Fanimation’s 30th Anniversary: Worldwide Begins With One Garage

FanimationLogo-colorThirty years ago a man started with a garage and a dream. The man was Tom Frampton, his garage was in Pasadena, California, and his dream was to channel his passion for creating high quality, unique 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 cutting edge ceiling fan designs created a buzz and he realized that his one-man operation would need to expand. As word spread and Fanimation’s popularity increased, Tom decided to reimagine his business operations and change Fanimation’s headquarters from southern California to central Indiana.

Since that point, Fanimation transformed 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. Tom has since passed the Fanimation torch to his son, Nathan Frampton, who has energetically pursued Fanimation’s mission to deliver imaginative ceiling fan designs. Under Nathan’s leadership, Fanimation has continued to grow its business while maintaining the family oriented attention to detail that defines Fanimation almost as much as its breakthrough designs.
