To supply latest technology to Indian market Draft-Air has joined hands with a world renowned company in the field of fans & blowers namely Chicago Blower Corporation. Chicago Blower Corporation (CBC) manufactures many different types of fans and blowers. Their products are used in heating, ventilating, pollution control and air conditioning in various applications such as hospitals, steel mills, and processing plants just to name a few. You can find their fans around the world in, for example, the Sydney Opera Housein Australia, the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia, the Pentagon, and in Chicago on the elevated tracks with the CTA, atMcCormick Place and in the United Airlines terminal at O'Hare.
A defining moment in CBC history occurred in 1952 with an engineering breakthrough. We were the first fan company to design and sell, into commercial markets, a centrifugal fan blade with an airfoil shape. This new shape meant that our fans could produce the same airflow requirements as our competition but with twenty percent less energy usage…and they were quieter. The airfoil advantage lead to the twenty-one basic product lines we have today which can be manufactured in thousands of different combinations.
The company was founded in February 1947. What began with only four employees in a small Chicago factory grew so that in 1952 the company was moved to Franklin Park, Illinois where it stayed for sixteen years. CBC outgrew that plant and in 1968 moved to present location. We have so far expanded the plant twice and own enough surrounding property to expand many more times.
Their Glendale Heights plant is the center of CBC's operations where Engineering, Fabrication, Inside Sales, Accounting, Purchasing, and testing facilities are maintained. CBChave over 100 manufacturers' representatives throughout the United States and Canada as well as international licensees in twenty-nine other countries who manufacture and sell their products.
