About Sullair

We build the machines that power industry. We are Hitachi Global Air Power, a leading global industrial compressed air manufacturer. Headquartered in Michigan City, Indiana, our compressed air solutions power manufacturing operations all around the globe; from food and beverage, to pharmaceuticals and computer chips. Our portable compressors provide the air power to build roads and bridges, lay pipelines and aid in oil and gas mining and production.

As part of Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems Co., Ltd., Hitachi Global Air Power operates ISO 9001 certified factories in Michigan City, Indiana and Suzhou, China, and sales offices strategically located in Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia, and South and Latin America. Through brands Hitachi, Sullair, and Champion (Australia), our machines have provided legendary reliability, durability, and performance for more than 57 years.

Our global network of engineering and quality experts are building next generation, highly efficient and environment-forward compressed air solutions in direct response to customer need.

Sullair was founded in Michigan City, Indiana, in 1965 and has since expanded with a broad international network to serve customers in every corner of the globe. Sullair has offices in Michigan City, Chicago and facilities in the United States, China and India – all ISO 9001 certified to assure the highest quality standards in manufacturing.

For more than 50 years, Sullair has been on the leading edge of compressed air solutions. We were one of the first to execute rotary screw technology in our air compressors. We made history by teaming up with Dow Chemical to produce one of the industry’s longest-lasting compressor fluids. Our machines are famous all over the world for their legendary durability. As the industry moves forward, Sullair will always be at the forefront with quality people, innovative solutions, and air compressors that are built to last. We have centered our operations around three key pillars: innovation, durability and people.

INNOVATION - Sullair has a long history of breakthrough solutions, from cutting-edge rotary screw technology in our air compressors to premium lubricants, including the 10,000-hour Sullube®. We continuously explore new ideas and technologies to find better, more energy-efficient compressed air solutions. Our customers recognize this innovative history and look for more to come.

DURABILITY - Our customers describe Sullair air compressors as bulletproof – and the proof can be viewed on roadsides. Do you ever see well-used Sullair compressors on construction sites? That’s because they are still running! We have profiled a number of our customers, including a factory owner in Rockford, Illinois, who has used the same Sullair compressor since 1979, and we know there are others out there operating even older units.

PEOPLE - At the end of the day, the people are what tie all of this together. We are proud to say that Sullair employees, our experienced distributors and our loyal customers are Always There.
