Master Pneumatic Inc. originated in 1950 as a regional supplier of the Detroit automotive industry. Since then, "M/P" has become a world wide manufacturing and service organization, initially to serve the requirements of the multi-national automotive companies and later to introduce "M/P" products to other markets.
In 1960 M/P began to establish overseas distribution to sell, supply and service products that were being purchased by the overseas automotive market, primarily because of Detroit automotive specifications calling for Master Pneumatic equipment. The sixties also saw the introduction of our Serv-Oil products, a line of totally new and unique injection lubricators.
In the 1970’s we introduced two new and smaller FRL product lines for applications other than automotive, coalescing oil-removing filters in all sizes, and the expansion of our standard full size Vanguard series of FRL’s.
Increasing sales resulted in additions to our plant twice during the 1980’s, adding 30,000 feet to our original 19,000 feet, providing increased manufacturing capacity. Master Pneumatic also acquired a plastic molding company to produce any plastic parts used in our products.
1990 saw us concentrate on solving specific customer problems with custom designed products. Quick response, technical and manufacturing capabilities and product flexibility has resulted in the development of over 700 custom products to meet the specific requirements of our customers.
The acquisition of Filenco desiccant dryers in 2000, a complimentary product to our line, continues our expansion. Since 2000 Master Pneumatic has continued to expand it's customer base in the Construction, Food, Beverage and Medical markets.
In 2005 Master Pneumatic brought it's cleanroom on line. This supported the continued growth in Medical, Food and Beverage industries in addition to tighter controls on cleanliness specifictions of other customer/industries.
In 2008 Master Pneumatic began producing it's own zinc die castings for use in its intermediate and full sized fitler, regulators and lubricator product lines. The addition of this capability enabled Master Pneumatic to significantly reduce leadtimes and increase customer satisfaction.
