Our History

Nearly a century of quality air-moving history

Since 1921, Gast Manufacturing, Inc. has been a leader in the design and manufacturing of quality air-moving products.  We specialize in offering cost effective solutions for a wide variety of industries including industrial manufacturing, healthcare, and environmental cleanup applications.

Our Corporate Umbrella
