Hunter Fan Company Enters the Industrial Fan Market
The inventor of the first ceiling fan brings expertise to the industrial market with the launch of the new TITAN fan
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Jan. 25, 2016)– After over 100 years in the ceiling fan industry, Hunter Fan Company is expanding into the industrial and commercial market launching a new division of their business, Hunter Industrial. The debut product from Hunter is the TITAN Industrial Fan, a high volume low speed fan, which debuted this January at the 2016 AHR TradeShow in Orlando, FL. The TITAN fan comes in 5 different sizes varying from a 14 foot blade span to a 24 foot blade span. With a diameter of 288 inches, the TITAN 24 is the largest operating fan ever to have been displayed at the AHR Expo.
Hunter created the TITAN fan with a commitment to delivering the most efficient total cost of ownership. The TITAN Industrial Fan offers a competitive edge when it comes to efficiency (CFM/watt), installation cost, weight, and maintenance. Using less horsepower, the TITAN efficiently delivers equal or better output than the competition. Hunter’s proprietary installation methodology allows for quick and harnessed electrical connections, resulting in a faster and less expensive installation process.
“Here at Hunter, we are experts at ceiling fans. We invented the first ceiling fans in the late 1800’s and are now bringing a superior product to the industrial market,” said CEO of Hunter John Alexander. “Our strong expertise and track record for innovation should allow our brand to perform well in the industrial and commercial segments.”
The TITAN’s Direct Drive ECM (electronically-commuted motor) allows for a more efficient, lightweight product. Because it’s 50% lighter than the competitor products, it can be lifted by just one installer with no additional lift equipment required. The lubricated bearings are “lubricated for life”, meaning the fan requires less maintenance and has a longer life. It’s touch screen user interface allows users to integrate to the their Building Management System (BMS) through industry-standard protocols. The TITAN’s innovative design also features fewer fan blades, generating airflow with better aerodynamics.
“Our direct drive industrial fans were designed with the Hunter legacy in mind,” said Jeff Bredeson, General Manager of Hunter Industrial. “The TITAN will outperform all others and may outlast the buildings they are installed in.”
The TITAN Industrial Fan will be available for purchase at the AHR Expo with first deliveries occurring in April 2016.

About Hunter Industrial
The Hunter legacy is not only about quality – it’s about longevity. We invented the ceiling fan. We build fans that last, fans that are designed as fans (not fans based on repurposed concepts like other big fans on the market). We design our fans with every person in the process in mind – from the installer to the owner. We hear from our customers how our fans are outlasting the homes they were installed in decades ago, and Hunter Industrial will be no different. After all, we have the legacy of our name to live up to.
Because we design and engineer our fans right here in Memphis, we’re able to stay at the forefront of the industry, incorporating the very latest
trends and technologies into our fans, then rigorously testing them beyond established standards to ensure a lifetime of whisper-quiet performance.
