June 2, 2011HDD Broker Inc., one of the industry’s foremost authorities on selling and buying used horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and other construction equipment, has been acquired by Vermeer Corp., a leader in HDD and other underground construction equipment manufacturing.
HDD Broker, with locations in Victoria, British Columbia, and Naples, Fla., was founded in 1999 and over the last decade became one of the industry’s leading suppliers of used and repossessed equipment and advice and data related to used equipment trading.

All HDD Broker management and employees will remain in place and members of the family who founded and built the organization are looking forward to continuing to serve used equipment sellers and buyers based on core values. Those values include integrity, courtesy and honesty; exceeding customer expectations; working as a team and having fun. They also promote the “broker advantage,” which centers on an extensive selection of equipment, unbiased advice, value and customer service, the press release said.
