Durable Yellow Jacket® Named Product of the Year

The Big Ass Fan Company’s smashingly durable Yellow Jacket® has been named a “Gold Winner” of the 2011 Product of the Year Awards. The prestigious award from Plant Engineering honors premier products in the manufacturing industry. Yellow Jacket was selected for the honor out of more than 100 finalists in 14 categories.

Yellow Jacket, introduced by Big Ass Fans in March of 2011, offers vast airflow coverage area combined with quiet operation, low maintenance, unmatched durability and exceeds performance standards. Used in schools, fitness facilities and a variety of shipping and manufacturing facilities, the Yellow Jacket brings the innovation of Big Ass Fans to smaller areas.

“Yellow Jacket is a unique addition to our strong lineup of industrial fans,” said Product Manager Stephen Bird. “Like all Big Ass Fans, it shows the expertise of our engineering team and the rigorous performance testing carried out in our state-of-the-art research and development facility. We’re proud to accept this award for Yellow Jacket.”

In April 2012, the Yellow Jacket will be getting even better with the addition of an optional oscillator and a misting package that provides the same cooling effect as 11 tons of air conditioning wherever you need it.
