Tuesday, August 18, 2020
If it lifts, moves or operates under hydraulic power, Air-Way Global Manufacturing is there. Although there have been changes to how we work, just like the hydraulic operations we help power every day, we haven’t missed a beat. With U.S. based manufacturing capabilities for our hydraulic fittings, Air-Way has continued to supply top Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Distribution serving the essential critical infrastructure sectors.
U.S. Based, Global Footprint
Our plants in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, and Canada have been instrumental in ensuring Air-Way customers have the hydraulic fittings they need to build equipment. We are also happy that we have been able to keep our employees working during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When the tariff concerns arose in 2018, Air-Way took the initiative to increase our domestic inventory. Our proactive approach positioned us to be able to respond quickly to customers that need hydraulic fittings and adaptors, no matter the situation. While we maintain and expand overseas manufacturing, we wanted our customers to be able to depend on our flexibility during rapid shifts in the market, or any other extenuating circumstances. Establishing operations both locally and globally enables to serve our customers best.
Shorter Lead Times
Manufacturing in North America means that we can deliver to our clients more quickly. Whether the part you need is off-the-shelf or custom made, our versatility in manufacturing gives us the ability to deliver timely solutions and inventory to customers when they need it most.
By keeping it local, we have greater control over the manufacturing process. Air-Way has a team of highly skilled experts that ensure your hydraulic fitting parts meets your specs. Additionally, keeping a closer watch on the manufacturing process presents us with more opportunities to innovate our production, design process, and customer offering. We manufacture our hydraulic adapter and fitting products with quality materials and take every single detail into account. Controlling the development first-hand enables greater quality control and helps to reduce waste and overproduction.
Air-Way’s customer service team is located in Olivet, Michigan. We are a family-owned business and believe that a customer should be able to talk to a person when they need a solution or answer. Working with Air-Way ensures easy, open communication which results in you receiving the product you need for your specific application.

Seven Key Qualities To Consider When Selecting Your SupplierJust like a chain is only as good as its weakest link, a company is only as good as its worst supplier. Suppliers play a critical role in the production process, providing the materials a company uses to produce its own products and provide services. The right supplier can help a manufacturer improve the production process, maximize capabilities, create cost efficiencies, and deliver a higher-quality product. For some organizations, their suppliers are the secret sauce to their own success.
