VMAC Hits Milestone With 40,000 Air Compressors Shipped

Nanaimo, BC - VMAC hit yet another milestone, shipping its 40,000th air compressor system. This specific air compressor system was shipped to VMAC Authorized Dealer Summit Truck Bodies in Wathena, Kansas, to be upfitted on a new truck build.

VMAC is known worldwide for designing and manufacturing compact, lightweight, and powerful rotary screw air compressors. Air compressor and multi-power systems include above-deck gas, diesel, and hydraulically driven air compressor systems, underdeck transmission-mounted PTO driven air compressor systems, and VMAC’s flagship product, UNDERHOOD™ belt driven air compressor systems for commercial trucks and vans.

“I’ve had the opportunity to travel to all the OEM’s headquarters and worked with their teams to perform initial installations of UNDERHOOD40, UNDERHOOD70 and UNDERHOOD150 air compressors,” says Kyle McWilliam, VMAC Mechanical Engineer. “It was exciting to be able to work so closely with our OEM partners and their headquarters.
