BROAN-NUTONE LAUNCHES 60-STOP NATIONWIDE ULTRA PRO CHALLENGE CONTRACTOR COMPETITION

Dozens of contractors at each tour stop, including locations in major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York, will compete to install an ULTRA Fan in the quickest time, while earning recommended ULTRA Pro contractor status.

HARTFORD, Wis., August 15, 2013 - Broan-NuTone, the leader in residential ventilation, kicked off the ULTRA Pro Challenge last week in Milwaukee, Wis. The 60-stop nationwide tour, which will conclude on November 19, 2013, in Indio, Calif., gives contractors across the country hands-on experience with the ULTRA Ventilation Fans, a revolutionary bathroom ventilation product that installs up to 60 percent faster in retrofits and up to 20 percent faster in new construction than comparable fans, increasing contractors' profitability.


Dozens of contractors at each tour stop, including locations in major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York, will compete to install an ULTRA Fan in the quickest time, while earning recommended ULTRA Pro contractor status. The events, which are open exclusively to contractors, are hosted by loyal Broan-NuTone distributors.

The fastest contractor at each location will receive a $500 Cabela's gift certificate. At the conclusion of the ULTRA Pro Challenge, the eight contractors with the quickest times among the location winners will each win a trip for two to the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas in February 2014. The eight contractors will then compete at the show for a 2014 Ford F150 grand prize.

"ULTRA Fans feature the fastest, easiest, most universal installation to save contractors time," says Richard Palmersheim, group vice president, marketing, Broan-NuTone LLC. "There's no better way to convince contractors of the benefits of this product than to let them install the fans themselves. The ULTRA Pro Challenge gives contractors an incentive to experience first-hand the ease of this installation."

"We're dedicated to helping the loyal contractors who work with our products," says Palmersheim. "We're so confident that the ULTRA Fans are the solution for residential bathroom ventilation that we want contractors all across the country to experience it."

In addition to simple installation, ULTRA Fans help meet stringent green building and ventilation codes. Homeowner benefits include extremely quiet operation, unbelievable performance and, now, the ability to detect humidity or motion.
