History of the company
On 17.03.1930, Wilhelm Cordes, Bernhard Cordes, Maria Krabus and Wilhelm Hupe founded the Ventilatorenfabrik Oelde GmbH. The company started with a three-man workforce on a workshop area of 200 m².
After its foundation, the company manufactured fans, ventilating and heating systems, dust removal and drying systems. Its customers were mainly the East Westphalian furniture industry and cement works. Today, Venti Oelde supplies fans and systems to almost every country in the world.
Venti Oelde manufactures at its headquarters in Oelde, North Rhine-Westphalia. The company has a subsidiary in India: Venti Oelde India Private Limited (see info box), which sells locally manufactured fans for the Indian market. Numerous field offices and representatives guarantee qualified support worldwide and ensure short distances to all business partners. In addition, a further subsidiary in China with its own production facilities is in the start-up phase.
Corporate strategy and business philosophy
Venti Oelde develops air technology solutions for customers all over the world so that they can operate their processes cleanly, efficiently and in a way that conserves resources. In particular, resource efficiency and environmental protection are playing an increasingly important role. Our aim is to offer customers the most economical and sustainable solution for their requirements on the basis of the best available technology. For this reason, our 247 employees plan, design, develop and build not only tailor-made machines but also integrated plant solutions and systems.
In line with the company‘s tradition, Venti Oelde acts in an entrepreneurial manner, with confidence and the claim to always confront and solve new challenges in collaboration with the customer and for the customer. Our employees are our most important asset. Through the interaction of a wide range of qualifications, flat hierarchies and great commitment, they form the basis for long-term success. Since 2000, the company has exported to 144 countries and achieved a turnover of € 46 million in 2020.
Product portfolio and areas of application
Our product portfolio includes: industrial fans, dedusting and process gas cleaning plants, exhaust air treatment plants, ventilating, heating and air conditioning systems, recycling and waste processing plants, and surface technology.
The company has two business units: Fan Engineering and Plant Engineering. At Venti, every industrial sector will find a special contact person with the appropriate industry knowledge. For the cement industry, Mr. Reinhold Mertens, phone +49 2522 75-1 84, mobile +49 151 42619071, e-mail , is perfectly familiar with the requirements of this sector.
In the area of process fans, the company has placed particular emphasis on wear protection and high ambient temperatures. Another focus is on the continuous improvement of fan efficiencies. For impellers running at high circumferential speeds, high-strength steels are used. Process fans have also become increasingly larger over the last 20 years, so that fans with impeller diameters of up to 5 m are now manufactured. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used to optimize the fans, reproduce fluid mechanical problems at the point of use, and develop proposed solutions. These are supplemented by tests in the pilot plant using measurements carried out on models.
The resulting solutions are innovative, efficient, economical and future-oriented.
