Blue Giant Announces Strategic Partnership with MacroAir

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Blue Giant Equipment Corporation is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with MacroAir, pioneers of the HVLS fan industry. Under the new arrangement, Blue Giant will be selling HVLS fans under the brand name MacroAir by Blue Giant.

“We are very enthusiastic about this opportunity,” says Jeff Miller, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Blue Giant. “MacroAir’s premium quality industrial fans are a powerful addition to the Blue Giant expanding portfolio of innovative loading dock products.”

The new venture represents benefits to customers on multiple levels. When temperature is regulated via a more efficient airflow, heating and cooling costs go down. By exchanging air every fifty seconds, air quality is improved, which can translate into greater employee comfort and higher productivity. The MacroAir by Blue Giant fans are engineered to run in reverse during the winter months, forcing trapped air down from the ceiling and distributing it evenly, resulting in a typical heat savings of 20% or more.

“If a facility doesn’t have a HVAC system, our HVLS fans can act as a stand-alone cooling system, lowering effective temperatures by up to 8°F across the fan’s coverage area,” explains Tony Pacheco, Director of Quality and Aftermarket at Blue Giant. “When used in conjunction with existing HVAC systems, the steady airflow can actually help reduce or, in some instances, eliminate the need for expensive A/C ductwork and diffuser panels.”

Both Blue Giant and MacroAir enjoy a loyal customer base and industry-wide recognition for innovation in their respective fields. Blue Giant began in 1963 as a manufacturer of dock levelers and hand pallet trucks, and progressed over the years into a trusted provider of easy-to-use yet technologically advanced loading dock equipment. MacroAir was founded in 1998, and its groundbreaking HVLS industrial fans were quickly acclaimed as a cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative to traditional fans and HVAC systems.
Jeff Miller adds, “Working with another company that shares a common vision and focus on customer success will help ensure a successful business partnership for many years to come.”
