The Monte Carlo Fans Story
Hub Markwardt and Mike, his son, started Encon in 1996 and created Monte Carlo Fan Company as a division of Encon Fans. They were dedicated to changing the perception of the ceiling fan from a simple functional appliance to an attractive functional accessory. Monte Carlo became part of Seagull Lighting Productions in 2000 and is currently located in Riverside, New Jersey.
Why We Love Monte Carlo Ceiling Fans
Monte Carlo ceiling fans are available in a range of styles, the looks all tied together with distinctively curved fan blades. They're available in a number of sizes to complement any room, and with over 40 styles to choose from (including several outdoor fans), it's practically guaranteed you'll find what you're looking for. Their ceiling fans are extremely quiet, and several are ENERGY STAR qualified fans.
Fun Facts About Monte Carlo Fans
Monte Carlo has a tree planting program in place that offsets the paper they use to print catalogs and literature. After merging in 2012, the Monte Carlo Fan Company is now a sister company to Feiss, a manufacturer of light fixtures ranging from suspensions to sconces to outdoor lighting.
Noteworthy Fans from Monte Carlo Fans
The Skylon Ceiling Fan is one of Monte Carlo's most modern designs and is a highlight of the DC ceiling fans collection at Lumens. The Minimalist Ceiling Fan, a fresh new design from Monte Carlo, is also powered by a DC motor and uses an LED downlight to be as energy efficient as possible. Enthusiasts of extra-large fans will appreciate the Empire Ceiling Fan and conversely, consider the Micro 24" Fan for smaller space that could use fresh air.
