Company Profile Request update info.
Deflecto’s rich heritage was founded on innovative and problem solving products. It was in 1960, in the basement of C.P. Meyer’s home, that he invented the first air deflector. His idea was to develop something that would help prevent factory compressors from freezing up. It didn’t take long to realize his new invention could have a major impact on personal home comfort as well. He knew that by deflecting air away from windows and from under furniture, heating & cooling efficiency and comfort could be maximized. Five years later, a clever Deflecto employee turned a magnetic air deflector upside down on a metal filing cabinet in effort to organize invoices. With that, the first wall pocket was discovered, opening up the office products market for C.P. Meyer and his company.
Fifty years and hundreds of new products later, Deflecto is the world’s largest chairmat, bicycle reflector and dryer venting manufacturer and a global leader in sign and literature holders, office workspace accessories and other air distribution products.
