40th anniversary post

In July we celebrated a major milestone for the business – our 40th anniversary! Ever since our inception in 1984, we’ve been supplying high quality natural and hybrid ventilation solutions to a range of sectors. Our product range has truly stood the test of time, with innovation at its heart and which is still going strong decades later.

We’ve successfully delivered some high-profile projects over the years including the V & A Museum, OVO Hydro Centre, Sky ‘Believe in Better’ Building, WestQuay Watermark Leisure Quarter and more recently the new Isle of Man ferry terminal. We have also helped to naturally ventilate hundreds of schools, colleges and universities creating healthier environments for students and other occupants.

We take great pride in maintaining the highest quality, health and safety, environmental and energy management standards within our factory, demonstrated by our accreditations to ISO 9001, ISO 45001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001.

And we couldn’t have done this without our incredible workforce, some of whom have been with us for almost 40 years too, and who are firmly part of Passivent’s heritage! We can’t imagine there are many companies who can say that!

As the energy efficiency benefits of natural ventilation gain further momentum in construction projects, we’d love to hear from anyone who has their own experiences of using natural ventilation strategies over the last four decades – comment below!

In the meantime, if you are looking for a supply chain partner who is tried and trusted to help you create better buildings and healthy spaces then contact us on or call +44 (0) 1732 850770. Our sales, customer service and technical teams will be only too happy to help.
