These are our Stories of Opportunity.

Remote Working

At VGM, we know that one of the best ways to support our customers is by supporting our employee owners. VGM strives to offer as much flexibility as reasonably possible to our workforce. This includes fully remote and partial remote positions, and in some cases, shifting work hours to support work-life balance.

We’re constantly assessing the optimal balance between on-site and remote work. And we do what we can to support our employees’ needs and the needs of each business unit within VGM Group—all while remaining true to our VGM culture.
 

A Brief History

In 1986, Van G. Miller founded VGM with an investment from two life-long friends. Their help brought Van’s vision to life—a national buying group for independent home medical equipment providers (HME). The humble startup swelled to include over 100 employees in the first decade alone, and we haven’t stopped growing—today, we employ more than 1,000.

As we’ve expanded, so have our offerings. HOMELINK, a national provider network that gives access to high quality, cost-effective products, vendors, and services via an efficient, effective and caring, national integrated delivery system. VGM Fulfillment started as a CPAP supply shipping operation. It’s grown to several locations and makes over 4,000 shipments per day. In three short decades, our success has led us in many new directions, allowing us to become a major player in the healthcare and insurance industries.
