Vanguard Holdings

Vanguard Holdings is the parent of the Vanguard group of companies. As the engineering company developed, Vanguard naturally purchased sites for use as depots. By 1990 Vanguard functioned from fourteen large freehold locations; Avonmouth, Birtley, Bridport, Bury, Coventry, Dereham, Dublin, Glasgow, London Perivale (Western Avenue and Bilton Road), the Isle of Dogs, Manchester, Milton Keynes and Portsmouth. In 1998 Vanguard sold the engineering business to focus on the expansion of self-storage and document storage.
