From Exhausto to Exodraft to Enervex
Timeline & explanation..... for now
|EXHAUSTO was founded in Sorø in Denmark in 1957. The
company’s initial success was based on the unique
concept of a chimney fan designed to be installed on the
top of a chimney to create the optimal chimney draft
for open fireplaces, wood-burning stoves and boilers.
The company relocated to its current location at Langeskov in 1963. At the same time the product range was extended to include roof fans. This marked the beginning of a significant development in the ventilation market.
EXHAUSTO US was established in 1990. With their location in Roswell, Georgia, EXHAUSTO US brought EXHAUSTO's chimney fan draft technology to North America.
The EXHAUSTO name has for decades been associated with both
ventilation and chimney fan systems.
In 2007, 50 years after it all started, it was decided to split up the company into two separate units to enhance service and development in both business areas: EXHAUSTO A/S and EXHAUSTO CDT A/S.
EXHAUSTO US, later changing its name to Enervex, moved forward as the leading developer and provider of demand-controlled mechanical draft and exhaust systems with the emphasis on USA, Canada, Central America and the Middle East.
EXHAUSTO A/S develops, manufactures, markets, and delivers ventilation units with heat recovery, roof fans, wall fans and box fans, control devices, cooker hoods, and a variety of other ventilation components for complete ventilation systems for the professional ventilation market. Their British subsidiary is named EXHAUSTO Ventilation Ltd.
EXHAUSTO CDT A/S develops, markets, and delivers chimney fans, control devices, and other components for controlled chimney draft for all types of heating units. (CDT stands for Chimney Draft Technology). EXHAUSTO Ltd is a subsidiary of EXHAUSTO CDT A/S.
EXHAUSTO A/S acquired the Norwegian ventilation company Novema Aggregater in 2010.
In 2010 EXHAUSTO A/S was sold to the Danish company VKR Holding and EXHAUSTO A/S and EXHAUSTO Ventilation Ltd is no longer associated with EXHAUSTO CDT A/S or EXHAUSTO Ltd.
January 1, 2011 EXHAUSTO US changed its name to ENERVEX
March 1, 2011 EXHAUSTO Ltd. was renamed to Exodraft Ltd.
MID 2012... As the dust settles in any acquisition or re-organization, Exodraft will eventually facilitate its own manufacturing and continue to provide the finest quality fans that were first developed in 1957.

|When researching the need for an Enervex / Exodraft / Exhausto fan
the web will usually help provide the most information.
Always choose a company that has the knowledge to back up it's website. Sizing as well as providing the proper voltage fan is very important.
Getting a "deal" on a fan with different voltage can be costly if it fails... even with a power inverter, the warranty may be void.
