Hokuetsu Industries Co., Ltd. Japan was founded in 1938 in Japan. Over the years it has developed the AIRMAN brand to become an industry leader in Portable Air compressors in Japan and many parts of the world. In the 21st century, as world trade and investments between countries and regions grow at a much more rapid pace than previously, it is inevitable that the Hokuetsu Industries has had to adopt a new strategy to globalize its business.

Airman Asia Sdn Bhd (AMA) formed in September 2013, is a 100% overseas subsidiary company of Hokuetsu Industries Co., Ltd. Japan which manufactures and sells the AIRMAN brand of Screw Air Compressors, Engine Power Generators, Mini Excavators, and Mobile Table Lifter Work Platforms. Both AIRMAN brands of Air Compressors and AIRMAN Power Generators have been sold and marketed by AIRMAN’s Distributors in Malaysia and neighboring countries for almost 30 years. Throughout the years AIRMAN’s products have achieved a reputation for its high quality, reliability, and reasonable cost allowing the brand to achieve good market share.


As the ASEAN region continues to grow economically, the demand for air compressors, power generators, and other infrastructure and construction equipment continues to grow. At the same time more and more products from competing brands will also try to increase their market share and new entrants will try to gain a foothold in this region. As a result, the ASEAN market, which has a population greater than 0.5 billion people, has been identified as one of the potential growth markets for AIRMAN and at the same time a market with increasing competition.


" AMA’s mission is to build and grow the AIRMAN brand’s market reputation as one of the dominant players in the field of air compressors and portable power generators in ASEAN and Asia Pacific regions. Within the next 3-5 years, AMA intends to grow our annual sales revenue to exceed USD50 million. Our goal is to grow AMA into one of the key overseas Regional center for Hokuetsu Industries Co., Ltd.’s Global Business plan. "
