Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems Co. consolidated its compressed air business, including Michigan City-based Sullair, into Hitachi Global Air Power.
“We are the same organization, ownership, leadership and staff, but now we have a name that more clearly demonstrates Hitachi’s breadth of compressed air solutions, product lines and innovation that both Sullair and Hitachi bring to the market,” said Yasuhiro Takeuchi, president and CEO of HIES, in a press release. “In today’s relentlessly transforming society, Hitachi Global Air Power is uniquely positioned to raise the bar on the value we deliver to customers through our comprehensive portfolio of compressed air products and solutions.”
The Sullair branding will remain on products, including Sullair, Champion and Air-One.
“Since our acquisition, Hitachi has invested more than $45 million in our company, and Hitachi has been instrumental in allowing us to expand our caliber and capabilities,” said John Randall, president and CEO of Sullair.
Sullair was founded in 1965 and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd. in 2017. Hitachi was founded in 1911.
