Said Neil Crocker, President of Schaefer Ventilation, “Americ fans are known the world over for quality and reliability.  We are very pleased to add this made-in-America product line to the existing Schaefer product line.  The Americ fan line allows us to serve markets that have previously been beyond our reach and to accelerate Schaefer’s international expansion.”
Takashi Dohi, President of Americ Corporation stated, “We are pleased to have found a good owner for our fan business and a good partner for our existing representatives, dealers and customers.  With the sale of the Americfan business, Americ Corporation will now be known as Americ Machinery Corporation, and will be more highly focused on our core used construction equipment business.”
