It all started twenty-seven years ago with a man, a garage, a concept and a dream. The man was Tom Frampton, his garage was in Pasadena, California, his concept was to design unique and innovative ceiling fans and his dream was to channel his passion for creating high quality 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 exceptional ceiling fan designs began to create a buzz and Tom realized that his one-man operation could not keep up with the demand. As the word continued to spread and Fanimation’s popularity increased, Tom made the decision to relocate Fanimation’s headquarters from southern California to central Indiana and expand his business operations.
