With 6800 square meters this blank canvas of a factory is ready for our team to create new Engineering Masterpieces, this factory is our second fully owned in China, our existing facility in Shenzhen will remain as our Chinese headquarters.Read More »
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.Read More »
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. Halifax Fan achieved this through a combination of design, manufacturing and installation experience.Read More »

We at Halifax Fan have a love of art which stems from our passion for designing and building the most efficient industrial fans so we thought to combine the art of our products with that of some of the great artists. We have selected 12 classical masterpieces and merged them with 12 of our fan masterpieces to give them a unique twist.
Painted in London, the subject of the painting is Whistler's mother, Anna McNeill Whistler. The painting currently is exhibited in and held by the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, having been bought by the French state in 1891. It is one of the most famous works by an American artist outside the United States and has been variously described as an American icon and a Victorian Mona Lisa.
The work was shown at the Royal Academy of Art in London in1872, after almost being rejected. This worsened the rift between Whistler and the British art world and he never again submitted a work to the Academy.
The image has been used since the Victorian era, especially in the United States, as an icon for motherhood and "family values" in general. In 1934, the U.S. Post office issued a stamp engraved with a stylized image of Whistler's Mother, accompanied by the slogan "In Memory and In Honor of the Mothers of America."
