History of Aircom
Aircom was created in 1964 as an aircraft repair company. The company was sold in 1976, and began to perform general repairs and manufacture chemical sample cylinders. After another sale in 1990, the products and welding service focused on the oil and gas industry. In 1997 Aircom began manufacturing temperature instrumentation and shortly after distributing instrumentation. The business experienced steady growth through the 2000’s and in 2011 it was sold to three employees of the organization. Strong growth continued as the business began to operate with new product offerings, diversified staff and a new vision.
