Broan-NuTone Launches
2014 ULTRA Pro™ Challenge Tour



Broan-NuTone®, the leading manufacturer of residential ventilation products, has crowned the overall winner of the 2013 ULTRA Pro Challenge – a nationwide competition among contractors to install an ULTRA™ Ventilation Fan in the fastest time. The top eight contractors from across the country battled against one another at the 2014 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas for the title of “ULTRA Pro” and the grand prize,
a 2014 Ford F-150 pick-up truck.

Jared Stork with RTJ Electric, Fairbury, Ill., completed the Challenge in a mere four minutes and 14 seconds and was declared the nationwide winner.

“We developed the ULTRA Fan to make contractors’ lives easier — plain and simple,” says Richard Palmersheim, group vice president, marketing, Broan-NuTone. “We knew the fans were going to save time upfront, but participants of the ULTRA Pro Challenge far exceeded our expectations for quick installation. The final times were astonishing.”

The remaining seven finalists who competed in the Challenge were Burton Morris, Hyannis, Mass., Jeremy Johnson, Danbury, Conn., Dennis Tetzloff, Anaheim, Calif., Ricardo Mercado, Escondido, Calif., Jim Mitchell, Folsom, Pa., Joe Lareau, Las Vegas and
Noe Lopez, Carpinteria, Calif.

Danny Lipford, host of “Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford,” emceed the final event. “It was an honor to be a part of the ULTRA Pro Challenge and to announce the final winner,” Lipford said. “It’s nice to know that now there is a product out there that does it all; the ULTRA Fan saves time, money and stress. What more could you ask for?”

Broan-NuTone is hosting the ULTRA Pro Challenge again this year. The 2014 tour includes around 120 events nationwide, doubling the locations from 2013. A complete list of 2014 Challenge locations is posted under Tour Schedule.
