Hartford-based company recognized with coveted ‘Visionary’ distinction


HARTFORD, Wis., (Jan. 27, 2015) – Broan-NuTone®, the leading manufacturer of residential ventilation products, has been awarded the 2014 International Service Excellence Award in the Visionary category from the Customer Service Institute of America. This is the third consecutive year the company has been recognized, but it marks the company’s first win in the Visionary category.

“As a company, Broan-NuTone is committed to exceeding expectations – both internally and externally,” said Dick Palmersheim, group vice president, marketing, Broan-NuTone LLC. “This level of service doesn’t just start at purchase, but rather the moment our product category is part of the consideration set. We take a lot of pride in the fact that we continue to satisfy customer needs well after they’ve selected Broan-NuTone.”   


Broan-NuTone’s leadership in customer service is demonstrated through the following initiatives:

  • Product Review Process – Allows customers to share thoughts online about products and rate overall performance on a scale of one to five stars.
  • Codekey™, Make-Up Air and Attic Ventilation Selector Tools – Helps contractors and end-users select the proper ventilation solutions for their needs.
