​Howden is an industry leader

Howden American Fan Company was founded in July 1969, for the initial purpose of furnishing cast aluminum blowers to the United States OEM Marketplace. The company thrived, expanded the product offering and moved to larger facilities six times during its first ten years in business. Throughout its history, Howden American Fan Co. has lead the industry in innovation, adding digital controlled machines in the 1980's and becoming the first US based fan company to go 100% CAD.

​Continuous innovation

After this, Howden has never stopped innovating; always pushing the envelope to meet the needs of both our OEM and End-user customers. Because of this innovative mindset, it is that Howden is now approaching the light industrial market with cost-effective and flexible solutions.

This approach allows us to provide our customers with fans that can be easily integrated into their existing or future systems through the use of cutting edge software, which allows us to deliver a high degree of customization at competitive prices. This way, our customers can enjoy faster quotation, easy ordering, and a high degree of design flexibility while staying on budget.
