About us

When Asa Phillips started Auto Ventshade® (AVS) in 1935, there was no way he could envision that, over 80 years later, AVS would be an industry force with an international presence. His company was built around the Ventshade®, a metal device that mounted above car windows letting fresh air in while keeping rain and bad weather out. This gave rise to the invention of Ventvisor® and the side window deflector category. As the popularity of the Ventshade® grew, Mr. Phillips’ son, Asa Phillips Jr., introduced the Ventvisor® side window deflector in plastic. In 1998, Lund International acquired AVS, taking it to new levels of success and innovation.

Today, AVS has become synonymous with Ventvisor® side window deflectors, hood protectors, and multiple industry-leading products that help you enjoy and protect your vehicles. AVS specializes in quality products utilizing TS standards with on-site design and tooling resources. Known for providing style, protection, and comfort, Auto Ventshade manufactures other high-quality automotive accessories including Bugflector II® and Aeroskin® hood protectors, light covers, moonroof deflectors, and more.
