    RoboVent—The Leaders In Air Filtration For Welding Operations And Industrial Processes Back in 1989 Great Lakes Air Systems was launched as a distributor of quality dust collection systems for industry. Very quickly the focus was further defined, when a need for highly specialized air filtration systems for welding operations was identified. At that time the main issue facing the industry was the constant risk of fire in weld smoke collection equipment, ignited by the hot welding sparks inherent to the process. Great Lakes saw an overwhelming need for better technology and developed the first generation of its spark arrestance and fire suppression technology in 1995. The success of this new system positioned Great Lakes as an innovator and market leader. But that was only the beginning. From there other key issues that had plagued the industry for years were identified, targeted and addressed by the Great Lakes engineers. And an interesting thing began to happen. Due to the success of our RoboVent branded collectors, customers began referring to Great Lakes as “RoboVent”. It was only natural that in 2007 Great Lakes changed its corporate name to RoboVent. Since then, our engineers have developed newer, more advanced versions of our proprietary SparkOut® technology for fire suppression along with a range of air filtration systems for welding applications and other industrial processes. But the many technical achievements that RoboVent has scored throughout the years have their origins in our industry-leading air filtration equipment and systems for welding operations. Today, more than 23 years and 70 employees later, RoboVent has become a design, engineering and manufacturing company providing a range of products used in process systems at manufacturing facilities. What hasn’t changed is our fundamental approach to business, born from an entrepreneur’s instincts and a relentless work ethic. The passion to be the best by solving customers’ problems was the key. That philosophy continues to drive our company today. In our pursuit of excellence, RoboVent has established itself as the benchmark for industrial solutions across a broad range of industries and applications, with systems and service that have proven to be efficient, reliable and cost-effective. And our growth in new markets has happened because we realized that we are, in essence, an environmental problem solving company for process systems.
