-Article emphasizes Robinson Fans' Innovation, agility even in tough economy-

Robinson Fans, a family-owned industrial manufacturing and engineering company that has more than 100 years of know-how in manufacturing industrial fans, ventilation fans and industrial blowers, is prominently featured in the Winter, 2010 issue of U.S. Business Review, which tracks trends and offers best practices for business leaders.

Robinson Fans is featured in the publication’s “Manufacturing and Engineering” section, where U.S. Business Review highlights Robinson Fans’ innovation and improved efficiencies, which have allowed Robinson Fans to survive the recent economic downturn and capitalize, as the article says, on “the resurgence in demand for fans in the oil refining industry.”

Robinson Fans is headquartered in Zelienople, with additional offices/locations in Lakeland, Fla., Salt Lake City, UT., Trussville, Ala. and Abilene, Texas. Robinson Fans specializes in building custom-engineered and custom-designed industrial fans for its customers. Robinson Fans prides itself on providing cost-effective solutions for each particular application – whether it is an industrial fan, damper, blower or exhauster.

In addition to the oil refining industry, Robinson Fans also targets a series of diverse markets – including pollution control and food processing, mining, pulp and paper, cement, chemical processing and power generation.

“We try to get the best sense of what the marketplace needs at any specific time,” Carl Staible, Robinsons Fans’ President, told writer Genevieve Diesing of U.S. Business Review. “We’re trying to be as agile as we can in terms of adjusting to demands and modernizing.”

The U.S. Business Review article also describes Robinson Fans’ attention to better serving its customers by installing a new enterprise resource planning system and embracing a more horizontal management structure. Improving efficiencies across the board has helped Robinson Fans stay competitive, even in trying times.

“We’ve been allowing the economy to push us down, and now we’re starting to push back,” Staible told the magazine. “We don’t anticipate that the marketplace is going to get turned around very fast, but what we have to do is find more sandboxes for us to play in and figure out where the opportunities may be.”
