Completed Projects Since 1948

We do the hard work for you!

Since 1948, we’ve been helping manufacturers across all industries reach new levels of production efficiencies with their compressed air systems and paint finishing & fluid handling equipment. This is accomplished by utilizing our own 3E initiative: Energy, Environment, & Ergonomics. We use this tool to refine the effectiveness of a plant’s process while reducing their footprint, increasing equipment reliability, reducing energy costs, and to help maintain worker safety.

How it Works

  • 1 We know you face a host of challenges every day; from production line issues, fluctuating maintenance costs, to employee safety and environmental regulations.  At C.H. Reed, our core competencies focus on you.
  • 2 Once you’ve identified a compressed air, paint finishing, or fluid handling need in your facility, the next step is to simply contact C.H. Reed to discuss your current goals and objectives.
  • 3 From there, we work with you to thoroughly understand your business, provide industry insight, and tailor impactful solutions for your strategic needs.
