The VAC Group Story: Innovating since 2000
VAC Group is powered by a passionate and incredibly talented team, comprised of over 200 employees.
After investigating the technology he encountred in America further, looking at the industry implications and identifying possible future uses, Neil identified a clear need for non-destructive excavation technology in the Australian market.
From his visit to the USA, Neil concluded that the technology he saw could be further innovated and augmented to deliver a suite of non-destructive and utility-focused services. Such innovation would prove to significantly mitigate the risk of dangerous line strikes, which at the time was a frequent and expensive occurrence in the industry.
To kick things off, the very first purchased equipment was VAC Tron Equipment out of Florida, soon after another Vac Truck was purchased. The team were quick to start their engines and soon landed a major contract with Transport Main Roads, working on the North Arm Intersection on the Sunshine Coast. From here the business started to flourish, with bigger and bigger clients calling in each month to request Vacuum Excavation Services.
While things were going well in the early 2000s, the team knew they needed to do more to grow and improve their operational scope. With this in mind, in 2002 VAC Group took a calculated leap and began building their own high-quality and custom-built units, tailored for Australia’s harsh and immensely diverse range of landscapes and environmental conditions.
In the same year, the group further diversified within their field by introducing ground-penetrating radar services, powered by a hand-picked team of advanced radar and utility locating specialists, now known as Earth Radar.
More recently, one of the most significant pieces of technology to come through VAC Group’s innovative research and development centre has been the Latro, an innovative 3D GPR system utilising Noise-Modulated GPR (NM-GPR). Another significant innovation came in waste management, where VAC Group pioneered the revolutionary Soil Transfer System to mitigate costs, environmental concerns, and time when it comes to a project’s soil and waste disposal process.
