Schaefer Industrial Air, LLC Named as Exclusive AirPro Rep for Northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana

We are thrilled to announce that we have named Todd Schaefer, President, Schaefer Industrial Air LLC, as our exclusive representative serving the northern Illinois and northwest Indiana region.

Todd has spent the past decade focusing on technical problem-solving in the industrial fan industry. In his roles with other major industrial fan manufacturers, he has delivered solutions to customers covering a broad range of complex applications. Including air pollution control, OEM manufacturers, power generation, pulp and paper, cement, steel, and other heavy industrial applications.

“Working with customers to develop solutions for their unique challenges is my sweet spot,” said Schaefer. “Developing that trusted partnership with OEMs and end-users is an absolute must in the industrial fan & blower business. There’s really no such thing as plug and play when you’re dealing with heavy-duty industrial fans, complex systems, and mission-critical processes.”

The Draw of Business Ownership

After years of watching the industrial fan marketplace evolve, and the year 2020 watching the world turn on a dime, Todd decided the time was right to strike out on his own, opening Schaefer Industrial Air, LLC and signing on as the exclusive AirPro rep for the northern Illinois and northwest Indiana territory.

“Having my own business has been a dream for a long time,” Todd shared. “Thinking differently about what’s important in 2020 showed me that there’s no time like the present. I wanted to go all-in on absolute reliability, customer focus, and high-quality technical solutions. I have watched AirPro’s impressive growth from the outside looking in for years. After seeing their equipment in the field, and meeting their senior leadership, it was clear that AirPro is an organization I would be proud to represent. Their commitment to building the best equipment in the market combined with a focus on customer service and innovation made it clear that AirPro would be a rock-solid partner that I know my customers and I can count on.”

Why Be an AirPro Rep?

We get a lot of feedback from our reps. They consistently cite our quality and reliability as their reasons for partnering with and representing AirPro. In recent years, they’ve also been mentioning our visibility and presence in the marketplace. Todd felt the same.

“I’ve had my eye on AirPro for a while now,” explained Schaefer. “For the past several years, they seem to show up everywhere, with increasing thought leadership and obvious reliability. As an AirPro rep, I receive great support when working through custom applications, I’m proud of the products we’re designing together, and I know that the equipment and service being delivered to my customers is something I can stand behind 100%.”
