Exciting Recap from Insight Partners’ Recent Nortek Facility Tours!


The Insight Partners team had the fantastic opportunity to join forces with MSS Solutions for an insightful tour of Nortek's state-of-the-art facilities in Quebec. We were delighted to be accompanied by esteemed attendees, including Wade Stout, Director of Pre-Construction; Xavier Parrish, Engineering Manager; Larry McWilliams, Regional Business Director; Melissa Gannon, our Branch Manager; Shawn Raymond, Nortek Regional Sales Manager; and Eric Norris, Nortek National Sales Manager - DX.

Our journey began on Thursday at the Venmar facility in St. Leonard d’Aston, QC, where we explored the construction of Custom DX equipment. The lineup included the EnergyPack, integrating energy recovery into Custom DX, the Ultraline and V-Cube series, and the V-Cube Slim, designed for easy replacements through a 36” door. Each unit demonstrated advanced features such as ITF construction with superior insulation, thermal break construction, customizable design, and rigorous testing capabilities, ensuring top performance.

The facility impressed us with its robust construction options, fully welded floors with washdown drains, and dual airstream units showcasing their versatility and readiness for stringent testing up to 12” SP.
