VMAC is the leader in compressed air innovation®, designing and manufacturing 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 own tools, equipment and 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.
VMAC is one of the only true air compressor manufacturers in North America. We design, engineer and manufacture our air compressors and multi-power systems in-house, at our 40,000 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 parts and products at will while maintaining utmost quality.
Our individual components are then assembled on-site into VMAC air compressor and multipower systems. Every complete unit is tested, then packaged up and shipped out.

What Is LEAN at VMAC?
LEAN Enterprise goes by many names, including LEAN Manufacturing, LEAN Production, and Six Sigma, but at VMAC it’s simply referred to as LEAN.
LEAN is best described as the ongoing pursuit of removing waste from an organization’s manufacturing process. Driven by the goal of customer satisfaction, VMAC is constantly striving to produce a product of the highest quality, at the lowest cost, and with the shortest delivery time. Simply put, LEAN drives VMAC to maximize value while minimizing waste. This benefits the VMAC organization, but also passes value on to our customers in the way of quality, reliability, durability, ease of use, service level, and more.
VMAC’s LEAN journey is constantly evolving, as improvements can always be made.
