About Direct Air & Pipework

When Allan Dolby left his long term employer to start a new business with his father, Allan Senior, they combined their mutual skill sets of compressed air and pipework to provide a service to Midlands engineering, establishing Direct Air and Pipework in May 1993

Whilst Allan senior has now retired the company still benefits from the experience and hard work of those early days, with Direct Air still working with many of the companies that they started dealing with more than 20 years ago, testament to the quality of service Direct Air offer their customers
