What's the MacroAir Difference: Innovation, Quality, and Excellence

Walt and Eddie Boyd

The pioneering spirit of MacroAir's founder, Walter Boyd, and his son, Eddie Boyd, is evident in their contributions to various industries, from the aluminum swingarm to the portable, self-erecting Jumbotron. However, their most impactful creation remains the HVLS fan, a testament to their commitment to innovation and improving lives. Eddie Boyd's philosophy, "Every product you invent should help to solve a problem," encapsulates their approach to every challenge they tackle. 

That is exactly what the two did in the early 1990s when the University of California-Riverside faced a unique challenge: finding an efficient way to cool dairy cattle suffering from heat exhaustion. Through years of research and development, Walt and Eddie invented the world's first high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan, revolutionizing air movement technology. By 1998, their vision had materialized, and production of the HVLS fan began, marking the birth of an entire industry.
