In today’s global, fast-paced, ever changing business world, companies that last longer than 10 years is unusual. Typically newly formed successful companies are either acquired shortly after they become public or they merge with some similar technology firm to expand their customer base quickly.
Pure Air Systems began its journey in 1985 with one HEPA filtration system that was large and difficult to use or install. HEPA systems were just beginning to be accepted in the residential and commercial markets and the cost of making the systems was steep due to the fact that the housings had to be all metal and the HEPA filters, motors and fans were all commercial grade components that required large quantity purchases to obtain any type of cost reduction. Even at that, the first unit, Model 600H cost over $600.00 in components and another $50.00 in assembly time.
Marketing the systems was somewhat difficult in that the use of computers to promote products was somewhat limited so mail and direct marketing in the form of door-to-door selling was incorporated. It wasn’t until a year later that Pure Air Systems set up it’s first and only URL. www.pureairsystems.com . The ability to use the internet to promote the systems allowed for quick introduction of a unique and highly sought after HEPA air filtration system.
By 1992 PAS had set up a series of distributors and added two more systems to its portfolio and began to outsource its production and assembly to a company in northern Indiana. By 1995 PAS had enough business to start looking for a place of its own to produce the systems and have enough space to store all the replacement filters necessary to feed the hundreds of units now in place across the U.S. In 1998 PAS broke ground on a new 9,000 sq.ft. building. In 1999 the move into the new building allowed for more R&D which produced 4 more HEPA unit designs along with a brand new HEPA portable that was one of the best on the market.
By 2001 PAS was selling seven different models of its fan powered, HEPA based, ECM motor driven air filtration systems. The use of the new GE ECM motors allowed for use with 120/240 50/60Hz power. Thus allowing for the use in overseas markets which expanded the companies footprint out the U.S. for the first time.
Today, Pure Air Systems is one of only three companies in the world that make this high performance, commercial grade HEPA air filtration system. The units now range in volume from 50 CFM to 2000 CFM and use programable ECM motors with high end digital controllers.
