An industry leader since 1965, Sullair uses its expertise to provide superior compressed air solutions. In 1968, after establishing itself in markets that use portable compressors, Sullair introduced stationary rotary screw compressors for the industrial market. Later, responding to market need for clean and dry air in specialized applications, Sullair developed air treatment systems for their compressors. Also in response to customer need, Sullair developed a line of proprietary compressor fluids and related products. Sullair has also utilized its rotary screw expertise to produce high efficiency two-stage and encapsulated compressors, vacuum systems, and air tools. In 1984, Sullair became a subsidiary of Sundstrand Corporation, a global manufacturer of aerospace and industrial products.


In 1999, United Technologies Corporation (UTC) acquired Sundstrand and combined it with UTC's Hamilton Standard division, forming Hamilton Sundstrand, one of the world's leading suppliers of high value-added airframe components and sub-systems for commercial aircraft. The acquisition reinforced a strategy of augmenting UTC's world class aerospace and commercial franchises and brought together three companies included Sullair, Milton Roy, and Sundyne form the Industrial Products Division of Hamilton Sundstrand.


In July of 2012, UTC aquired aerospace giant Goodrich for $16.5 billion and merged the business with Hamilton Sundstrand to form UTC Aerospace Systems. This new acquision positioned the Industrial Products companies outside of the core business. So with the need to raise cash to help pay for the new Goodrich purchase, UTC decided to sell the three Industrial companies. So in July of 2012, United Technologies reached an agreement to sell Sullair, Milton Roy, and Sundyne to private-equity firms The Carlyle Group and BC Partners.

Sullair's Complete Line of Rotary Screw Air Compression

Rotary screw air compression provides the most mechanically efficient method of air compression today, which translates to lower operating and maintenance costs. And Sullair is a major manufacturer of rotary screw air compressors designed for both portable and stationary applications, and are known throughout the world as one of todayв preeminent designers and manufacturers of the industry most reliable and robust air compressor units.

Sullair was the first to bet on the rotary screw method and introduced the technology to the market back in the mid-1960s. While early on, many were convinced that other air compression technology such as reciprocal compressors would over-time win the day, companies eventually wound up following Sullair  lead, thus showing the level of foresight that the Sullair leadership had almost 50 years ago. Todayв robust rotary screw marketplace has Sullair to thank for its steadfast commitment to the technology.

Today, Sullair has a reach around the globe, manufacturing an entire family of high quality, fully-configurable stationary air compressor systems in both 50Hz and 60Hz models, and a complete line of rugged towable portable engine-operated air compressors that can handle the most demanding jobs under the most diverse of environmental
