July 3, 2009 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Surrey, B.C.-based Vanguard Plastics Ltd. has announced the creation of VPL Enterprises Ltd., a new company formed from the amalgamation of Vanguard Plastics Ltd. and its two wholly owned B.C.-based subsidiaries – Premo Plastics Engineering Ltd. in Victoria and Primex Manufacturing Ltd. in Langley. The manufacturing operations of the three companies will be relocated to the Langley facility. VPL will continue to market the products of the three companies under their trademark names.
The creation of VPL is a strategic move to streamline the logistics of the three companies. This involves centralizing and combining administration, service, sales, warehousing and production, thereby simplifying processes and optimizing efficiencies.
“We are very enthusiastic about the creation of VPL Enterprises,” says president Bob Smart. “The combination of business units adds financial and operating strength for both our customers and ourselves. Moving all of the brands under one umbrella eliminates duplication and allows for maximum manufacturing efficiency.”
Products manufactured by VPL can be found internationally in numerous industries including residential and commercial construction, retail, home renovation, pharmaceuticals and aerial firefighting.
