Big Ass Solutions Tour

Owning/managing organization: Big Ass Solutions

Program description:
It’s tour time. But where to go? Grand Canyon? We’re way cooler (seriously, it’s hot in Arizona). Hoover Dam? It’s big, but it’s not Big Ass. Get your rear here for the best tour in America. Walk our cutting-edge assembly lines, where we build the one and only American-made residential ceiling fan. From the largest tour bus to the family minivan, everyone’s welcome at Big Ass Solutions®.

Experience who we are and the way we work at our corporate headquarters. It’s the best way to get a feel for company culture, from the Monopoly signs on most rooms (including the bathrooms) to our fruit carts, custom motorcycle, ping pong tables and swag team. See where the fun happens, including engineering, design, sales, marketing and more. You can also check out our fans installed throughout the building, including some you won’t see anywhere else.

Industrial Fan and Commercial Fan Production:
How do you make a 24-ft fan? It all starts here. Let a veteran employee with thorough knowledge of how it’s done walk you through the process of crafting massive fans. Feel free to ask questions about pretty much anything, from what materials we use to how we handle custom orders for giant purple fans. The building even uses Big Ass Light™ LED fixtures and our BAFWorks® control system.

Light and Haiku Fan Production:
Visit the birthplace of our Haiku® fans and our awesome LED light fixtures. From assembly, hand-balancing and sound testing to packaging, you can see the care and quality that goes into each and every Haiku fan and Big Ass Light fixture. Meet the people who make the best fans and lights on the planet — tours are led by employees who know the process backward, forward and inside out. Keep an eye out for Big Ass Fans® installed throughout the facility, some with seriously cool custom finishes.

Students will learn about the inner workings of Big Ass Solutions – from engineering and production to marketing and sales.
