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.

Engineering Masterpieces

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.

The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí

Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí was born in Catalonia, Spain in 1904 and died in 1989. His output of writing, films and art was prodigious and he was a skilled draftsman best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work.

This picture, The Persistence of Memory, painted in 1931, is better known simply as ‘melting clocks’ and epitomizes Dalí's theory of "softness" and "hardness" in a dream state. One interpretation suggests that Dalí was incorporating an understanding of the world introduced by Albert Einstein's groundbreaking Theory of Special Relativity, a new and revolutionary idea in the culture of the 1930s.

Dali shows the clocks melting away and thus losing their power and stability over the world around them. Through his melting clocks, Salvador Dali might be saying that simple machines like wall clocks and pocket watches are primitive, old-fashioned and even impotent in a post-Einstein world.
