VDM is an operationally diverse company operating in a range of sectors across the globe. VDM is named for Van der Meer, the surname of the company’s founder, who established the original business in 1978.
The company grew steadily before a period of rapid expansion beginning in 2004, during which time VDM acquired two Western Australian construction companies. These were the first of a number of strategic acquisitions designed to enhance the company’s capabilities in order to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding mining, oil and gas industries. In 2006 VDM Group listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, enabling the injection of additional capital towards company expansion. VDM acquired several WA and Queensland-based engineering consultancies, bolstering the company’s presence in key resources markets.
Since day one, VDM has focused on outstanding technical integrity and efficient problem solving. Strong organic growth and complementary acquisitions helped the company develop into a preferred supplier for the resources and urban development sectors. Our business experience includes structural steel construction, design, and construction of mine accommodation and non-process infrastructure, earthworks and civil infrastructure, road building and urban development projects.
Today, VDM is organised within the three business divisions of VDM Mining, VDM Construction, VDM Trading. It is our central focus to deliver the most innovative and world class quality solutions for our customers by bringing together the best of Australian and Chinese technology and practices.
