The Hunter Fans Story
Back in 1886, John Hunter and his son, John C. Hunter, created the first water-driven ceiling fan for the Tuerk Water Meter Co. in Syracuse, NY. In 1896, they bought out the Tuerk company and turned it into the Hunter Fan & Motor Co., that same year producing their AC-powered Tuerk Type A fan in Fulton, NY. As the years went by, the number of products grew, eventually including oscillating desk fans, pedestal fans, attic fans, A/C units, air purifiers and humidifiers.
Today, Hunter creates all of these products at their headquarters in Memphis, TN.
Why We Love Hunter Fans
Hunter Fans draws on more than 125 years of experience, quality and innovation in the design of their ceiling fans. These fans feature AVT for wobble-free function, the EZ Hang quick installation system and super-quiet Whisperwind motors. And rather than get set in their ways, Hunter isn't afraid to experiment. They incorporate technology into their fans that's unexpected and innovative, like speakers and heating elements. And they meet all modern design needs with a wide range of traditional, transitional and contemporary ceiling fans.
A Fun Fact About Hunter Fans
A water-driven ceiling fan? Before electricity came into wide-spread use, water-driven fans functioned via a series of belts attached to a water wheel outside the building. In other words, if you were in the desert, you were out of luck.
