The VELUX Group has been bringing daylight and fresh air into peoples’ homes for more than 75 years, and has achieved a clear market leading position in the residential segment. Now the time has come to expand our business to the commercial segment and offer daylight and fresh air to all other types of buildings where people spend their time during the day: offices, schools, healthcare facilities, shopping malls and retail stores as well as large public buildings and industrial buildings.
The VELUX Group’s first step into the commercial market was in 2012 when we launched VELUX Modular Skylights. With a clear strategy to develop a leading position in this market too, we acquired three daylighting companies in 2018: Wasco, JET Group and Vitral. These operations, together with our VELUX Modular Skylights, will constitute VELUX Commercial, offering daylight and fresh air solutions for commercial buildings.
Even though the impact and feeling of daylight and fresh air through the roof is the same in all building types, the products, and the sales processes and distribution structures in the commercial market are quite different from the residential market. To meet the specific needs of the commercial market, VELUX has decided to create a new commercial division under the VELUX Brand: VELUX Commercial.
