Quality is our heritage and our promise—or we wouldn’t put the Hunter name on the box.
Truth be told, quality is more than a tradition at Hunter. It’s been the steadfast foundation of our company for nearly 130 years, and we don’t see ourselves changing our stance anytime soon—at least not in the next 130 years.
Sure, we could use less costly materials. We could cut a few corners by engineering less, designing less and lowering our standards on craftsmanship. But then our ceiling fans wouldn’t transform how you feel in your living space—and we wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.
So how does “quality” happen at Hunter? It starts with collaboration. From prototyping through compliance, our engineers, designers and R&D technicians work together to develop and test the latest ideas and technologies. (You might see someone from our design team experimenting with a new color in the paint booth, while a technician sets up some blade irons for the ride of their life via the “shake test.” This is just a typical day at Hunter.) Quality assurance is serious business, but our test technicians do get to have some fun in the R&D lab, subjecting our fans to a host of test procedures.
“When you go to someone else’s house, and you hear that telltale wobble or screech coming from the ceiling fan—that’s not ours.”
