Compressed air is everywhere. It powers the world around us. With the power of air, the possibilities become limitless. But it’s critical for the UK’s industries that these systems keep running like clockwork. Which is why…

Direct Air are the UK’s leading supplier of air compressors. We’re a family business, we’ve been installing and servicing air compressors for over 25 years. Our biggest asset is our people. From the apprentices right up to the management, you can tell we’re all one team. We’re all working towards offering the best to our customers. When you buy from us, you’re not just getting an air compressor, you’re getting the team. Our team has decades of knowledge, and we’ve used that time to develop the best customer experience.

From the start, we take time to understand and speak with our customers and their stakeholders to establish the right solution for them. Our customers know they can count in us to supply the best air compressor for them. We stock all the different brands, so we can be impartial about which models to recommend – and we’ve got the experience to offer guidance on things they might not have thought of. Direct Air are unique in being able to offer fully bespoke designs. Almost every job begins with a site survey – we’ll always go out to a customer’s location to get to know their specific requirement. Our engineers use Building Information Modelling to create drawings in 2D and 3D design packages. We look at all the other utilities and construction elements to make sure that we’re making the best possible use of space and not creating any problems down the line.

The engineers in our installation team hold safety passports, CSCS certificates and are manufacturer trained. We use our own service engineers, instead of contractors. The team’s experienced with a wide range of materials. We pride ourselves on being flexible – whatever challenges you’re up against, we can find a solution. Direct Air offer a full range of flexible service contracts to meet your site’s compressed air requirements. We’re not a one-time sale distributor. We’re proud to have a longstanding customer base from small workshops to nationwide organisations. A number of our customers have been with us for over 25 years. Whatever level of support you need, Direct Air have a service package for you. We keep genuine spares in stock for all makes & models, to help our customers avoid any issues later on.

Even with a brand-new compressor, there are always opportunities to make energy savings and improve efficiency, which is why Direct Air offer free assessments. If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it – that why we monitor system performance over time and recommend adjustments to save energy. We also guarantee projected savings from any survey conducted, so our customers can improve their energy efficiency with confidence.

Should the worst happen, there’s no need to worry – Direct Air’s team are monitoring your air compressor 24/7. We know about the breakdown before the client does, and we can dispatch the nearest service engineer. People often tell us “you’re here before we even knew there was a problem”.

Our history

Direct Air & Pipework was established in 1993 from the complimentary skillsets of compressed air and pipework with the ambition of providing a service to Midlands engineering.

Fast forward over 25 years and while the family business has developed and grown into a leading compressed air solution provider, the founding principles upon which it was built remain the same which is why many of our first customers remain working with us. A testament to the quality of service Direct Air provide.

Our head office in Coventry is the beating heart of our business and its central location allows us to respond to customers up and down the country easily and effectively.

In 2004, we opened our doors in Cheltenham and we’ve not turned back with strong customer relationships in the southern counties.

While our roots are well and truly local to the West Midlands and Gloucestershire areas, the quality of our service has led to many projects and service contracts for clients all over the UK – and internationally.

Our team

Our biggest asset is our people; from our apprentices to our management, we are one team working towards offering the best to our customers.

Our large team of manufacture trained service engineers are based nationwide and are experienced at maintaining all makes and models of air compressor and plant equipment. We also have skilled pipefitters in our installation team, providing Direct Air with the in-house expertise for full project delivery.

In addition, we also have a dedicated service support team and projects department to offer the best customer experience.
