Vanguardcelebrates 30th birthday Starting out as a single manufacturing facility, Vanguard is now a global corporation, designing and producing quality tripods, monopods, bags and cases for photo and video enthusiasts the world over


It’s just shy of a year since Vanguard launched the VEO Collection of travel tripods, monopods and bags at The Photography Show, but a lot has happened in that year. Vanguard tells us that the reaction to the collection has been fantastic, with the VEO 265CB carbon-fibre travel tripod, VEO 37 shoulder bag and VEO AM-264TR monopod with tri-foot all winning awards – see page 40 for our review of the AM-264TR. And of course, Vanguard is also in the Photography News Awards; the VEO 204AB, VEO 265CB, Up‑Rise II 43 and Xcenior 48T are all nominated.

Founded in 1986, Vanguard is proud to be commemorating its 30th birthday, with plans for a year full of reminiscing as well as looking forward to a bright future. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to get involved with the fun, we’re promised in-store events and a social media campaign; watch out for #30YearsLater. When Vanguard started out,

it had a single manufacturing facility, but now the company operates worldwide, producing not only quality photo and video accessories, but sporting optics and accessories. It’s still a family-owned business, headquartered in Guangdong, China, with distribution, sales and administrative branches here in the UK, as well as in Luxembourg,

Spain, Germany, the USA and Japan. The company attributes its continued success to its high standards from the initial concepts and designs right through to engineering and manufacturing in its own factories. Last year’s launch of the VEO Collection is just the first stride into the future, we’re told. Upcoming

launches innovative features and products building on the legacy of the company’s high- quality and feature-packed kit. Turn to the inside back cover for more on Vanguard products. And to stay up to date with the company’s news, visit its Facebook page. promise
