Compressed Air Equipment Documentary

“The compressed air industry is an industry that people don’t ever consider and don’t ever think about.  Everything around us comes from the use of an air compressor in a manufacturing facility!”   -Adam Pettit-

About Us

After four decades, Compressed Air Equipment has grown to be a leader in the service and sale of industrial air compressor equipment in the tri-state area. Founded in 1972, Compressed Air Equipment Company opened its shop doors located in downtown Mantua, NJ. In the beginning the company consisted of one service truck and three employees, offering field trouble shooting of industrial air compressors. Being a service oriented company and responding to the needs of a growing customer base, Compressed Air Equipment soon added product lines and additional services.

By the late 1980s, C.A.E. had evolved into one of the industries most relied upon air compressor service companies in the tri-state area.
Now four decades later Compressed Air Equipment services over one thousand industrial businesses throughout NJ, PA, DE and MD, with a fleet of more than 6 service vehicles.  Compressed air needs have changed drastically through the years and air compressors have improved dramatically, but our philosophy has always remained the same, “When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality.”

Today, our primary business continues to focus on the sale and service of industrial air compressors, air dryers, and air treatment equipment.
