Expanded Orion Fans Facility Boosts Capacity

June 09, 2019 by Scott McMahan

Orion Fans has added an 18,000 square foot addition to its Dallas-based North American headquarters. With the facility expansion, Orion Fans says it has increased its domestic manufacturing capacity, enhanced its logistics capabilities, and further reduced product lead times. The capacity increase and shorter lead times will help customers and channel partners shorten the design cycle and simplify the supply chain process.

Over the next two years, Orion Fans intends to expand its labor force by 25% to support the expansion. The facility is expected to accelerate the development of new products that meet individual customer requirements in a wide range of applications.

Orion Fans develops and produces a broad line of ac fans, dc fans, ec fans, harsh-environment fans, fan trays, fan accessories, motorized impellers, and blowers. Orion's cooling solutions serve markets including appliances, alternative energy, automotive, electronic enclosures, HVAC, industrial, medical, oil and gas, transportation, and more.

"The new facility is the foundation for our long-term strategy to grow not only in North America, but globally as well. The expansion of the headquarters and Dallas manufacturing facility demonstrates our continued commitment to customers and channel partners. By integrating sales, service and support, Orion Fans is dedicated to enriching the customer experience by streamlining the design and purchasing processes," said John Knight, President of Knight Electronics.
