our story

1988 – 1992 – Balwyn (Victoria)

Universal Fans is a family business that began in 1988 as a neighbourhood shop in Balwyn, specialising in ceiling fans, owned and run by an electrician and his wife.

1992 – 2014 – East Malvern (Victoria)

Within just a few years, we (George and Corina) moved the business to Waverley Road in East Malvern, where it continued to grow from just us, to a team of 10.

2014 – Present Day – Oakleigh South (Victoria)

In 2014 we move again to cater for our growth to our current premises in South Oakleigh. Here we have a stunning showroom, large warehouse & spacious offices for our wonderful team of 18 led by our two general managers – Julia & Joel.
