DirectAIR® system provides manufacturer with $72,171 in energy savings

A new DirectAIR® system from Air Technologies® helped a contract manufacturer increase efficiency, reliability and energy savings.

Highlands Diversified Services, Inc. — a privately held, vertically integrated contract manufacturing company specializing in metal stamping, welding, powder coat painting, assembly, warehousing and distribution — was operating three older air compressors that were no longer efficient. The manufacturer was having to pay high maintenance costs to keep up with the old air compressors.direct-air-savings

Highlands Diversified Services, Inc. reached out to the experts at Air Technologies® for a solution. After performing an extensive air audit, Air Technologies® found that the system was running extremely inefficiently. To provide the company with more efficiency and reduce the high maintenance costs, Air Technologies® recommended the DirectAIR® compressed air utility service.

DirectAIR®—a division of Air Technologies®, North America’s largest Atlas Copco distributor—is the pioneer of the fourth-utility concept and has consistently supplied high-quality compressed air to more than 100 Fortune 500 companies. Since 1995, Air Technologies® has provided DirectAIR® customers with over 6 million hours of operations without a single hour of lost production due to low pressure.

With DirectAIR®, Air Technologies® installed a complete state-of-the-art compressed air facility in its own building on the manufacturer’s site. Because DirectAIR® is a utility service, Air Technologies® owns, operates and maintains the DirectAIR® facility. The manufacturer receives a monthly bill for air and utility use and enjoys a stress-free commitment.

As a result of the DirectAIR® installation, Highlands Diversified Services, Inc., has saved over 39 percent in energy and more than $70,000 in annual energy savings. Highlands Diversified Services, Inc., now enjoys a stress-free commitment and a steady stream of high-quality compressed air, guaranteed.
