Airvent Airconditioning & Ventilation was established in Cape Town in 2001 by Mark Rogers. Airvent focused primarily on the installation of air conditioning units for the domestic market.
As the business grew, Mark brought his father, Graeme Rogers, on-board as a company Director and Shareholder. Graeme added a wealth of business acumen to the operational side of the business.
In 2005, Graeme Rogers retired, and Richard Lurie joined the business as Director and Shareholder. Over the next 5 years, Airvent Airconditioning & Ventilation, moved into the contracting side of the industry.
In 2009, Airvent Airconditioning & Ventilation, signed its first Franchise Agreement with Janik Hendriksz, and Airvent Helderberg opened.
After a very successful growth period for Airvent Airconditioning & Ventilation, Richard Lurie left the air conditioning industry, to start his own new ventures.
In 2013, Chris Emery become the Group Financial Director, and Johan Reeder became the Contracts Division Director. They were both members of our existing team, and have been instrumental in the growth and success of Airvent Airconditioning & Ventilation.
Being an entrepreneur, Mark identified different business opportunities, and created an array of new businesses that fall under Airvent Group.
