History and Innovation
VMAC Global Technology Inc. was founded in 1986 in Ontario, Canada as Mangonel Corporation by current CEO Jim Hogan, and his friend Tony Menard.
Tony and Jim were two young mechanical engineers with a keen sense of business and a strong ability to solve persistent mechanical problems. The company was originally funded by the Canadian Military, designing “throw away” jet engines for target drones. When the recession hit, project funding got cancelled, Tony and Jim transitioned the company into a “build to print” machine shop.
During this time, the service truck industry started changing and required more expertise to solve challenges with new technology. In 1988, Jim and Tony were asked to engineer UNDERHOOD compressor mounts for service trucks. This marked the start of what has now become known as VMAC – Vehicle Mounted Air Compressors.
In 2006, VMAC made the strategic decision to “come out from under the hood” with the launch of Hydraulic driven deck mounted air compressors. This triggered many more years of innovation with the introduction of new compact and powerful diesel engine driven air compressors and multi-power systems, gas engine powered air compressors, and PTO driven air compressors, to keep up with the ever-changing demands of the service truck industry.
