I am sitting here writing this blog looking at a 1000 piece puzzle that was recently finished by 3 family members. It is a picture of over one hundred old and new gum wrappers from the early 40’s to today. Being one of the older baby boomers in the group I do recognize some of the names like Beemans, Dentyne, Old Black Joe and PAL Bubble Gum.

Nostalgia is a funny thing. We look at something from the past ( and it can be the recent past) and it brings back a flood of memories. And, we often remember those times as  being less complicated and more fun than the present. The truth is we tend to remember the good things and not the more difficult times.

The beginning of Pure Air Systems was filled with many unknowns and lots of challenges. Bringing a new product and  relatively unknown technology to the market was very difficult in 1985 as there were few marketing avenues available then unlike today with social media and the internet.  Face-to-face marketing and meetings with potential end users, HVAC contractors and HVAC distribution companies was the norm and the trials of  getting something fabricated and then getting all the correct component parts in on time to actually complete the product and ship it on time was a nightmare.

Today, with PAS celebrating its 31st Birthday, its is hard to remember those  good old  days of business start-up. It is more important to know where we are going than where we have been. Like the old gum wrappers on the puzzle picture, it is nice to remember the good times.
