How Many Companies Do You Know...

How many companies do you know who have expanded over the last year?      Bill Cooper’s Air Systems group have done just that.

Set up in the 1980’s as specialists in Pneumatics and Process Control, the group expanded and diversified over the years, adding Plastics and Engraving divisions to their units on Stafford Park.

"We have always focused on our customers needs; therefore when faced with a product we didn’t usually sell, we stepped forward and advanced to meet growing demand" said Bill. What does engineering have to do with engraving? In industry, companies want their bespoke products labelled, hence the acquisition of Professional Engraving.

For over a decade, the group have provided industrial labelling and health and safety signage. With a growing reputation, the general public started to contact Professional Engraving for gifts, trophies and medals. When Manx Trophies owner announced his retirement the decision was made to take over the Manx name, with a very busy end of football season, local clubs started approaching them for sport kits, with personalisation and embroidery.

A new factory was purchased, housing an extensive showroom and production facilities. "There is a very big difference from buying trophies online to coming here. You get to feel the weight of the trophy, see the quality and receive the customer service you could never get online" said Keith Trubshaw, general manager.

SignArt is the newest division, becoming part of the Air Systems family at the end of 2012. Already supplying health and safety signage, the acquisition of SignArt boosted this part of the business.

"People are bemused by the range of services we offer" said Bill "but there is a solid link between the technology each division uses and more importantly, a common thread running through every branch of the business...quality of service!"

A recent installation of a Nitrogen generator has just been completed, at a customer of ours that packages food products. This, along with the pipework to suit, installation of an airline system, and a pumped water system for washdown, has proven that Air System Controls have the ability to tackle projects that meet customers expectations beyond their requirements.

A big thanks to our sales partner Ultrafilter, and particularly Kevin Morris, for helping us spec and supply the Nitrogen Generator.

The Bad News
2016 has been a tough year for many businesses, especially with the current exchange rates. Usually we have price reviews each April as our new catalogue is released, however due to an increase in purchasing costs - that are out of our control - our suppliers have had no choice but to bring this forward to January. We are working continuously to keep our prices to a minimum and intend to freeze them until 2018. If you would like more information about the price increases email sales@airsystemcontrols.co.uk

The Good News
Over the last few months, we have developed new trade relationships with manufacturers in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. These connections will allow us to import a wide range of high quality products with lower prices. If you are interested in samples or would like us to quote you on a particular product please contact sales@airsystemcontrols.co.uk

Together we can make 2017 great,
The Air Systems Team
