2015 THERMAL RESOURCES:
Over 3 decades ago an Electrical Engineer left a secure corporate career to pursue an idea. Building on decades of experience solving acoustical noise control problems, Warren Kundert invented the fan speed controller. Three patents later Control Resources and its SmartFan® technology began earning a reputation for technically innovative and reliable controls. As customers began requesting modifications to the SmartFan designs the company found its niche designing and manufacturing custom fan speed controllers and alarms. Then motor and pump speed controllers.
