History of Air Mach Inc.

This business was started in 1933 by a man named Karl Johnston. The business originally began as an automotive shop named "Automotive Service Company." During the 1940's, a line of air compressors manufactured by Quincy Compressor Company was added to the company’s product line. In the mid 1970's Mr. Johnston purchased a building at 1313 Walnut St. in downtown Des Moines, next to his primary location of 1303 Walnut St. Mr. Johnston then divided his business into two separate entities. The automotive machine shop remained at the primary location of 1303 Walnut St. and kept the name "Automotive Service Company." The new company was named "Air Compressor & Machine Company of Iowa," in short "Air Mach," occupied the new location at 1313 Walnut St. On October 1, 1980, Air Mach was sold to Marty Brooker. Then on September 1, 1985, Air Mach moved to a new facility at 2345 Delaware Ave. During the year of 1987, Air Mach was incorporated and changed its name to Air Mach Inc. Later that year, Sullair air compressors was added to Air Mach's product line. Marty Brooker retired in 2018 and the business was purchased by Ryan and Angie Brooker. Today, Air Mach is still located at 2345 Delaware Ave. in Des Moines and is still owned by Ryan and Angie Brooker.
