Summer Heat, Meet Big Ass Fans

Company partners with EAA to provide fans in Exhibit Hangar D

BigAss SolutionsJune 9 , 2016 - Visitors of Exhibit Hangar D at AirVenture 2016 will be more comfortable, as Big Ass Solutions, the parent company of Big Ass Fans and Big Ass Light, has partnered with EAA to supply overhead fans in Hangar D. The best part? They will be installed in time to keep guests cool at AirVenture 2016.

This year, exhibitors and visitors in Hangar D will enjoy vastly improved air circulation and comfort due to the installation of the fans. Big Ass Fans not only move air quietly and efficiently, but they can make a person feel up to 10 degrees cooler. This will help keep everyone cool and content on the most stifling of AirVenture days. Big Ass Solutions will be named the presenting sponsor of Hangar D for the duration of the contract.

“We’re excited to partner with EAA and attend AirVenture for the very first time,” said Mike Robinson, director of sales at Big Ass Solutions. “It’s a chance not only to support a great organization and an awesome event, but to show off just how effective Big Ass Fans are at cooling you down, even in a big-ass hangar in the middle of the summer.”

Big Ass Solutions’ unique name originated with the company’s massive overhead fans that bring comfort and energy savings to large spaces lacking air conditioning, such as dairy barns and factories. Today, Big Ass Solutions is much more than industrial — and much more than Big Ass Fans. With the insatiable drive to research, engineer, innovate, and improve, the company launched its Haiku line of residential fans in 2012, blowing away Energy Star ratings and earning more than 65 international design and technology awards. In 2014, the company released Big Ass Light, its LED lighting line, expanding its comfort, lighting, and efficiency solutions across all applications.

“We’re always seeking ways to make the AirVenture experience better for EAA members, exhibitors, and other guests, and one of those ways is making things more comfortable on the grounds and in our exhibit areas,” said Dave Chaimson, EAA’s vice president of marketing and business development. “We see this relationship with Big Ass Solutions and its quality products as an excellent way to upgrade our attendees’ and partners’ comfort and experience in Exhibit Hangar D.”

Some of Big Ass Solutions’ larger aviation customers include Delta, American Airlines, and United Airlines, though they have provided fan and lighting solutions to commercial and private hangars of all sizes since the company’s founding.

Forbes has listed Big Ass Fans as one of America’s Best Small Companies, and ranked them at No. 33 for America’s Most Promising Companies. Inc. magazine included Big Ass Fans in the prestigious 5000 list for the ninth year in a row.
