Moffitt Fan Corp. Celebrates 20th Anniversary

10/18/2013 - Moffitt Fan Corp. is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month. For two decades Moffitt Fan has been manufacturing industrial ventilation equipment including natural ventilators, wall louvers, fans, and more from their 50,000 square foot facility in LeRoy, N.Y.
Moffitt Fan has provided equipment for hundreds of projects over the years including products for steel mills, power plants, factories and more.
 
Moffitt Fan was established to produce fans and other specialty products, such as the MoffittVent, for sister company Moffitt Corp. of Jacksonville, Fla. Founded in 1961 Moffitt Corp. designs, fabricates, sells, and installs industrial ventilation equipment. Moffitt Fan was opened to accommodate the growth in business and to facilitate the increase in production. The Moffitt Fan team works closely with Moffitt Corp. on every project. The two companies work hand-in-hand fabricating custom equipment, designing ventilation systems, and engineering new products.
 
Factory manager Mike Andorka has been with Moffitt Fan since day one.  He was responsible for getting the plant up and running twenty years ago and still oversees every project that goes through the factory doors today. He undertook the challenge of taking an empty warehouse, previously used for auto parts manufacturing, and turned it into the fan and ventilator manufacturing space it is today.
 
In addition to Mike Andorka, much of the Moffitt Fan team has also been around since the beginning. Andorka stated, “Much of the staff has been working for Moffitt Fan for eighteen, nineteen, or even twenty years. We feel that the fact that many of the employees who came on board in the first few years are still around for the twentieth anniversary says a lot about the company, the team and the people.”
 
Everyday Moffitt Fan endeavors to improve its technology and products. Research & development of new fans, heaters, and ventilators has allowed the company to stay on the cutting edge and remain relevant in a changing world. Through testing Moffitt has created new products, found new ways to use old products, and improved products that have been used for years.
 
Moffitt Fan’s sustainability looks bright as they continue to manufacture equipment for Moffitt Corp., who celebrated their 50th anniversary two years ago.
