“At Waterbom Bali I braved an extreme ride called Climax. We’re talking a trap door and 2.5G’s of force – it’s terrifying and you get dumped out in front of everyone! It’s not dignified.

As I was shot out I heard everyone laughing at me and my husband had to explain why…the friction had made a whole in the back of my bikini! Talk about embarrassing.”

Algar Air Sales Team

Algar Air had an unconventional beginning. Husband and wife Geoffrey and Patricia Algar both worked as part of a compressed air business, Geoffrey as a sub-contracting engineer and Patricia in accounts. But when Patricia broke her arm and was unable to work for a time, she had to leave the business. Geoffrey decided to create a new opportunity for both of them.

They launched their own compressed air business, with Geoffrey as chief engineer and Patricia looking after the admin. That was 1984.

Today, Algar Air is still a family owned and run business, with brother and sister Simone and Stephen continuing the traditions and values established by their parents.

The business has grown and moved premises occasionally to keep up with expanding demand and staffing levels, but everything that brought Algar Air this far is still at the core of the company: the pride in our work and in the relationships we build with our customers.

Our commitment to the skills of our people and the standards of our work. The flexibility of being able to look after your compressed air system and every other part of your manufacturing/servicing set-up. And the same level of commitment to every client, big or small.

We still love receiving the thanks of a grateful business owner we’ve just helped get back up and running.

We’re still based in Sheffield, although our teams work across the UK. And we’re still working hard, every day, to provide safe, efficient and well-designed compressed air.

We’d love to help you.
