AAF – the company: AAF was founded in 1921 in Louisville, Kentucky; and since that time has been providing solutions to improve the quality of air for people, products, processes and equipment. AAF adopted the slogan, Better Air Is Our Business® to simply state the company’s purpose. The scope of applications is unlimited and ranges from HEPA filtration for electronics and pharmaceutical manufacturing, to preventing the spread of infection in hospitals, to protecting heating and cooling coils in HVAC systems. AAF is one of the world's largest manufacturers of air filtration products and systems and is now further strengthened by being a member of the multinational Hong Leong Group. AAF's main operation centres are in Asia, Europe and the USA. Vilair-AAF is the exclusive Australian AAF distributor and maintains significant stocks of all common filters and filter media.
