About VMAC

The Leader InCompressed Air Innovation®

VMAC designs and manufactures the most innovative mobile air compressors and multi-power systems available.

We do this with hard-working, dedicated people who devote their working lives to improving the mobile air industry. VMAC coworkers put their skills to the test every day, constantly pushing boundaries in the pursuit of excellence.

We build every VMAC system in-house with the promise that it will work as hard as you do, and we back this promise with our VMAC Lifetime Warranty (Limited).


VMAC is one of the only authentic air compressor manufacturers in North America. We design, engineer, and manufacture our air compressors and multi-power systems in-house, at our 44,000 ft² headquarters in British Columbia, Canada.

We craft our own rotors and parts using an in-house foundry, CNC machines, and other specialized equipment. Investing in our own machines and parts creation allows us to refine our products at will while maintaining the utmost quality.
