Our Heritage

It all began out of a garage in Pasadena, California more than 30 years ago. It was there that Tom Frampton designed our first fan: The Punkah®. With a unique design and innovative approach, this fan launched what is today Fanimation. Tom's passion for historic fan design and worldwide travel has inspired our product lines since our inception. Today, Fanimation is an international brand available in more than 1,500 showrooms in 23 countries.

The Future

As a family business, Fanimation is ingrained with a desire for innovation. Just as Tom redefined fans as a design element, his son Nathan, who now leads Fanimation, is leveraging technology and sustainability to transform fans once again. Fanimation offers a wide selection of Energy Star rated ceiling fans and implements energy efficient practices in its warehouse operations, including the use of recycled materials in product packaging and energy efficient lighting throughout the shipping facility. Additionally, many of today's Fanimation designs incorporate technology for remote control and other convenience features.

Our Promise

We are personally vested in every product we sell. That's because Fanimation is more than a business to us. It is part of who we are and what we believe in. We create the highest quality fans on the market — fans we're proud to put our name on. We place our trust in our superior designs and in our innovative engineering and manufacturing processes. If you experience anything less, we'll work to change your experience.

Antique Fan Museum

The design, engineering and manufacturing of fans is the perfect blend of an age-old craft and modern technological advances. No where is the evolution of this more beautifully illustrated than in our Antique Fan Museum. You'll be able to see how we bring together antique designs and twenty-first century control and convenience to put Fanimation fans in a league of their own.
