Inspired by Harry Truman’s “Fair Deal”, Nathan Brown started a small business in 1949 out of his garage to bring custom heating and ventilating systems to the state. Since its inception, VHV has evolved to become the premier mechanical contractor company in the region.
As time wore on, Nathan Brown’s business and reputation grew. Despite financial setbacks as the country’s economy ebbed and flowed, the faith that Brown’s customers had in his business and the quality of the work proved a worthwhile investment time and time again.
VHV outgrew the garage decades ago, but the same small-business mindset has helped to keep our now large company as a closely knit group, working together in sync.
Today, our team is a dynamic force within the industry. Our innovative technologies and commitment to providing lasting solutions for our customers has earned VHV a reputation for superior quality of work and excellent customer experience that extends beyond the borders of our home state.

From the first employees to the current employee-owners, our company has grown a lot over the last few decades.
