Pulford Air & Gas has been serving the Australian industrial market since 1925, when Frank Pulford produced Model 10, the first Australian designed air compressor. Since that time, Pulford has grown to become a leading compressed air and gas generation systems supplier, recognised for delivering reliable, efficient and quality products and services.
In 2018 Pulford was acquired by ELGi Equipments Limited, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, committed for over 62 years to delivering world-class sustainable compressed air solutions. This substantially increased Pulford’s product portfolio, as well as its ability to offer customisable solutions.
With Pulford’s diverse knowledge and experience in the industry coupled with its high standards of materials and workmanship, the company has developed an industry-leading suite of products and services focused on driving down the total cost of compressed air and gas production, improving the overall efficiency of system operation, and delivering the highest quality reliable compressed air and gas supply and support available on the market today.
Pulford continues to evolve as a flexible dynamic organisation, continually gearing all areas of the business to meet demand, while continuing the supply of quality, cost effective compressed air and nitrogen systems to Australian industry.
