Tom Frampton, started to design fans out of his garage in Pasadena, California over 25 years ago. Frampton dreamed of creating unique and innovative fans that people had never seen before and thus Fanimation was born. With his first design, The Punkah, Frampton transformed his dream into an international reality. With 36 employees and 82 sales representatives, Fanimation now sells to over 1,500 retail stores. With a family oriented corporate culture, they continue to design cutting edge products which have been featured in Vanity Fair, Modernism, and even on HGTV. Fanimation fans can even be seen in the silver screen, Oscar award winning movie, iRobot. With operations in Morocco, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and many more locations worldwide, they have moved out of a small garage in California to a global enterprise which offers a myriad of fans, fan blades, and light kits.
