"Leaders in air flow technology." Beyond a marketing message- this statement defines Vornado's past, and charts the course for the company's future. The Vornado story begins with an inventor's vision to improve aircraft design in the early 1920's. Ralph K. Odor began to experiment with unique aerodynamics that increased the efficiency and performance of standard propeller planes. Vornado was founded on the premise that comfort should be constant, bucking the trends of oscillation and utilitarian design. That still holds true today with a broad range of products that enhance efficiency and keep everyone comfortable all year long. From 1882 on through the next fifty years the electric fan evolved, becoming quieter, more efficient, even oscillating. The fans that resulted from this era of improvements are remarkably similar to ones sold today. Except for one. A major evolution in fan design was about to occur. One that was actually sparked by man’s quest to fly higher and faster than ever before. Something that would make ordinary “fans” seem obsolete. It was the beginning of an evolution.
