As a privately owned company, AVP's key distinction has brought innovation to a relatively stagnant roof vent industry. Active Ventilation Products Inc. sells to distributors across the country like Beacon Roofing Supply, ABC Supply, Dave Carter & Associates and Allied Building Products, as well as major online retailers such as Home Depot, Walmart, Ebay, and Amazon.
The company is led by the original founders, brothers Martin and Ethan Kolt. It has maintained its privately-held ownership. As a result, ensuring Martin and Ethan unrestricted creativity in key business and engineering decisions.
Says AVP’s founder, Martin Kolt. “We have over 200 metal working machines, a full spinning department, a tool and die department. In addition, we also have our own powder coating system, housed in a 63,000 sq. foot building in Newburgh, New York. We are proud to be among the few companies who still manufacture and assemble products in America”. Says Kolt who remembers starting out with only a handful of employees. AVP now employs over 40 workers full-time and considers going to a second shift by third quarter of 2017. That is to say we are steadily growing to provide ventilation to all of America.
