More about Cambridge Air Solutions

We firmly believe in the sharing of information. Sharing both the fundamentals of our lean culture and our warehousing and industrial HVAC technology is one of the cornerstones in pursuing our mission to “Enrich the quality of every life we touch.” And, we take that very seriously. The products we make and the services we provide manufacturing and warehousing leaders are all about helping you enrich the lives of your people working inside industrial facilities.

Leaders who engage Cambridge are interested in creating a healthy work environment for their hard-working people. We know that leaders like you face challenging decisions every day. Understanding the risk of investing or the risk of not investing in people, facilities or capital equipment may be the difference in winning or losing in your business. As a manufacturer of semi-custom HVAC equipment, we understand this risk because we face the very same challenge. 

Our goal is to have each Cambridge visitor walk away with more knowledge than they had before. Knowledge that will help them enrich their life and inspire them to move forward on their own path of personal enrichment.
