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 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.
