Airflow Engineering (SI) Ltd, known simply as ‘Airflow’, is a Christchurch
based independent supplier of Heating, Ventilation and Air Movement
Airflow Engineering (SI) Ltd started its life as “Derek Thompson HEVAC Sales” in 1988, and grew into Airflow Engineering (SI) Ltd in 1992. 1st May 1994 Derek lost his fight to cancer, a huge blow to the family and business. Intrepidly taking over Airflow at this time Cherry (Derek's daughter) has owned, operated and established Airflow in the market place.
Airflow has always continued to expand with a wider range of product and services. 2000 saw the company adopt the brand name of ‘AIRFLO’, to highlight its move into a “one-stop” Heating and Ventilation wholesaler, and to brand a range of its own designs.
2001 Airflo invested in a flexible duct-manufacturing machine, proving to be a solid investment. 2001 again saw growth, with expansion into larger and higher profile premises in Carlyle Street, Sydenham. 2005 Airflo continued to grow with new and improved product lines, along with machinery to manufacture Airflo Grease Filters & Airflo Electric Duct Heaters. 2006 Airflo were appointed as South Island stockists for the FläktWoods air movement range. 2007 Airflo was appointed SI distributor for Aircon Flange and Duct Accessories. 2009 we started working with and promoting Xpelair, Alsynite & Ampleair products, again products where brand name speaks for itself. 2010 started with a team visit to ‘ARBS’ Heating & Ventilation trade show in Australia, meeting new suppliers, we introduced the Systemair Fans and CFM Kitchen Exhaust Fans to our range. 2011 - A New Year saw a launch of a revamped catalogue but when February 22 2011, changed the lives of Cantabrians with a 6.3 earthquake, our premises were seriously damaged by the quake, thus requiring us to relocate. This relocation of our premises marked the end of an era for Airflo which has spent over 10 years in Carlyle Street, but the beginning of a new era in new premises in Wairakei Road. Looking forward to putting a couple of very hard years behind us we look to 2013 as exciting new year, we launch our new web site, and very much look forward to being involved in the rebuild of Christchurch.
