Brief History of Robovent
Robovent started as a local dust-collector distributor under the name Great Lakes and has grown into a leader in the design and manufacture of ventilation and filtration systems for some of the world’s most successful manufacturing companies.
In 1996, it debuted SparkOut, a revolutionary system for fire suppression in weld cells and the following year Great Lakes began manufacturing its own brand of collectors. The RoboVent line of collectors hit the market in 2001 and soon after the company set up an in-house engineering department. The RoboVent dust-collection line became so well known that customers began referring to the company as RoboVent and in 2007 the company changed its name to RoboVent.
Between 2007 and 2011, RoboVent rolled out three major new product lines — WeldVent, Plaser and Vortex — and debuted the eTech digital controller. And also in 2011, the company set up headquarters in a 56,000-square-foot engineering and manufacturing facility, in Sterling Heights, Michigan. In 2014, RoboVent celebrated its 25th anniversary, and it was named one of Inc. 5000 America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.
RoboVent has established itself as the benchmark for industrial solutions with systems and service that have proven to be efficient, reliable and cost-effective.
