Hartzell Fan Acquires ACME Product Lines

February 10, 2010
Hartzell Fan Inc., Piqua, OH, has completed the acquisition of seven product lines from ACME Engineering and Manufacturing Co., Muskogee, OK. The seven product lines consist of a variety of types and sizes of centrifugal fans and nicely complement Hartzell’s existing centrifugal product lines. The new products provide a combination of new product lines or an expansion via larger sizes or higher flow and pressures of Hartzell’s current product lines. 

The product lines acquired consist of turbo pressure blowers, industrial exhausters, inline centrifugals, radial tip blowers, and airfoil centrifugals.  
 
Integration of these products will begin immediately and production will begin within a few months in the Piqua facility. Future expansion of the Piqua operation is pending to accommodate the manufacturing of the larger diameter centrifugal fans.  
 
“This announcement by Hartzell Fan shows how our local companies are growing despite the economic downturn,” said Michael A. Cox, chair of Grow Piqua Now. “It also demonstrates their confidence in our community as a great place to invest and grow their business.”
 
Bill Murphy, economic development director for the City of Piqua, added, “We are
fortunate to have a company like Hartzell Fan reinvesting in our community. The City of Piqua has been working with the company and stands ready to do whatever is needed to assist it in this proposed expansion.” 
 
Hartzell Fan is a leading manufacturer of industrial fans and blowers with plants in Piqua, OH and Portland, Indiana. In addition to manufacturing centrifugal fans, we also offer general ventilation fans, heating equipment, marine duty fans, and corrosion-resistant (fiberglass) fans.
