ABOUT IAP, INC. Providing quality fan equipment with dependable service Industrial Air Products, Inc. (IAP) was founded on the idea of designing and manufacturing blowers and fans according to customer’s unique requirements.  Focusing on a customer-driven approach is a novel way to do business in the industrial arena. Since 1974, IAP has supplied markets with quality industrial air moving equipment.  From design to fabrication and delivery with ongoing service, IAP is a complete resource for fans, blowers, and dampers. IAP has grown and changed over the years as our customers' needs have changed.  One thing that has remained constant is that IAP builds the highest quality industrial fan equipment on the market. IAP maintains a competitive edge with prompt order fulfillment, technologically superior engineering, excellent customer relations, custom design capabilities, and quick turnaround time on rush orders.  Innovative fan sizing and pricing software assist IAP's sales group's efficiency and thoroughness. IAP has earned an international reputation for trouble- free performance and consistent quality of its custom and standard industrial fans and blowers. IAP’s team of engineers and master craftsmen ensures the equipment meets your every expectation, and a network of more than 50 sales offices in the United States, Canada, and Mexico make it possible to assist our customers locally.  IAP has experienced sales engineers throughout the world.

ENGINEERING IAP engineering solves customer problems by designing fans and blowers that provide required performance and longevity.  Our engineering team is readily able and willing to work with customers regarding their applications. AMCA Registered Air Performance Test Laboratory The IAP laboratory is utilized for product development, AMCA check tests and customer witness tests. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) IAP uses stress analysis software to determine maximum allowable stress for new products and extreme applications. Computer-aided Design IAP utilizes CADKEY and AutoCAD design software to generate electronic scale drawings. MANUFACTURING IAP’s 65,000 square foot facility builds each fan to our rigid standards and your exact specifications.  IAP’s Phillips, WI facility employs approximately 60 factory and 15 office personnel.  Our entire company is housed in one facility with the exception of our sales office in St. Paul, MN.  Having our manufacturing and engineering personnel in one building assures that our product is built with the highest quality possible.

OUR HISTORY IAP Inc. is founded by Bob Theis.  Bob was a former fan manufacturer's representative and saw a requirement for custom, heavy duty industrial fans that were not being offered by his principal.  Having a background in fan design prior to becoming a manufacturer's rep, Bob was able to parlay his talents and experiences and formed Industrial Air Products (IAP), an industrial manufacturer of heavy duty customized fans. Throughout 1974 and 1975, Bob served as Industrial Air Products’ sole employee.  He engineered, marketed, and sold all of IAP's blowers.  Construction of the fans was contracted out to fabrication shops. IAP contracts construction for a 60' x 40' manufacturing facility on a former potato farm in Phillips, Wisconsin. By this time, IAP has seven employees.  IAP secures a contract for a representative office in Michigan.  This representative office is IAP's first manufacturer's representative. IAP continues to add representative offices and establishes a national presence with the addition of its first National Sales Manager.  This was the first major change in direction for IAP.  The change had a purpose of reorganizing the company from a regional job shop to a national supplier of industrial fan equipment.  IAP is unanimously approved for AMCA membership. IAP conducts its first national sales meeting in Wausau, WI. IAP begins to utilize computerized CAD as its primary design tool.  IAP expands its Phillips, WI facility for a 3rd time to over 40,000 square feet of capacity. IAP receives AMCA registration of its fan performance test chamber.  IAP hosts its second national sales meeting later that same year in Wausau, WI. IAP engineering becomes one of the first fan manufacturing engineering departments to utilize Finite Element Analysis software.  The software has since been updated and remains a current tool for the design and development of blower impellers. IAP receives AMCA license for the backwardly-inclined fan line. IAP releases one of the first fan selection software programs to the market.  IAP Hosts its third national sales meeting on the shores of Lake Superior in beautiful Ashland, WI. IAP expands marketing and is heavily present at industry trade shows and in print. IAP hosts its fourth national sales meeting, once again in Ashland, WI.  IAP releases a second major revision to its fan selection software program, FanPro, which is now fully Windows-driven. IAP adds sales offices in St. Paul, MN. IAP Hosts its fifth national sales meeting, in Cable, WI at the world famous Telemark Lodge.  IAP releases its fan drawing software, Fan Wizard, and fan pricing software, Fan Value. IAP is awarded a major contract for tunnel ventilation, one of the largest projects of its kind to date. IAP is awarded a major contract for wastewater treatment odor control equipment in Los Angeles County.  Besides two 1250 hp fans, the project scope includes a number of other fans, motors, VFDs, silencers, oil circulations systems, and numerous other ancillary equipment. IAP expands its Phillips, WI facility to 62,000 square feet capacity.  IAP hosts its sixth national sales meeting, returning to Wausau, WI for the meeting.  Major improvements to FanPro (selection software) are released and include the ability to select multiple fans and save them to a project schedule. While continuing to build its North American sales force, IAP secures more and more sales beyond North America with significant exports to Europe, Australia, Africa, and the Middle East. The United States lost one-third of all manufacturing jobs in the first 10 years of the 2000s and manufacturing sees a significant downturn in available work in the last two years of the decade.  IAP is not impervious; however, continues to provide quality equipment and service, sustains through the great recession, and is back to previous employment levels by the end of 2011.   The number of IAP full time employees is at an all-time high and sales are at record levels.   IAP expands its Phillips, WI factory to 65,000 square feet, expanding inventory by 200% as well as adding a sheltered loading dock and cold storage area.   Founder Bob Theis passes away.  IAP continues to grow, securing major contracts in the steel and dairy industries this same year.  They are both the type of fan projects that require adaptive custom engineering alterations to standard fans; exactly the type of work that Bob founded IAP on and would proudly tout.   IAP adds a second high definition 30' plasma burn table.  This addition improves overall manufacturing efficiency while maintaining the high quality standards for which IAP is known.
