Howden Cooling Fans and Cooling Tower Resources (CTR) have entered into a distribution agreement where CTR serves as a stocking supplier of cooling fans at its Baytown, Texas-based distribution center.

Citing the need for quick response during events such as hurricanes and other unexpected outages, CTR will have Howden cooling fans in stock and ready to ship within hours rather than weeks.

“We recognize the value of immediate response when there is an unexpected disruption at one of our customers' plants, and this clearly fits our business model with respect to the customers we serve and their emergency preparedness programs” says Brad Pirrung, manager of operations at CTR.

Howden Cooling Fans is headquartered in Hengelo, The Netherlands.
