Hartzell Fan Inc. acquired seven product lines from ACME Engineering and Manufacturing Co., Muskogee, Okla. The product lines acquired consist of turbo pressure blowers, industrial exhausters, inline centrifugals, radial tip blowers and airfoil centrifugals. According to Piqua, Ohio-based Hartzell, the lines include many sizes of centrifugal fans that complement the company’s existing centrifugal product lines. The new products represent completely new product lines or expansion via larger sizes or higher flow and pressures of Hartzell's current product lines.
Integration of these products will begin immediately, and production will begin within a few months in the Piqua facility. Future expansion of the Ohio operation is pending to accommodate the manufacturing of the larger diameter centrifugal fans.
