DirectAIR® system provides manufacturer with $72,171 in 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.
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.
