Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch joined Broan-NuTone for official product launch and jobs announcement

HARTFORD, Wis. — On Sept. 23, 2015, Broan-NuTone, a Nortek Inc. company (Nasdaq: NTK), welcomed Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch for a special event to officially launch and dedicate the new InVent™ Series line at its Hartford, Wisconsin, headquarters. In addition to the line dedication, the lieutenant governor was also on-site to speak about the importance of Broan-NuTone’s decision to onshore additional jobs at the Hartford plant.

The InVent Series is a major expansion for Broan-NuTone. With this expansion came the addition of more than 50 jobs on the production line and within other areas of the Hartford facility. Bringing back production from overseas also allowed Broan-NuTone to partner with multiple local companies in the creation of the new product line, expanding job opportunities and manufacturing not only in Hartford but throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

“The addition of these jobs is a boost to the Hartford economy and manufacturing in the state of Wisconsin overall,” said Jeff Mueller, President, Broan-NuTone. “These jobs make me proud to be part of Broan-NuTone and to dedicate this line to the associates past and present of Broan-NuTone.”

The launch of the InVent Series supports Broan-NuTone’s commitment to innovation and dedication to developing superior products that enhance indoor air quality. Broan-NuTone believes the new product line will revolutionize the mid-range ventilation fan segment of the market with its new installation benefits, superior airtightness and LED lighting, ultimately offering flexibility and performance in one hardworking line.

Following remarks at the event, the lieutenant governor joined Broan-NuTone employees for a tour of the production line. She also posed for a group picture to commemorate the dedication of the line.
