How Trading Post Fan Company Got Started: Trading Post Fan Company may have one of the more unusual beginnings—it actually began as a vitamin store. After meeting Burton A. Burton, the founder and owner of Casablanca Fan Company, the owners of Trading Post Fan Company became enthralled with its fans and began using it as part of the store’s decor. “We had fans on the ceiling and vitamins on the floor,” shares Kevin Calkin, Sales Manager. Customers took notice and by the mid-to late 1980s, Trading Post Fan Company was more focused on fans than vitamins.
