ABAC a company history

ABAC Aria Compressa can claim to have shaped the history of the Italian and indeed the International compressed air industry.

The company was founded in 1980 by Antonio Balma who with over 60 years experience in the industry was regarded by many as the "Father of compressed air" - ABAC has grown into the strong and dynamic company of today that now heads the multi-national ABAC Group of companies.

A tradition reaching back 60 years and by two generations with 1,400 employees, customers in 123 countries in five continents, 8 production plants world-wide with an annual turnover of 300 million euros. These are the facts and figures of the ABAC multi-national group, a historical name in the production of compressed air equipment which has always offered practical, efficient solutions to its customers' needs.
