The Summer Heat Can’t Stop Yazoo



Summer is one season that almost everyone looks forward to.  The kids are out of school, vacations are being taken, the sun is shining, and the temperature keeps climbing up the thermometer.  However, summer can be one season that manufacturing workers would rather avoid the most due to the excessive heat and humidity.

We take great pride in our business and would be nowhere without our employees.  The safety of our employees is tremendously important to us.  We recognize that our manufacturing plant can get very warm during the summer months and we want our employees to be comfortable and able to continue concentrating on their work rather than being distracted by the heat.  Besides, comfortable workers are safer and much more productive.

Yazoo Mills partnered up with Big Ass Fans, an industrial fan company that specializes in cooling solutions geared towards the manufacturing industry, and installed 13 fans throughout our manufacturing plant in New Oxford, PA.  Big Ass Fans can span up to 24 feet in diameter, move air throughout the entire space, from ceiling to floor and wall to wall, including up and over obstructions such as machinery and stacked product.  This airflow pattern ensures that air reaches all corners of the building, maintaining consistent conditions throughout the manufacturing plant, and eliminates condensation and stagnant areas where product integrity is a concern.

Since the installation of Big Ass Fans, our employees have felt a temperature drop of up to 10 degrees and have noticed a better air flow throughout all departments in the plant.  Not only has Big Ass Fans helped lower the temperature in our manufacturing plant and decreased our utility costs, but it has also provided comfort and energy savings to our ever-growing business.
