30th Anniversary

Welcome to our 30th Anniversary Celebration Page!

30 Years Ago…

Air Components & Systems, Ltd. was formed in 1985 as an Ingersoll Rand Master distributor, serving as the region‘s leader in providing air compressor parts, services and equipment. We have grown into one of the most successful distributors in the country and now have 5 customer-facing locations and 50 employees. This year we are celebrating our 30th anniversary, which would not have been possible without our hard-working employees, supportive partners and our loyal customers.

Many of our team members have backgrounds in manufacturing and understand firsthand the importance of compressed air to production. Utilizing industry leading Ingersoll Rand training, our team helps companies uncover the most effective way to optimize their compressed air supply and demand systems. One of the ways we do this is by providing an engineering study to collect and analyze system data. This allows us to provide very specific recommendations for your system.

We look forward to serving you for the next 30 years.
