In 1904 American Warming and Ventilating (AWV) was created as a division of American Furnace and Foundry Company in Bloomington, Indiana. The company began as a regional contractor that installed gravity heating systems. Along the way AWV became one of five independently operating companies acquired by Mestek, Inc. These companies manufacture standard and custom adjustable louvers and isolation dampers to satisfy most every need for intake control, industrial applications, and sophisticated fire & smoke control.

AWV took a leading role to establish AMCA Division Five (louver, damper and shutter group). They have a 5,000 SqFt AMCA-certified testing facility, and 50,000 SqFt production facility in Bradner, Ohio.  

Today, architects, mechanical engineers, contractors, and facility owners rely on American Warming and Ventilating to meet their ever-changing damper and louver designs requirements through product innovation and technological advancement.
