New Look and Messaging Refreshes Image and Showcases Company’s Offerings

LENEXA, Kan., May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — For more than 2 decades, Fantech has been researching, designing and bringing to market “ventilation solutions” that ensure better indoor air quality in the buildings where we live and work, and have announced today that it has launched a rebrand of its company. The rebrand initiative includes a new visual identity and a new tagline: simply better(TM).

“At this milestone, we’re renewing our brand promise, and we’re raising a new brand standard that brings this promise to life,” said Rick Caldwell, Director of Marketing, Systemair / Fantech. “Our new branding speaks to our core principles as a company dedicated to the HVAC/R industry. With the combination of our innovative ventilation solutions, our knowledgeable team of experts, and our well-established best practices, we are able to deliver high-quality standardized ventilation products that are simple, robust and easy to choose, install, maintain and use.”

The company’s new logo and typeface set it apart from competitors and reflect its unique blend of sophistication, efficiency, and friendliness. A round, dynamic shape symbolizes air in movement, which is abstracted from a rotating fan wheel. It’s composed of a number of individual elements that form a strong, single and compact unit. Just like the individual brands and locations of the Systemair Group, as well as the large scope of the Systemair product portfolio.

“Fantech has undergone a tremendous transformation in the last two years and we require a stronger brand identity to distinctly communicate Fantech’s integrated vision for delivering ventilation solutions to our customers,” said Mike O’Loughlin, Managing Director, Systemair / Fantech. “As we embark on the next chapter in our history we want to leverage Systemair’s global resources in order to strengthen Fantech on its mission to transform the way the industry thinks about ventilation. Our new brand highlights the strength of our company as well as the quality of our products, and lets our current and future customers know that Fantech is simply better.”

The updated brand identity represents a significant shift in Fantech’s overall vision, look and message. The Company felt an updated brand was important to unify its global organization since making the Fantech acquisitions in 2008.
