About Zaward:

Zaward Corporation was founded in 1996 as the sole worldwide agent of Globefan Technology Co., Ltd., one of the leading manufacturers of DC fans that established since 1986 in Taiwan to provide major personal computer power supply companies with the best quality products.

For the efforts over the decade, the company has built her reliable reputation and gained clients’ trust on her high standard of engineering and well-developed quality control system.

As the company grew, it put together the thermal solution R&D team and started work on big OEM projects mainly from German and Japanese electrical companies. With full support from Globefan, the company has consistently met the strict demands of its customers.

While technology is progressing rapidly, reduction in costs are always called for. Due to market changes, the company has decided to promote their own products.

In year 2005, Zaward & Globefan setup the new R&D center; thermal solution lab in Taipei, Taiwan for OEM customerized project and for its own product development.

At the same time, the new noise lab and wind tunnel have installed in China factory to fulfill our research and development for high technology, more advanced products. Meanwhile to have the complete test equipment for more strict quality control and application purpose.

As you can see Zaward has been around for a good long time so they have experience in the cooler market. Lets see how there experience worked out for the Vapor 120.
