Colorado Companies to Watch spotlight: Air comm Corp.


Air Comm Corp.


Snapshot: Air Comm engineers, designs and manufactures heating and air conditioning systems and components for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.

Leadership: Keith Steiner became CEO
in 2010.

Work force: The Boulder-based company had 79 full-time-equivalent workers in 2011 and expects to reach 87 this year.

Pivotal moment:  Air Comm developed a lightweight, high-performance cabin heater for the Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. This system has been extensively used for combat and medevac operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Subsequent achievement of AS-9100 certification has facilitated the company’s selection as an OEM supplier for major airplane and helicopter manufacturers, and the U.S. Army.

Technological edge: Air Comm’s Torq-Lok air conditioner fitting and mini-ejector heater technology has differentiated the company from its competition.

Company culture: Norm Steiner, executive vice president of engineering, started Air Comm in the basement of his home in 1987. He and his son, Keith, try to treat employees like an extended family. Charitable activities include the Crayons-to-Calculators school supply campaign, the United Way, the American Red Cross, Blue Sky Bridge, and numerous local youth sports team sponsorships.
