About Captive Aire

Captive Aire, the nation’s largest leading manufacturer of commercial kitchen ventilation, was started over 30 years ago in a one-room facility. As one of the fastest growing private companies, the industry’s innovator has evolved from a one-room office into a network of over 70 sales offices and six dedicated manufacturing plants. Their growth can easily be attributed to their dedication to quality customer service, faster lead times and competitive pricing. Continually voted “Best in Class” by industry dealers in Foodservice Equipment & Supplies magazine, this leader in commercial ventilation has a track record that no one can compete with.
