Growth

Since its founding in 1986, VGM Group has evolved several times over. Perhaps the most significant evolution came in 2008 when we became 100% employee owned. This shift is the primary driver of our current and future growth. We’re approximately 5x larger today, with employee owners in 37 states and Canada. And because we constantly change to meet our customers’ needs, we’re destined to become an even bigger company, serving even more types of businesses—all due to the power of employee ownership.
