The UK’s leading manufacturer of industrial centrifugal fans

For over fifty years Halifax Fan has been designing its own range of industrial centrifugal fans to meet the needs of industry worldwide. Today with factories in UK, China and the USA we can advise, design, manufacture and service industrial centrifugal fans from simple combustion fans to complex high temperature hazardous gas handling applications wherever you are in the world .

Covid19: Company Statement

In the face of the growing coronavirus pandemic, our global organisation with factories in the UK, China and the USA has allowed us to remain operational even when one of the countries has been shut down. After a 6 week closure both our Chinese factories are back in operation and the lessons learned from our Chinese experience have allowed us to better prepare if either the UK or USA factories are required to experience the same hiatus.

With our manufacturing presence and cloud systems we are able to continue to deliver fans and spare parts on a world wide basis (pending operational means of transport).

You can contact us via LinkedIn or our support email

We wish you, your family and your business good health during this challenging time.

Halifax Fan beat international tariffs by building locally

By manufacturing in the UK, China and the USA, Halifax Fan can avoid tariff penalties

Industrial fans are by their very nature, heavy, voluminous and largely made of steel. This means that shipping costs, either to the OEMs, such as oven manufacturers, who will fit them to their machines or to end users like the steel industry, can add enormously to the quoted cost. Additionally, shipping globally can add substantially to the price because of international tariff barriers. Fans shipped into the USA for example, attract a 27% tariff. USA built fans avoid this penalty completely.
