About VES

VES provides energy efficient ventilation and air handling solutions to all manner of buildings across all sectors other than individual dwellings.

A well established manufacturer of AHUs, heat recovery, supply and extract units, VES also offers a huge range of site services to improve the performance of existing HVAC equipment - regardless of make or model.

VES was founded in 1968 by David Peters, in a small factory in Andover, Hampshire. In 2002 VES expanded the business and relocated to Chandlers Ford near Southampton. Here the business has grown further and established itself as a major local employer with a substantial turnover.

VES now operates from the following sites: headquarters in Chandlers Ford, a fabrication plant in Eastleigh, and regional offices in Manchester and Glasgow. As of late 2016, VES has opened city centre offices in London and Birmingham.

There are thousands of VES installations, mostly in the UK, but also in far-flung locations such as the Falkland Islands and Antarctica. 

Throughout its history, VES has maintained a personal, professional business approach when working with customers. Many customers have been with VES since its inception and it is that ability to retain customers and continue to deliver excellent products, service and value that provides a firm basis for on-going expansion.

As a family run business, VES has continued to build on the foundations laid over forty years ago. The entire VES team are committed to making VES the first choice for providing better air for the built environment.

  • Welcome to VES Ventilation

    VES manufactures a wide range of commercial heat recovery ventilation products for public, commercial and industrial buildings in the UK.

    "From the outset VES was more than just a family business. We have strived to ensure excellence in all that we do, from quality of product through to delivery and value for money. We helped pioneer heat recovery technology and recognised early on the need to offer alternatives to just replacing existing older units. These are just some of the many solutions we offer to meet the new global challenges that face our industry and customers today."
