Air Pump USA, a construction and landscape industry service provider that places aggregates, sands and soil blends into hard-to-reach places, has announced the launch of its new brand, website and centralized location.

Formerly known as Air Pumped Sand & Gravel, the name change, new brand identity, and recent relocation of its headquarters from Mission Viejo to Gardena, Calif., reflects the company's desire to better serve the growing Southern California construction market and prepare for growth into other regions of the country.

Air Pump USA developed its initial sand and gravel pumping technology in 1996. The system, a truck-mounted assembly that pneumatically moves aggregates through flexible hoses upwards of 500-linear-ft. (152.4 m), is designed to save time and reduce the need for manual labor, freeing up the work force. Air Pump USA provides a safer and cost-saving alternative to conventional crane and bucket systems, power buggies or wheelbarrows, according to the manufacturer.

“We are excited to launch the new Air Pump USA brand and gain additional exposure from some of the largest and most sophisticated contracting companies who recognize the value of our service,” said Michael Nolen, the company's president. “With construction in this region booming, we are experiencing record demand for our systems in various applications, including multi-family housing, podium deck planters, annular space fills and green roofs.”

The company is currently developing its eighth generation Air Pump design, and is preparing to offer its equipment to qualified licensees throughout North America.

In 2015, Nolen and a management team acquired the company from original owner Richard Dunlop. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, Air Pump USA takes an innovative and progressive approach to improving the Air Pump technologies for safety and efficiency.
