Henry L. Broan, in 1932, developed and manufactured a kitchen fan called the Motordor® Fan that provided quiet and efficient kitchen ventilation. His creation launched what is today Broan-NuTone LLC.

Four years later, in 1936, J. Ralph Corbett developed a melodious door chime replacing the obnoxious door buzzer of the time. His development launched what is today NuTone, Inc.

Both men started their companies with a simple product and a few employees. Each expanded their companies, creating revolutionary new products providing unmatched conveniences for homeowners nationwide.

Both were headquartered in the Midwest and both were quickly becoming global companies.While physical sites were expanding, so were product offerings with over 1,000 new products being introduced from 2003 to 2007 and a first ever fan commercial airing on HGTV, Discovery Home and DIY cable channels.

Today, Broan-NuTone LLC continues to maintain its headquarters in Hartford, Wis. and employs 3,246 people in eight countries on three continents. Other plant and office locations include Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, China and Mexico.

Why Us?
