– On Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Sullair Asia
August 21st is a pleasant day. Over 200 representatives of dealers and suppliers and esteemed guests in the industry have gathered in Shenzhen for the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Sullair Asia themed “Breaking away from the cocoon and turning into a butterfly”, greeting the 20th birthday of Sullair Asia.
Shenzhen Sullair Asia Industrial Co., Ltd. was incorporated in 1994 as the Asian headquarters of Sullair Corp. In the early days, the company had plants of 8,000 square meters and expansion potential of double capacity in Shekou of Shenzhen and product range covered stationary screw air compressors, portable screw air compressors, screw vacuum pump, air dryer, precision filter and vacuum pump etc.
In 1999, the company joined United Technologies Corporation and Sullair thereby became a member of the United Technologies Corporation, a world Top 500 company. In 2002, Sullair successfully acquired the famous Australian air compressor design and manufacturing plant, Champion Compressors Pty Ltd.
On July 5, 2004, Sullair and IHI Corporation of Japan jointly incorporated the IHI-Sullair Compression Technology (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. with joint venture plant in the Singapore Industrial Park in Suzhou, for assembly and manufacturing of IHI-Sullair centrifugal air compressors. After three years, Suzhou Sullair Air Equipment Co., Ltd. was incorporated.
In 2012, Sullair Asia greeted its new opportunities and challenges. The company was successfully acquired by the famous financial group, BC Partner and Carlyle Group and became an enterprise under Accudyne with the largest business in Asia. With great support of resources and policies of the new shareholders, Sullair Asia achieved groundbreaking results in new product development and sales channels. Meanwhile, in the global strategy of Accudyne Industrial Group, Sullair Asia will become a research, development and production center of Sullair. The VOC project in Australia and Shoptek project in the U.S. this year, as well as the plant under planning and preparations in Southeast Asia will further enhance the international competitiveness of Sullair Asia.
The twenty years of development of Sullair Asia is just like the growing process of a butterfly; through the painful growth from egg, larva and pupa, finally it is now breaking away from the cocoon and turning into a butterfly of all the glamour and beauty.
Twenty years in history may seem just an instance. But the past twenty years have been years of endeavors, diligence, exploration and innovations of the Sullair people. Today we are at the starting point of the next twenty years and we have all the reasons to believe that with the leadership of Accudyne Industries, we will continue our efforts and seek for excellence. Future of Sullair Asia will be brighter and will be a greater success!
