25th Anniversary: Our StoryMember News
From 3 employees to 3 generations, the family business of Direct Air & Pipework has grown into a leading supplier of compressed air solutions over the last 25 years.
As were celebrating our 25th anniversary, we wanted to share our story and show how far weve come, how much weve grown and how weve got so much more to give!
In April 1993, Allan Dolby made the decision to leave his long-term employer to start a new business with Allan Senior, to provide a service to Midlands engineering by combining their mutual skillsets of compressed air and pipework
Direct Air provides a complete system solution that includes the design, supply, installation and servicing for companies of all sizes throughout the UK.
The company is truly a family affair with 3 generations now having worked in the company across various departments. Although the company acts as an extended family with many long serving members of staff, such as Service Manager, Will Farrell, who has been with the company since day one.
Starting out from humble beginnings based in Allan Seniors garage and without even a service engineer, the company moved to its first official premise within the first 12 months of operations.
As the company grew, Direct Air purchased a premise in Coventry in 1996 with more room for the increasing service support team and fleet vehicles.
