AVT - creating the right environment

Onsite Examples
About Us

Air Vent Technology was founded in 1996 in order to provide high quality products to the Heating and Ventilation market.

Since that date the Company has established a reputation throughout the UK, undertaking many high profile contracts . The success of the Company has been, and remains, attributable to a firm commitment to quality and customer care.  Commitment to quality was reinforced in 2001 by the introduction of the ISO9001 quality management system. 

In 2007 AVT was brought under the Vectaire Group of Companies and has since benefitted from over thirty years' experience in the air movement industry, together with an innovative approach to product development (with particular regard to energy efficient products which have a high performance/energy ratio).

AVT aims to:

  • supply ventilation solutions which provide the best in energy efficiency, comfort and design for every segment of the market
  • ensure that our responsibility to the environment is a prime feature in our designs for ventilation schemes
  • that our solutions to ventilation problems also reflect a proper combination of cost effectiveness and energy efficiency

AVT has a highly trained field sales force, covering the whole of the United Kingdom and can provide quality local support with technical expertise on products.  AVT can design ventilation schemes from small to large providing a total, compatible package, thus guaranteeing a quality ventilation solution.

AVT has a manufacturing plant and warehouse based at Andover, conveniently close to the motorway system for easy access.

All AVT products are designed and produced in the UK to the highest standards.  Ventilation/heat recovery/air handling systems can be custom built to solve any specification requirement.
