Big Ass Fans first made its mark selling massive ceiling fans that spun slowly but moved astounding amounts of air thanks to aerodynamically friendly designs. The fans kept large spaces that lacked air conditioning—such as factories and dairy barns—feeling cool and comfortable.

After an extensive search, the company landed on Epicor ERP, which has proven capable of growing alongside the company.
