Air Power Enters with a New Corporate Brand

Industry-leading manufacturing supporter rebrands itself with a new website, logo, corporate video and it’s most defining element, the corporate tagline

An established, well-recognized, industry-leading brand, Air Power has created a place for itself as the manufacturing community’s provider of choice. And while the achievements and capabilities of Air Power have carried the company through the last 50 years, its success has never come from remaining idle. Air Power enters 2019 with a new corporate brand that more accurately reflects what the company offers and the value it provides to the market.

With an updated website, logo and corporate message, Air Power’s rebrand provides clarity to its mission as an organization and its commitment to the manufacturing community. The rebrand includes bolder colors, user-friendly and interactive website navigation, a more refined company message, a brand anthem video and Air Power’s most defining element, the new tagline: Assemble. Move. Coat.

The  “Assemble. Move. Coat.” tagline exemplifies the core of the company. For manufacturing organizations that assemble, move or coat product at any point in the production process, Air Power is the partner to turn to.

The brand anthem video offers an audible and visual representation of the values that define Air Power. By showcasing the core of Air Power’s culture, it’s employees, the brand anthem video sets the expectations for what customers and prospects can trust Air Power to deliver on.

“Air Power has been the industry-leading partner for the manufacturing community for 50 years. We’ve been the brand organizations turn to for quality products and highly-engineered, innovative solutions that effectively assemble, move and coat the products that shape our world,” said Dan Senff, President of Air Power. “Our rebranding efforts go far beyond a marketing exercise. These changes were intentional, allowing us to more effectively tell the story of our brand and what we bring to the table for customers, prospects and the industry at large.”

2019 Annual Sales Meeting: “No Fear, No Limits, No Excuses”

Sales Meeting Welcome Reception

This past week, January 30th through February 1st, 2019, Air Power held its Annual Sales Meeting themed “No Fear, No Limits, No Excuses” to celebrate the accomplishments achieved in 2018 while promoting organizational goals moving forward in 2019.

Welcome Reception

We arrived on Wednesday at the beautiful Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, South Carolina. Although colder than anticipated, we quickly warmed as Sames Kremlin hosted a Happy Hour for our team at Billy G’s Smokehouse. Our welcome reception began as Dan Senff, President of Air Power, took the stage.  Dan energized the sales team, supporting team members, and accompanying spouses  as he introduced this year’s theme;  No Fear, No Limits, No Excuses!

Vendor Day Event

Henry Ford once stated “Coming together is a beginning.  Keeping together is progress.  Working together is success” and Thursday was a success. A highlight of the Air Power Sales meeting was our Vendor Fair.  36 of Air Power’s most valued vendor partners gathered for this exclusive event.  Air Power strategically aligned its brand message in 2018 to promote manufacturing solutions within customers who assemble, move, and coat the product of today’s world.

Vendor Day Jan. 2019 Charleston, SC

This vendor fair was an opportunity for Air Power to further align with its vendor partners, sales staff, and supporting members to elaborate on this message.  This gave our valued vendor partners one-on-one time with each and every Account Manager and Supporting Sales Staff member within our organization. Our team members spent time with each vendor partner to strategically plan and learn of new technologies to promote in 2019.

Air Power would like to thank all of our vendor partners that participated in this event.  A huge shout out to our Tier 1 Sponsors and their commitment to Air Power: Graco, Ingersoll Rand, Carlisle, ARO, Levitate, Henkel Loctite, and Heraeus. “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself”; Henry Ford knew this to be true as does Air Power with its trusted and valued vendor partners.

Get More Paint on Product with Electrostatic Spray Guns


Instead of using a spray booth to paint their products, they use exhaust plenum. Most colors used are enamel solvent based and the products painted are made up of 50% expanded steel, which is difficult to coat and very time consuming. The HVLP non electrostatic spray gun they were using produced a large amount of overspray.


Air Power Solution

Air Power Inc. introduced the Ransburg RansFlex 45kV, an electrostatic spray gun with much less overspray. The 45kV is better on expanded metal and less faraday cage resistance.
