came another name change, preserving
the acronym while acknowledging the
new product type: the Air Movement
and Control Association.

In 1963, AMCA moved from Detroit
to the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights. Not long after,
construction of a laboratory with the capability for testing a
high volume and wide variety of products was underway. The
facility opened on March 14, 1968, boasting 12,500 square
feet (1161 square meters) of testing and office space. In 1985,
it underwent a considerable expansion, growing to more than
21,000 square feet.(1951 square meters). The airflow capacity
of the largest testing space increased from 37,000 to 94,000
cubic feet per minute (17 462 to 44 363 L/s).
As AMCA's membership grew, so did the demand for quality
technical information. With a wealth of knowledge at its disposal
through its members, AMCA started a magazine in 2006. Featuring experts in their field discussing the latest developments in
air movement and control and providing tips and tricks for
real-world application, 15 editions of this magazine, AMCA
inmotion, have been published to date.
Perhaps the greatest example of AMCA's inclusivity came
in 1996. While it was exclusively an American organization,
NAFM sponsored the Canadian Fan Manufacturer's Association (CFM) when it was incorporated in 1945. NAFM and
CFM worked together closely, creating standards that could
cross national lines. This partnership with CFM was only the
beginning of the association's drive to collaborate with - and
then fully include - different regions worldwide. In 1996,
after working closely with the International Organization for
Standardization, AMCA added "International" to its name to
more fully reflect the global growth in its membership. In
1997, the creation of European AMCA
allowed the association to focus more
fully on issues specific to Europe. Asia
AMCA was then formed in 2011. AMCA
currently is in the process of formalizing
a Middle East region as well, as it
becomes more and more committed to
global inclusion.

history, its staff is finding a lot worth celebrating. The association has been proudly growing to accommodate the needs of
manufacturers and consumers alike, and it is expanding still.
Behind AMCA stands a spirit of inclusion that welcomes people
from all over the world to join it in fulfilling its mission: to
promote the health, growth and integrity of the air movement
and control industry.
