The Emerson Fans Story
Charles and Alexander Meston, Scotland-born brothers, started a motor company in the late 1800s with the financial backing of John Wesley Emerson. They invented the world's first brush-type fan motor in 1890 (a.k.a., the desk fan), and 5 years later, the Mestons introduced their finest invention to date: the ceiling fan. Named after Emerson, this invention was the birth of a new era in comfort.
Emerson Fans are also the proud inventors of the direct current (DC) fan, greatly reducing the amount of required energy to cool a home. Now, thanks to Emerson's innovation, many designers integrate DC motors into their ceiling fans.

A Fun Fact About Emerson Fans
In 1940, Emerson Fans was called upon by the United States Army to help in the war effort. Temporarily shutting down their fan motor business, Emerson Fans made over 10 million brass shell casings instead, aiding the U.S. troops. In addition to their innovative DC technology, Emerson seeks to provide a solution for almost any need by offering outdoor fans, ceiling fans with lights, hugger ceiling fans, fans with large blade spans and all of the parts and accessories you can think of.
