MICHIGAN CITY, INDIANA (FEBRUARY 21, 2023) – Sullair, an industry leader in innovative compressed air solutions since 1965, has acquired compressed air distributors California Compression and CDA Systems. California Compression has served as an independent Sullair distributor since 2017 specializing in the sales and service of compressors and related equipment. CDA Systems provides compressor sales and service and preventive maintenance for compressors, air dryers, and filtration systems. The two companies are co-located in Livermore, California.

“Sullair is committed to building a customer-forward company and providing our customers with a total seamless solution to their compressed air needs,” said John Randall, Sullair President and CEO. “California Compression and CDA Systems are well known for their customer service, industry expertise and end-to-end capabilities. Adding these two companies to the Sullair owned-distribution network, allows us to better service the evolving needs of both our current and future customers in the strategic Northern and Central California regions.”

The acquisition of California Compression LLC and CDA Systems LLC, subsidiaries of Montreal-based Xebec Adsorption, Inc., is pursuant to a Sale and Investment Solicitation Process established by the Canadian court overseeing Xebec’s restructuring proceeding. California Compression, founded in 1975, and CDA Systems, founded in 2009, are co-located at 4659 Las Positas Road, Livermore, California and serve a diverse group of customers in northern and central California including Silicon Valley, in general manufacturing, wine production, mining and more.

All California Compression and CDA Systems employees will remain with their respective companies through the transition and both companies will continue to operate under their original name to help ensure uninterrupted service to customers.

“Our business was founded on putting the customer first which is one of the reasons our distributor partnership with Sullair was so successful,” said Scott Gerner, General Manager / Director of Sales at California Compression. “As we become a permanent member of the Sullair family we will have even more tools and capabilities at our fingertips to continue to provide the personalized and expert service our customers have come to expect.”
