We’ve had quite a bit of change here at Vigo over the last 12 months and we really want to share our news with you.
To those of you who have known us for many years, we’re sorry that we couldn’t divulge more at the time — we really wanted to. We’re sure, though, that you’ll understand how slowly legal wheels can turn and how important it is to allow time for ‘bedding in’ after times of change. Thank you for your patience. To those of you haven’t known us for very long, welcome!
Now for the big reveal. Here are the main changes …
We are pleased to announce that Vigo Ltd’s new owner and Managing Director is Simon Pitts. Simon has been our Finance Director for the last 7 years.
It was very important to Vigo’s founder and previous owner for 33 years, Alex Hill, to sell the business to someone he trusted implicitly, who had the resources and skills to move it forwards and continue its ethos. Simon is focused, intuitive and highly respected by the members of our team. Here are a few words from Simon:
“I’m really excited about the future and seeing the business continue to grow. For me it’s very much about evolution not revolution. Vigo has been successful by providing good quality equipment, and growing with our customers. That will continue. My colleagues and our customers really make Vigo. Our customers are passionate about their product, and we are equally passionate about the products and support we give. As soon as I started working here in 2010 I realised that there was a ‘get the job done’ ethic that I really value.” Simon Pitts, Managing Director
I am sure that those of you who have known Alex Hill for many years will be pleased for him that he has managed to retire — never easy when you own a business you love. Alex still gives us his support and we can tap into his vast knowledge bank as and when required.
Equipment and support are our business. We look forward to sharing this new phase in Vigo’s journey with you.
From the team at Vigo Ltd
