Vehicle Service Group to update manufacturing operation

Updated Jul 30, 2012

Vehicle Service Group (VSG), parent company of vehicle service equipment manufacturers Rotary Lift, Chief Automotive Technologies, Forward Lift, Direct Lift, Revolution Lift, Hanmecson, nogra and Blitz, has made substantial investments in its global manufacturing facilities.

VSG says it is investing more than $1 million in its North American manufacturing facility this year, and recently broke ground for a 54,000 sq. ft. expansion of its Asian manufacturing facility. VSG currently has three ISO 9001-certified manufacturing centers: one in Madison, Ind., that serves North and South America; one in Haimen, China, to serve the Asian and Australian markets; and one in Europe dedicated to Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

VSG also says it is installing a new laser manufacturing system and two additional CNC machining centers in its North American facility. The investments are said to improve responsiveness to customer orders, reduce manufacturing costs, increase the facility’s productivity and provide capacity for future market growth.

“As a North American-based global manufacturer, VSG is uniquely positioned to respond quickly to increasing demand for high-quality vehicle service equipment in new markets around the world,” says VSG President Gary Kennon. “We continuously evaluate all of our manufacturing facilities and invest as needed to ensure that we consistently produce the highest-quality and most reliable products in appropriate quantities to support our customers worldwide.”
