Xtralite part of VELUX Commercial - a new division under the VELUX Brand

Xtralite is now part of VELUX Commercial, a division of The VELUX Group. VELUX Commercial offers daylight solutions for public, industrial and commercial buildings.

Xtralite Rooflights Ltd. was acquired by the JET Group in 2016 and in 2018, The VELUX Group acquired Wasco, Vitral and the JET-Group and the VELUX Group became one of the leading players in the commercial rooflight market in Europe.

The VELUX Group is now integrating the acquired companies and building a new commercial division to further grow its business and achieve a market leading position in the commercial market.

The commercial market consists of two main segments: 

  • An architectural glazing segment, focussed on design, with architects playing a significant role in selecting glass or thermoplastic glazing solutions.
  • An industrial flat roof segment, which consists almost entirely of thermoplastic solutions, such as domes, continuous roof lights (CRLs) and smoke-and heat ventilation exhaust solutions (SHEV’s).

The VELUX Group

The VELUX Group has built its business on bringing daylight and fresh air into people’s homes for more than 75 years and has achieved a clear market leader position in the residential market for roof windows.

Now, the VELUX Groups’ strategy is to expand its business from the residential market to the commercial market, and not only bring daylight and fresh air into peoples’ homes - but also into commercial buildings.

Commercial buildings are all the other types of buildings where people spend their time during the day: offices, schools, healthcare facilities, shopping malls and retail stores as well as large public buildings and industrial buildings. 

A team of 1,200 people in 13 countries

Today approximately 1,200 people are working in the VELUX Commercial division. They are occupied in 11 production sites located in six countries, and in sales offices and administration in 13 countries; Denmark, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Poland, France, China and the US.

The VELUX Commercial product offering ranges from industrial flat roof products and smoke- and heat ventilation exhaust solutions to modular, prefabricated skylight solutions and bespoke structural glazing elements.
