Hunter Industrial, a division of the Hunter Fan Company, is partnering with Bogi’s Girl Gang Garage—an all-female automotive repair shop led by ASE certified Master Technician and reality TV star, Sarah “Bogi” Lateiner.
Girl Gang Garage provides an environment to empower women to explore opportunities within the welding, automotive, repair, paint and body industries through workshops and activities designed to make skilled trade learning accessible to females of all ages.
On May 16, the Girl Gang Garage female team installed one of Hunter Industrial’s XP HVLS (high-volume, low speed) series fans to help effectively move air throughout the entire garage.
“We are thrilled to experience the cooling effects of Hunter Industrial’s fan in our garage, especially as we’re gearing up for a hot Arizona summer,” said Bogi Lateiner. “We look forward to partnering with Hunter Industrial to create a more comfortable working environment for our women to do their best work.”
Lateiner has been a professional mechanic since 2001, a shop owner since 2006 and a TV host on Velocity Network’s show, “All Girls Garage” since 2012. Focused on championing women in the automotive industry, Lateiner led a team of 90 women to build a 1957 Chevy pickup powered by a BMW S62 engine that was released at an industry trade show in 2017. Lateiner is planning another build for 2019.
“We’re delighted to partner with Bogi to support more women in developing their skills and talents in a variety of trade career paths,” said Anne Brannan, Marketing Manager for Hunter Industrial. “We look forward to supporting Girl Gang Garage through a variety of efforts throughout the year.”
Hunter Industrial launched in 2016 with its debut product, the Titan series HVLS fan. With blade spans ranging from 14 feet to 24 feet, this HVLS fan offers a competitive edge when it comes to efficiency (consuming 50 percent less energy than other HVLS manufacturers), installation cost, weight and maintenance. The company’s the ECO series fan, is among the most lightweight and economical industrial fans on the market, ranging in diameter from 8 feet to 24 feet. The XP series fan (installed at Bogi’s Garage) is the company’s newest fan and is engineered to deliver year-round HVAC cost savings and the easiest installation features on the market to date.
