HARTFORD, Wis., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 85 years ago Broan opened for business with a single product focused on providing quiet, efficient kitchen ventilation. Today Broan is a worldwide company that employs more than 2,500 people in seven countries on four continents. The product focus has expanded beyond kitchen ventilation to include a complete range of residential ventilation products and home comfort and convenience solutions. What hasn't changed in 85 years is Broan's continual push towards developing innovative products that make our customers' lives easier.
"What has enabled our 85 years of success has been the extraordinary team of Broan employees who dedicated their careers to helping families improve their indoor air quality by developing and manufacturing innovative ventilation products. From bathroom fans and range hoods to whole house ventilation systems, Broan is committed to consistently improving the lives of past, present and future customers," said Frank Carroll, CEO of Broan. "We are continuing to expand here in Hartford with the opening of our newly expanded warehouse that will be fully operational by spring 2018. We are dedicated to growing our business in the city that has been home for generations."
Broan employs approximately 800 people in Hartford, and continues to invest in the community with the multiple improvements in the plant and the doubling of our warehouse. Our focus has always been on the end customer and our distribution partner's needs for the highest quality product delivered efficiently and effectively. The result? Most of our critical metrics have improved by at least 30%.
