Why are we here? VMI exists solely to solve retail problems, the kinds of problems created by the different and competing needs of brands, retailers, and shoppers overlapping at retail. We exist to solve your retail problems.
VMI is located in downtown Chicago, a perfect location for us. It’s an ideal central hub for most retail programs. And it means we’re grounded in middle-American sensibilities but can still tap the energy and resources of a vibrant and cosmopolitan city.
Pat Cloud founded VMI in 1972 believing he could build a better company for clients and employees alike. VMI has been continuously servicing clients’ retail needs since then.
