The Air Kraft Story
Air Kraft’s managing director, Craig May-Russell, got his first experience of the industry working for a small compressor company in Coventry.
Craig moved up the ranks, from sweeping up and passing tools, to servicing and sales.
After seven years, there was virtually nothing he couldn’t do.
But, despite all his skills and knowledge, he felt undervalued and underpaid — so he decided to leave and start his own business journey.
A new opportunity
Craig tried his hand at several businesses after leaving the compressor company. But, though they gave him the autonomy he craved, he never felt the same fulfilment.
He was running his own hot dog van, when he was tracked down by a man who knew him from his compressor company days. The man asked Craig if he would be interested in doing some compressor pipework installations — and Craig jumped at the chance.
Preparing for take-off
Craig enjoyed the pipework installations so much, he started to rethink his business ambitions and decided to start his own compressor company.
Like many great companies, Air Kraft was borne in a garage. One man with a van, a typewriter and a pipe threading machine, ready to make his mark.
Building the business
Craig got his first customers the old fashioned way, by knocking on doors.
As his business grew, he moved it, first from his home garage to a lock-up in Wolston, then to its current unit in 2000.
Building the business was hard work. In the first seven years of launching Air Kraft, Craig worked six and seven-day weeks with few breaks or holidays.
A family-run business
Today, Air Kraft is a family business, which Craig runs with his two sons and a staff of highly experienced technicians.
Together, they supply and install a range of Atlas Copco compressors and offer servicing and repairs for all the major brands.
