History

The history of VDL USA, Inc. started with PMB in 1935 in the Netherlands with machines designed and manufactured for the Cigar producing industry.  Ever since, numerous successful installations around the globe, varying from single hand type units to highly sophisticated systems, have been a major part of the PMB's business. the letters PMB stand for "Patent Machine Bouw". The North American presence was established in 1980 with the opening of the facility in Richmond, Virginia. This division has since then been expanded to an over 22,000 square foot facility, supporting activities in sales, service and parts for the Northern American markets.

In 1985 the PMB-Group, now called VDL PMB-UVA bv., diversified into packaging machinery manufacturing through the acquisition of UVA which had experience for already 30 years. The assortment of UVA, abbreviation for "Universele Verpakking Apparatuur" (Universal Packaging Equipment) was focused on vertical form fill and seal machinery. With the acquisition of Servotech S.A., in 1992 UVA provided access to high tech packaging markets with servo driven machinery for the food and nonfood markets.

In 2003 VDL Groep purchased PMB-UVA International B.V. and extended once again their position in the supply chain for machinery and equipment.

As of 2003 PMB-UVA Inc. has changed their name to VDL USA, Inc. supporting all VDL Activities for the Northern American markets.
