Looking ahead, VMS Industries remains committed to its growth trajectory, focusing on strategic initiatives and future opportunities.

Incorporated on December 2, 1991, VMS Industries initially provided consulting and information technology services. However, with the revival of the ship-breaking industry in 2003-04, the company diversified its activities. Today, VMS Industries is a leading name in ship recycling and asset dismantling, with a strong track record of growth and operational excellence.

 

The declaration of the first interim dividend and the company’s impressive financial performance underscore VMS Industries’ commitment to enhancing shareholder value and its confidence in future growth prospects. As the company continues to execute its strategic initiatives, it remains focused on delivering sustained growth and creating value for its investors and stakeholders.
