Custom Architectural

A story that starts from humble beginnings, Aluvent was formed in 1987 by Mr G. Berg and was initially named Alberg Aluminium. Alberg Aluminium established itself as a well-known local aluminium wholesaler, providing hardware for the glass and aluminium trade throughout the 90s.

After a successful decade of trading, Alberg Aluminium was purchased by Mr G. Van Eeden and Mr S. Kennard in the year 2000 and was renamed to the term we know and trust today, Aluvent (Pty) Ltd. Aluvent, deriving from two words: aluminium and ventilation, was an apt name for the company as the immediate focus was specializing in aluminium ventilation solutions. Initial products included pull handles, fixed louvres and adjustable glass louvres.

Fast forward five years, in the Spring of 2005, Aluvent was bought over by two new owners, named Mrs T. Kennard and Mr P. Kruger, who subsequently developed the shutter range, adding a significant new service offering to an already well-established business. The product range now included aluminium fixed and adjustable shutters, glass louvres, fixed blade louvres, pergolas, and sunscreens.

In 2012, the Vestack Group took ownership of Aluvent and amalgamated its effort allowing for a wider product offering to the market and naturally expanding the footprint of both Aluvent and the Vestack Group of Companies.

As Aluvent has its own Manufacturing Department, the Team is involved with the design and planning of shutters and bespoke steel pieces from conceptualization through to execution and can therefore problem solve and advise from the beginning of a project, ensuring seamless manufacturing and installation, as well as minimize any complications that can occur. Client satisfaction is a key value at Aluvent.

When the Covid-19 pandemic took the world by storm in 2020, Aluvent had to, like many other companies at the time, pivot to remain constant and made the decision to restructure. A new partner named Mr K. Shlorff took up his share in Aluvent. Mr K. Shlorff’s knowledge and expertise added another meaningful facet to the business and Aluvent further expanded its offerings to include customized windows, doors and additional bespoke steel creations to its already broad range of solutions.

As we turn the page on the pandemic, the year 2022 has allowed Aluvent to add additional units to its business structure and create a strong and enthusiastic team ready to elevate Aluvent, working hand in hand with some of the best architectural and building companies in the industry.

As innovation is core to our business ethic, and we have built a reputation for making architectural dreams come true, we invite architects, property owners and interior designers to Experience the Exceptional with us — Our Company Vision statement and the Motto we live by.
