“Vent-A-Hood” Limited is a shining example of the entrepreneurial spirit. In 1937, Carr P. Collins, Sr., a Dallas financier and founder of Fidelity Union Life Insurance Company, financed this family-owned company. Miles Woodall, Jr., nephew of Collins, was recruited in 1938 to manage the company. Today, his son, Miles Woodall III, is CEO of the company. The company moved to Richardson in 1961.
Vent-A-Hood was the first manufacturer of home cooking ventilation and range hoods. The first range hoods were manufactured in a house with a dirt floor in Dallas, and then sold door-to-door. The owners would literally go out and make a sale, then return to the shop to make the hood for the customer. The primary ingredient in the success of kitchen exhaust hoods is Vent-A-Hood’s uniquely designed “Magic Lung” blower system. Throughout the years, hoods have been improved, but the original concept is central to the design and remains unequalled in the field of ventilation.
Vent-A-Hood has developed an excellent reputation throughout the ventilation industry by offering a top quality “in stock” range hood, as well as handmade craftsmanship in their “custom” hood series. Each ventilation system manufactured by Vent-A-Hood is individually engineered for performance in addition to style. Company longevity and product quality have given the name Vent-A-Hood instant product recognition.
Currently housed in a modern manufacturing facility, Vent-A-Hood employs a highly skilled workforce to achieve quality craftsmanship. A national as well as an international marketing program includes an impressive roster of distributors, many of which are second generation. Vent-A-Hood products are sold in all fifty states, as well as Canada.
Vent-A-Hood has experienced steady and consistent growth throughout its history and continues to have excellent growth potential. In 2005 it enlarged its manufacturing space 50% to keep up with range hood demand. The company looks forward to a bright future.”
