About Hunter

Long before there was air conditioning – or even widespread use of electricity – people around the world counted on Hunter ceiling fans for cool comfort.

The Father and son team of John and James Hunter created their first ceiling fan in 1886. The first Hunter fans were actually water driven. A short time later Hunter introduced an electrically powered ceiling fan. It was one of the first products ever to run on electricity.

Today, Hunter combines this heritage of 19th century craftsmanship with 21st century technology to create ceiling fans that are unmatched for quality, style and quiet performance. And nearly 120 years after the invention of the very first Hunter ceiling fan, their name and their products are still a comfort to millions.

 

The first and still the best

 

 

Since 1886, people around the world have relied on HUNTER Fans wherever ceiling fans are relied on most.

No wonder so many homes, resorts, restaurants, sidewalk cafés, movie theatres, warehouses, classrooms and more – from the Tropics to the Temperate Zones – count on HUNTER fans for cool comfort.
