Our customers like our technical expertise, our honest, straight forward approach with customers and our ability to provide a quality service year after year’ We have always focused on the long term. Our aim is to work with customers over the life of their compressor system, help­ing them optimise their system as their business changes and grows. Our focus is on minimising the overall costs of their system over the life of their system. With the technological advances that the industry has seen in the past 10 years we have had to up our game across a number of areas to ensure we are able to provide the latest and best advice to customers.

  • New energy saving technologies such as improved electronic control systems, variable speed compressors
  • Energy recovery systems to improve overall system energy efficiency
  • Internet of things, Industry 4.0 and better control and monitoring of all plant and equipment including air compressors
  • High efficiency pipework systems, better and higher efficiency dryers and downstream equipment

With the changes in Health and Safety, and the drive for cleaner technologies and waste management, we have put great emphasis on developing Air Equipment to meet the requirements of our customers. This means we are in a position to support our customers no matter what quality systems they require us to work to.   Initially based in Flitwick near Milton Keynes we have grown to have outlets in Bicester, North London and Bury St Edmunds. We have grown through providing customers with excellent service and have also had the opportunity to see some growth through acquisition of other similarly focused companies. We now have a team of 10 engineers on the road everyday across the region. All our engineers are factory trained and regularly attend training on various aspects of the compressed air industry. We also have a team of sales engineers who are happy to come and have a chat with you about your compressed air system, what you want to achieve with it and to help solve any issues you may have with it.

Air compressor installation | air compressors | air equipment


The quality of your compressed air pipework is vital to having a good, efficient, clean supply of compressed air. Old pipework tends to leak and can create large pressure drops, absorbing power and increasing your energy costs. Old or corroded pipework can also lead to contamination of the compressed air supply. At Air Equipment we install all types of pipework depending on the application. However for most applications we prefer Teseo smooth bore aluminium pipework. It is our preferred product since it is light weight, high efficiency, guaranteed leak free, quick to install and easy to adjust once installed Find out more about the compressed air pipework by watching our short video on the different types of compressed air pipework
