Welcome to the AIRD Web site
The Association of Ingersoll-Rand Distributors
(AIRD) was organized in 1970 to serve as a central resource for
distributors of Ingersoll-Rand compressed air system equipment.
AIRD is chartered to promote improved business conditions
affecting distributors of air compressors, further a better
understanding between distributors and equipment suppliers,
research ways to lower costs of distributing air
compressors, collect and disseminate statistical information,
and conduct other activities deemed beneficial to member companies.

distributors that have a total personnel roster of nearly 1,700
employees. On average, employees have more than 10 years experience
in the compressed air industry, most service technicians hold multiple
IR factory certifications and member distributors typically have
in excess of 10 trucks on the road to serve customer needs.
AIRD member companies are
spread throughout the United States and Canada. They communicate
at regular regional and national meetings, as well as periodic special
meetings to promote the successful integration of Ingersoll-Rand
compressed air system products and services in the marketplace.
Any individual, corporation,
partnership or other entity that distributes air compressors and
