HOUSEWORKS IS PROUD TO BE A FIVE-STAR CERTIFIED REPRESENTATIVE OF VELUX
After the devastation of WWII, there was a tremendous lack of housing and commercial space throughout Europe. The founder of VELUX , Mr. Villum Kann Rasmussen, saw an opportunity to provide more space by bringing natural light and air into attic spaces through the roof. This idea led to the design of the first roof windows, which were initially used to convert unused attics into classrooms.
From those early beginnings VELUX has expanded throughout the world by providing ways to convert unusable space into the best room in the house. VeluxAnd today VELUX operates companies in over 40 countries around the globe, including in the US
VELUX first came to the US in 1975, with the creation of the first VELUX overseas sales and marketing company, VELUX America Inc. This was followed in 1978 by the establishment of VELUX Greenwood Inc, the manufacturing center of VELUX products sold in the US, Canada, Japan, Australia and other countries.
In 2001, VELUX Solutions Inc. was created to oversee the proper installation and servicing of VELUX products in the US. Together VELUX America, VELUX Greenwood and VELUX Solutions bring the benefits of daylight and fresh air into the spaces where people live, work and enjoy themselves.
