Founded in 1960, Dexter is headquartered in Elkhart, Indiana, with 18 manufacturing facilities throughout the US and Canada. Dexter is a trusted brand serving the utility trailer, recreational vehicle, marine, agricultural, housing, and specialty markets. We're an industry leader with a comprehensive product line that includes axles, brakes, suspension assemblies, and axle parts as well as vents and doors.
In 1965, Ventline was established manufacturing vent products in a 15,000 square foot building in Bristol, IN. Ventline became part of the Dexter portfolio in 2009, growing to today's 130,000 square foot facility still located in Bristol, IN.
In early 2018, Dexter announced a long-term branding strategy for its many acquired companies, transitioning those brands, including Ventline, to Dexter branded products. This new brand structure brings clarity, making it easier to navigate the diverse product offering.
