About AirPress

AirPress designed the first portable, commercial vacuum press in 1993 as a solution to the problem of how to press veneers and laminate curved panels without having to buy a large and expensive veneer press.

What was needed was an easy to use, affordable and reliable vacuum press that could be stored away when not in use. The idea quickly caught on and we became the number one supplier of vacuum pressing systems in the UK.

AirPress vacuum pressing systems have since become renowned for their quality build, efficiency and reliability and with many of our customers still running their vacuum presses bought from us in the early nineties - value for money too!

Over the years we have developed vacuum press systems for a wide range of applications: pressing the leather on to the roof liners and steering wheels of Bentley motor cars, veneering the wooden components on the Rolls Royce motor car, laminating curved door panels for Smallbone Kitchens and one of our customers even laid the deck on a 130ft, "J" Class racing yacht with our Professional Vacuum Press!.

It is always a great pleasure to see the beautiful pieces our furniture making customers produce with our vacuum press systems and we are pleased to count some of the leading names in the furniture & cabinetmaking world as our customers.
