As we ring in 2020 and the next decade, Air Techniques debuts a new source of content, The Crown, its new dental blog. Promising to provide a fresh take on industry trends, news, technology, and product tips, The Crown will serve as a vital source for your dental news fix.
Established in 1962 by founders Louis E. Brooks, Jack Alpert, and George Kauer, this year marks Air Techniques’ 58th anniversary of providing dental professionals with compelling and reliable products.
The year 1962 was memorable and included events such as John Glenn becoming the first American to orbit the Earth, President Kennedy’s “Consumer Bill of Rights” speech, and Spiderman’s first appearance in a comic.
During 1962 the average cost for gas was 28 cents a gallon, while the average yearly income was $5,556. Times have changed since 1962; however, Air Techniques’ commitment set by our founders remains intact.
Nearly six decades later, Air Techniques provides digital and utility systems and merchandise solutions all across the United States, Canada, South America, Middle East, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, China, and Asia. Air Techniques’ Global Headquarters is located in Melville, New York. Our facility is an impressive 200,000 square feet and home to our manufacturing plant, in which we maintain our ISO 13485:2016 MDSAP registration certification. Key departments that are also based out of our Global Headquarters include engineering, customer care, marketing, research and development, and various other essential departments.
In the mid-1970’s Air Techniques became a part of the Dürr Dental Group, which was founded in 1941 by brothers Karl and Wilhelm Dürr from Gechingen, a town in Germany’s Black Forest. The Dürr Dental Group currently has around 1,100 employees throughout the world in 36 countries. They are headquartered in Bietigheim-Bissingen, where about 400 employees are engaged in production, research, and development as well as sales and marketing.
The Crown, in addition to Air Techniques’ existing social media channels, will provide an additional media source to communicate and deliver original content. Initiatives that will be published on The Crown are intended to be informative and help you further your practice while providing content that you can share with team members, colleagues, and your patients.
