This year, Air-Way Global Manufacturing is celebrating its 70th year of operations. The family-owned company, started in an old airplane hangar in Romeo, Mich., has since become the largest independent hydraulic fitting manufacturer in the United States.
Since its start in 1950, Air-Way Global has thrived amongst its competitors, serving numerous industries and hundreds of clients. Air-Way has found success through a unique approach that allows the organization to stay dedicated to tradition and family values, all while operating on a global scale. Founded by the Hamm and Jacob families, the second, third and fourth generations are still a part of the company’s leadership today. The family-owned business serves customers ranging from John Deere and Caterpillar to NASA.
As a company that began through the efforts of two families working together, Air-Way saw major success last year, even amidst the global pandemic.
“We had already transitioned our key people’s abilities to successfully work from home which made the unplanned requirement to do so achievable,” said Air-Way President Brian Jones.
