VEL Fit is a certified installer of all VELUX windows serving customers throughout Kent, Essex and Suffolk. Since 1941, when the young engineer Villum Kann Rasmussen established his company V. Kann Rasmussen & Co in Copenhagen. His vision was “to make a skylight – a roof window – that is just as good as the best vertical window”.
In 1942 Villum’s first roof window was patented. He called it VELUX. ‘ –VE’, from the word ‘ventilation’ and ‘LUX’, from the Latin word for ‘light’.
Post war, VELUX roof windows proved to be an effective way of putting many square metres of wasted roof space to good use and demand for VELUX roof windows increased significantly.
Villum’s belief in a fair deal, high quality standards and ongoing technical innovations and improvements was key to his success. Nearly Eighty years on, VELUX is a household name and have a proven record of innovation and design.
