With personalized service and an extensive portfolio, we power what’s possible. We never stand still.
Understanding our customers means discovering their expectations, and working together to develop continuous improvements. We don’t assume we’ve seen a problem before, or can solve it with a method used in the past. Instead, we consider each conversation an opportunity to learn, engage, and work with our partners to develop unique solutions.
Our satisfied customers tell us we are innovators in our industry, but know it takes a team to define and develop what’s next. Together with our customers and suppliers, we have an opportunity to create lasting improvements that make businesses more profitable, efficient, and productive.
Whether it’s our customer, our suppliers, our community, or our associates, we start by serving others. We’re in the business of helping people, and know the mark of a truly successful relationship is one that supports – and enhances – all parties. We believe in planning for today’s wants and tomorrow’s needs, while always leaving the bottle full for others.
In 1968, Jim and Mary Conrad opened Penn-Air Company in a rented garage with only three product lines. In less than five years, the company outgrew both its space and name. The Conrads moved the new Penn-Air & Hydraulics Corp. to a former fire station in downtown York, giving them the opportunity to grow their product lines and their workforce.
Fueled by strong relationships with suppliers, Jim expanded operations into Maryland with Pneu-Force in 1988. It wasn’t long before both companies needed more space. In 1996, he combined operations into a 24,000 square foot headquarters on York’s Industrial Highway. The acquisition of Konstance Pneumatics followed, driving Penn-Air’s growth throughout the entire Mid-Atlantic Region.
Community is a pillar of our company’s architecture, and for that reason, we never take more than we give. Since the very beginning, we have created opportunities for others. That commitment extends beyond our doors and into our communities. The organizations we support make outstanding contributions to our industry, employees, customers and region, and we’re proud to be a part of their success.
Over the years, PennAir has supported hundreds of organizations by donating our time, talents and resources.
