Halifax Fan Trebles USA Factory Turnover in Year Two

The heavy engineering capacity of the new plant in Akron, Ohio, has enabled Halifax to produce custom designed fans from 9ins to 140ins diameter and subsequently, turnover in the USA has nearly trebled over the last 12 months. Manufacturing in North America has also won them a number of new customers in Canada, a market previously difficult to service.

Halifax Fan beat international tariffs by building locally

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. US built fans avoid this penalty completely.

Out with the old and in with the new for Outokumpu Stainless Ltd

Outokumpu were keen to develop current technologies that would improve value in service and were not just looking a like-for-like replacement for an excessively worn impeller. They wanted to have a fan with the improved ability to resist the dust, giving the benefit of improved reliability, performance and reduced costs.
