Our history

Venmar Ventilation ULC was founded in 1978 by daring Drummondville entrepreneurs as a turbine vent distributor for prefabricated and mobile homes. Starting with twenty employees, its executive quickly turned to manufacturing of ventilation systems sold through a network of construction supply centres. The Drummondville company thus found its way to a very promising future.

Although the company was acquired by Broan LLC, a subsidiary of Nortek, in 1995, it has always preserved the dynamic entrepreneurial culture keeping its characteristic of its origins. Today, Venmar Ventilation ULC ranks among the leading North American manufacturers of indoor air quality products for residential use. More than 350 employees make every effort to achieve the highest quality standards. Innovation is expressed with power and motivation through the different product lines, such as central air exchanges, range hoods and attic ventilators. The acquisition by Nortek in 1995 allowed many investments in research and development, at the same time allowing the employees to broaden their expertise and evolve within a constantly growing company.

Venmar Ventilation ULC has asserted its leadership in the ventilation industry, establishing quality, style and reliability standards that have improved the indoor comfort of thousands of North American homes.
