Comairco Equipment: 50 years of success and innovation

By Comairco Equipment   


The company Comairco Equipment is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Since the beginning, they have capitalized on all the opportunities that changes in the industry have presented to evolve, diversify and to remain a viable and innovative partner for its customers.

Since 1972, Comairco has been the leader in the field of compressed air. During these 50 years, Comairco has always been an important player in the sale of new and used equipment, rentals and service. Comairco’s value package has greatly diversified and now offers a wide range of specialized services, such as management of complex projects, construction of custom units, in-depth analysis of compressed air networks and support applications for energy subsidies. Today, thousands of companies in the food, mining and manufacturing sectors have benefited from Comairco’s expertise.

Comairco has adapted over the decades, focusing on innovative products that offer added value for our industrial and institutional customers. For example, in the 2000s, Comairco introduced an exterior cabinet for air compressors. This product, entirely designed and manufactured in North America, makes it possible to install electric compressors outside, in a weatherproof compartment. This unique solution offers significant interior space savings for several customers.

To support its growth over the past 50 years, the family business has distinguished itself through numerous acquisitions as for to maintaining a leading position in the current market. During these acquisitions, Comairco ensured that each of the branches offered unparalleled local service while maintaining that personal touch that only a family-owned company can offer. Another strength of the organization: the training of employees, specifically technicians, which has always been a priority for Comairco in order to stand out and offer the best after-sale experience in the industry.


“In business partnership for more than 50 years with our manufacturer Sullair, we have continued over the years a progressive expansion in Canada and the United States. Our expertise, reinforced by our acquisitions, as well as our increased geographical presence allows us to sustain our market shares in all sectors of activity. Comairco’s commitment, the quality of service and the wide range of products have led us to the success we are currently enjoying,” says Eddy Nadeau, President of Comairco, United States division.

To highlight the event and thank its employees and customers, various celebrations will take place in Comairco branches during 2022. These events will then be shared with the general public on the company’s social networks. Follow us to discover these privileged moments!
