17 May Airia Compressed Air Solutions is expanding its business.
Airia Compressed Air Solutions have purchased the industrial unit they have leased since the firm was established by Paul Brewer & Andrew Drummond in 2009.
The Romsey based business, which has become one of the South’s leading Compressed Air Solutions providers, now plan to develop the premises, creating a new office layout, modernising the existing workshop and expanding their own trade counter all of which they hope will lead to at least two new jobs.
Company Director Paul Brewer said: “Securing the premises has been a long-cherished ambition for the business. The fact that we can finally claim ownership after only our 6th year of trading makes the purchase ever more satisfying and significant. The purchase of our modern purpose built building comes at a time of continuing growth for Airia as a whole. Complete acquisition of the premises ensures we have ample space for forthcoming expansion plans and security of a long-term future.”
“Our initial lease of the premises from our commencement of trading back in 2009 was a key part of our strategic plan to operate efficiently, and provide a productive working environment for our staff. Owning the building secures the future of the company and the jobs of our valued employees. It also gives us the scope to grow the business and expand in ways that were unachievable in the past.”
“This is a very exciting time for the company. Airia enjoys a thriving reputation in the Compressed Air sector, particularly among the automotive and industrial manufacturing industries. This timely acquisition will ensure that the company continues to be a leader in its field, and keeps ahead of the competition in terms of quality of service provided & the competitive pricing of it’s products”
The expansion has come thanks to a loan from NatWest. Relationship manager Mark Downer said: “NatWest has a strong relationship with Airia Compressed Air Solutions, having worked with the business since its beginnings in 2009. We are pleased to offer it the support necessary to achieve this milestone and help safeguard its future.”
Airia currently employ 10 people and provide new & used Air Compressors, pipework installation, as well as equipment servicing & spare parts supply.
