Harrogate company launches new beauty division

7 October 2012

Harrogate based company, BenchVent, introduces new beauty division to spray booth business to cater to the growing trend of spray tanning in Britain.

With the number of salons across the country constantly on the rise, and a spray tanning industry said to be worth over £100million, it is no surprise that one in ten men and four in ten women admit to using fake tan.

BenchVent’s Air and Beauty brand will provide the latest industry products and brands to professionals in the beauty and tanning industry via their newly developed, easy-to-use website.

The company, which commenced in 1984 as GraphicAir systems, first specialised in the manufacturing of air filtration cabinets for the education and graphic design markets. After being incorporated as Widespread Solutions later in 1994, they broadened their product range to cater to a wider number of business sectors.

Relaunched as BenchVent earlier this year, the company aims to become a global leader in the air filtration and extraction market.


Mike O’Hara, Managing Director of BenchVent commented:

In the past few years we’ve seen significant growth in all market sectors including graphics, beauty, industrial, home hobby, dental, medical and education.

With our Graphic Air website previously catering to all of these, we wanted to develop more industry targeted websites with more specific products.

We now have GraphicAir which provides hobbyist’s and businesses with a selection of industrial and laboratory fume cabinets whilst Air and Beauty will offer the beauty trade, from salon owners to mobile tanning professionals, with quality, reliable products.


In 2005 BenchVent was the first company to introduce a range of filtration units into the beauty industry in the form of SolarEx, now a world-leading brand in the airbrush spray-tanning sector, and available on the Air and Beauty website.

The company now has further plans to build upon this success in the form of more innovative product development and extensive export operations.
