No matter how many times the story about the company starting in a garage is told, it never loses its power. Fanimation started in Tom Frampton's garage in Pasadena, California. Tom wanted to make a business of selling high-quality ceiling fans. It wasn't long before demand outpaced his supply. Tom moved his headquarters to central Indiana and expanded his operation. Fanimation now employs over 110 employees and maintains a presence in 23 countries.
