We listen

We listen to our customers and end users to help them solve their ventilation problems and meet their regulatory obligations.

Tightening energy efficiency regulations and increased focus on indoor air quality lead to increasingly demanding design criteria for our customers. We also strive to improve the end user experience by minimising noise, improving aesthetics and enhancing ventilation controls

We innovate

We continue to innovate products to meet customer needs and regulatory obligations, whilst considering life cycle and environmental impact.

We invest and spend 2.4% approximately of revenue each year to put ourselves ahead of regulatory developments, and ensure our customers have the best, highly specifiable products to meet indoor air quality and carbon efficiency goals. We can then differentiate our brands with market leading and market defining products and offer cost-effective quality through constant value analysis and value engineering developments.

We manufacture

We manufacture whilst remaining focused on sustainability and assemble high-quality, technically sophisticated ventilation solutions at optimised cost.

We have an asset light, low fixed cost assembly model which allows us to respond efficiently to changes in demand. Coupled with a disciplined approach to working capital, this results in consistently high levels of operating cash generation.

We manufacture where we can add value and flexibility, and outsource component manufacture to trusted experts where it is economically sensible. Our renewed dedication to Operational Excellence will lead to further cost efficiency and improvements in product quality.
