With the Fourth of July holiday coming up next week, we are proud to support American industry by engineering, manufacturing, selling, and servicing our centrifugal compressors right here in the USA. Manufacturing represents 67% of private-sector R&D spending and 30% of the country’s productivity growth. Every $1 of manufacturing activity returns $1.48 to the economy.*
Manufacturing in America has and will always be a sense of pride for our organization as we are currently the only centrifugal air compressor manufacturer that keeps our scale manufacturing within the USA to best support our domestic customers. This includes machining, assembling, and testing our centrifugal airends. Our offices have created over 300 direct jobs and 2,000 indirect jobs through our local supply chain of around 100 suppliers in 18 different states, contributing to the economic vitality of those regions. Supporting our US customer base are 24 factory-trained channel partners and four company stores providing rapid inquiry response and superior service quality. Manufacturing investments include expanding the size of our production facility to 180,000 square feet in 2021 and an overall spend of 77 million dollars on new machine tools and testing capabilities.
For over 60 years, we have seen the benefits of manufacturing in America and look forward to another 60 years of delivering high-quality and efficient compressed air solutions to our valued customers.
Happy Fourth of July, America!
