About Us

VAC Group - An Australian Success Story

Our people are the key to our success and our most important and valued asset. The great attitude of our staff is our competitive edge, which ensures our clients consistently enjoy a fantastic VAC Group experience, time after time.

We regularly receive glowing recommendations from clients, who take the time to let us know about our vacuum excavation and utility location operators who have gone the 'extra mile' to ensure underground utility conflicts were successfully managed on their projects. We also take the time to proactively approach clients, learn about their experiences and gain insight to further enhance both our procedures and onsite performance.

“When it comes to non-destructive vacuum excavation, it’s not only about the overall size of the vehicle - there are a number of key factors that need to be taken into account. Together with factors such as tank / hopper capacities and vacuum pressure, there are also the critical issues relating to size, maneuverability, ease of use of the equipment and, perhaps most importantly, the operating costs.”

Neil Costello, VAC Group’s Director
