    Notes 
    • Mr. Carlos Augusto da Rosa and Mr. Samuel Macomber Churn founded Vibro Piling Company Hong Kong in 1929. Initially Vibro was a small company employing a few staff and only focused on piling projects in Hong Kong.

      The term "Vibro" is an abbreviation of Vibro Piling System. In the 1920s Mr. A. Hiley, a British structural engineer with British Steel Piling Company, invented the Vibro Piling System. In 1929 Mr. Carlos Augusto da Rosa and Mr. Samuel Macomber Churn succeeded in getting the operation rights of the Vibro Piling System in Hong Kong and the Vibro Piling Company Limited was founded. In 1964 the Company?s name was changed to Vibro Piling and International Foundation Company Limited and was later changed to Vibro (H.K.) Limited in 1967, which it remains to this day.
