Setting the Bar on Quality, Internationally
Wednesday, February 1, 2017
At Air-Way Global Manufacturing, we have expanded our hydraulic solution center capabilities, locations, and distribution reach since our beginning in 1950. We don’t stay still for long, and function within a state of continuous improvement in our standards and processes at every facility, world-wide.
Global Hydraulic Fittings Supplier
Air-Way is the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of hydraulic fittings and hose assemblies for several major industry manufacturers. As the specification originator, we help set the standard for the design and production process – a position we’ve earned based on our dedication to quality manufacturing of both industry standard and customer-specific parts. Customers count on us to set the bar high, and that by maintaining an Air-Way caliber of quality, they can trust in the reputation of our hydraulic fittings, no matter where they are manufactured.
We have established a quality management system that is in conformance with the International Quality System Standard ISO 9001:2008 and began the process of achieving an ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Certification in 2016. By receiving this certification, Air-Way will become more resource-efficient, reduce waste, and establish a greater sense of trust and environmental sustainability with our customers. Both ISO certifications reflect our commitment to not only high quality manufacturing, but environmental awareness as well.
Facility Updates. Improved Quality.
We recently extended our geographic reach and overall hydraulic solutions by becoming “One Air-Way,” welcoming Hydra-Flex, Inc. into the fold and now support two international locations as well as regional facilities in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and North Carolina. Our goal is to solidify the idea that regardless of the location, as a global hydraulic fitting supplier, the Air-Way caliber of quality is consistent no matter where the operation resides.
For example, Air-Way recently updated our production and warehouse facility in Shandong, China by separating the production and machining processes from final assembly areas. This helps us ensure the assembly of quality products that meet or exceed the higher levels of cleanliness required by customers. By creating a controlled separation between these two spaces, any residual contamination or other particles created during the production process is separate from the assembly line.
As a global manufacturing leader, we sell all over the world. By setting production standards and establishing professional control over all assembly processes, we ensure that Air-Way not only meets, but exceeds expectations of our manufacturing and distribution customers worldwide.
We are taking these steps for customers, old and new, who see value in working with a process-driven international hydraulic fittings manufacturer focused on delivering higher quality parts, as efficiently as possible, and in an environmentally conscious manner.
We’ve never been one to operate under a status quo mentality, and as we continue to advance, trust that the Air-Way caliber of quality and service will continue to improve alongside our manufacturing capabilities and customer-focused service. Our aim is high – and yours should be too.
Custom Hydraulic Fittings: The Right Hydraulic Fitting for Your ApplicationA custom hydraulic fitting solution can ensure you have the right concept, design, and material for a perfect solution. Without the right hydraulic system connections, machinery will not work effectively or efficiently to provide the desired result. Sometimes, the only way to ensure a proper fit for your application is with a custom hydraulic fitting solution from Air-Way Global Manufacturing.
COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS & RESPONSE PLANThe purpose of this Plan is to communicate and outline Air-Way’s safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. This Plan will be in effect until further notice. This Plan will be guided by recommendations from the CDC, OSHA, and federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations and orders. This Plan will be available to employees on the ADP portal site, the Company website, and hard copy if requested.
Introducing 3D CAD Models Available Online by Part #We’re pleased to announce that CAD 3D component models are available on our website for thousands of our parts. These Solidworks Models are animated to show the features, properties, functionality, mechanics, size, and structure. Not only are the surface features, edges, and orientations of the stock hydraulic adapters represented, but the entire body of the fitting can be sliced for a cross-section view.
