Velux acquires Wasco Products

June 26, 2024  By Velux Canada Inc.

Velux Canada Inc., sister company, Velux America has acquired Wasco Products Inc., which will strengthen Velux’s commercial capabilities in the Canadian market.

“It will further strengthen our position in the commercial and residential daylighting category,” said David Briggs, CEO of the Velux Group Denmark.“Wasco’s commitment to continuous product improvement makes it a perfect match for Velux.”

Founded in 1935, Wasco has a heritage of innovation, bringing new products to market in anticipation of changing energy requirements and design needs. “The marriage of our two companies is a natural fit,” said Nels Moxness, president of Velux Canada.

“We both have a vision for creating happy and healthy workplaces and homes with daylighting.”

This acquisition may have come as a surprise considering the recent expansion of the Velux manufacturing facilities in the United States. But the impact on Canada is extremely positive.  “The addition of existing Wasco manufacturing facilities in Wells, Maine, and Reno, Nevada, both of which are near our major markets in Canada enables us to provide quicker delivery to our customers,” said Moxness.

“Wasco also specializes in a variety of skylight systems that are not part of the VELUX product range, so we are excited to offer our customers more diversity.”
