A new factory for an expanding Telford company was today officially opened by Telford MP David Wright.

Mr Wright cut the ribbon at Air Systems’ new factory on Stafford Park and met three of the firm’s apprentices. He said he was pleased to see the company continuing to grow and praised bosses for investing time and money into apprentices.

The Air Systems Group is a family-owned business based in Telford which was started by managing director Bill Cooper.

The firm has moved from its old premises nearby to accommodate new parts of the business, including Manx Trophies which was taken on last year.

Mr Cooper was born and raised in Dawley, and served his apprenticeship with GKN before starting the business in 1989.

Mr Wright said: “I am always pleased to see local companies doing well, but it is especially good news to see a local Dawley lad doing so much for our town by investing locally and creating jobs.

“The Air Systems Group is a great example of how firms in Telford are innovative, forward looking and dependable and I want to pay a special tribute to Bill Cooper and his team for their hard work in supporting local industry and investing in apprenticeships.”


Mr Cooper said: “We are delighted that David Wright could join us to celebrate the opening of our new factory, but also to meet with our apprentices.

“We believe in investing in our staff and our apprentices are an example others.

“We are a local company with a national reputation and being based in the centre of Telford at Stafford Park is ideal for us.

“It allows us to give our customers the very best service, often with same day deliveries.

“With over 100 years combined technical experience within the pneumatic industry, the Air Systems team prides itself in its ability to come up with bespoke solutions, for new equipment, or better productivity of existing production lines and methods.

“Over the years, and largely thanks to its trusted status among its clients, the business expanded into plastics, industrial engraving and sign making.

“The purchase of the Manx Trophies brand in the summer meant that new premises was needed to house a new showroom and production areas.”

The firm is best known for making plumbing fittings and pneumatic cylinders. Also part of the Air Systems Group are Manx Trophies and Lewis & Mason Plastics, which provides parts for industry.

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

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

Together we can make 2017 great,
The Air Systems Team
