Our Employee-Owned Company

VGM Group, Inc. is a national leader in the health care 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 percent of our more than 1100 associates are based. Other sites include Atlanta, Ga.; Decorah, Iowa; Morristown, N.J., Nashville, TN, North Liberty, Iowa; Phoenix, Ariz.; St. George, Utah, and Toronto, Ontario (Canada).

VGM Group is 100 percent 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, a title we are proud of. 

 

 

Evolving to Meet Customer Needs

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 in managed care, now covers more than 30 million lives annually. VGM Fulfillment started as a small CPAP 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 health care and insurance industries.

 

Our Future

The future of VGM Group is bright. By 2024 we anticipate doubling the number of employee owners and our locations. That would mean we grow to 2000 employees and 18 locations throughout the country. We are positioned to continue offering personalized and meaningful services that connect businesses large and small to the expertise they need.

We are committed to helping our customers sustain the competitive advantage.
