vertically integrated manufacturing which enables our North American customers to repeat, in season, with prompt delivery response;
all of the patented cooling fans and heaters which Seabreeze manufactures are renowned for

has achieved 100% fulfillment with all national and regional customers.
Seabreeze Electric Corporation is an established brand name in Canada with over fifty years of manufacturing experience. 100% Canadian-owned, the Company was founded in 1945. From the
outset, when Seabreeze began manufacturing phonograph motors in Toronto, the Company has consistently demonstrated its ability to develop and market seasonal consumer products of superior quality, innovative design and unrivalled performance.
Over the last half century, Seabreeze has gained manufacturing expertise in the following products:
fractional horsepower A/C motors, both two and four pole;
portable electric fans and fan heaters;
hi-fi equipment, including reel-to-reel, cassette tape recorders and automatic record changers under the "Seabreeze" brand, as well as for OEM accounts such as RCA, GE Motorola and Westinghouse;
With the demise of consumer electronic manufacturing in North America, Seabreeze restructured its
operations to concentrate on home comfort products. Advances in flame retardant resins have allowed the Company to develop precision components which take advantage of this technology. A significant investment in machinery, equipment and tooling is required to produce these products.
In order to avoid obsolescence, Seabreeze has developed and patented a family of seasonal products
which are functional, of excellent quality and possess unique consumer benefits. The Company is one of the most vertically integrated manufacturers in North America, producing the two and four pole motors which equip both cooling fans, as well as the heating elements for its heater fans. All coil winding, injection moulding, punch press and final assembly operations are performed in-house.
Seabreeze's assortment of patented seasonal products now includes:
"Off the Wall", North America's only 1500 watt cord free wall mount heater fan, with patented auxiliary receptacle and automatic safety interlock;
"Turbo-Aire", North America's first aerodynamic air cooling system, delivering over 11,000 CFM of air per minute, uses less than 100 watts of energy and is whisper quiet on all three speeds;
"Heat Sweep", North America's only 1500 watt pulse action heater fan which spreads a curtain of warmth across a room 45 times per minute to warm an entire living space room more quickly than conventional oscillating or straight blow heaters;
"Cool Sweep", North America's first "childproof" pulse action cooling fan with four enclosed
louvres and no external moving parts; "Cool Sweep" is the only oscillating fan available which can be used as a desk top, wall mount or hassock style to maximize air distribution;
Seabreeze currently employs fifty full-time employees in its modern 25,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The Company has the capacity to produce over 40,000 finished units per month on one shift.
