It all started twenty-seven years ago with a man, a garage, a concept and a dream. The man was Tom Frampton, his garage was in Pasadena, California, his concept was to design unique and innovative ceiling fans and his dream was to channel his passion for creating high quality ceiling fans into a revenue producing enterprise. Tom’s first ceiling fan design, The Punkah®, transformed his dream into a reality and Fanimation was born. It was not long before Tom’s exceptional ceiling fan designs created a buzz and he realized that his one-man operation could not keep up with the demand. As word spread and Fanimation’s popularity increased, Tom decided to expand his business operations and relocate Fanimation’s headquarters from southern California to central Indiana.
Over the course of the next two decades, Fanimation evolved from one man and his dream into a thriving international business. Today Fanimation sells its ceiling fans to more than 1,500 retail stores and ships its products to more than twenty-three countries. By relentlessly pursuing a dream, creating a corporate culture based on family values, producing only the highest quality ceiling fans and developing sustainable products and business practices, Fanimation has become and will continue to be a leader in the ceiling fan industry.
