The History Behind Kelair Dampers
Kelair Products is a privately held company founded in 1987 by Jim Kelly, who had worked in the industry since 1973. In 2001, Shaun Kelly the second generation, took the helm and successfully grew Kelair. The company manufactured new types of dampers and accessories while adding loyal customers and Manufacturer’s reps. In 2016, the assets of Kelair were acquired by Matot, Inc. a 130 year old, fourth generation, family business, specializing in dumbwaiters and related products for the elevator industry. Today, Kelair remains a privately held family business dedicated to serving our customers with manufacturing and engineering excellence.
