Elta Group has announced a major expansion of its Asian operation, with the creation of Elta Fans India alongside the recently rebranded Elta Fans Malaysia, formerly Eltafantech.
The establishment of Elta Fans India follows the development of a strong relationship with a local ventilation specialist, Airovient, which had been the company’s agent in India for almost 9 years. The new entity will be run as a joint venture, with Managing Director Dilip Nemani heading up the Indian operation.
The move will allow Elta Group to further expand its reach across India, with new offices in Bengaluru, Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi as well as local manufacturing and distribution.
Visitors to the Ziehl-Abegg stand at ISH in Frankfurt had a whale of a time as the fan and motor manufacturing specialist shared the inspiration for a new development.
The main focus of interest was the ZAbluefin fan for central air conditioning control units and industrial ventilation, which increases efficiency by up to 15%.
Ziehl-Abegg’s development engineers studied the physical structure and characteristics of the humpback whale in order to transfer elements to the new fan. And the company’s stand reflected that input with a small cinema devoted to whale-watching, an opening speech from whale researcher Dr Karsten Brensing and giveaways in the form of large inflatable whales!
