From a staff of 15 employees and $250,000 worth of business in 1946, Southern Air has grown to employ over 750 people and has an annual business volume of approximately $100,000,000.
In 1962 we added plumbing to our service and became the only complete mechanical contractor in the Lynchburg area, our growth and success took off. In 1980, Southern Air moved to its present facilities. Then in 1983, we added electrical contracting. We now offer the owner or contractor a team to perform the three major phases of a project: plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and electrical. In 1997, Southern Air expanded it's capabilities to include a Building Automation Department (BAS), Industrial Maintenance Department, and Pipe Fabrication Shop. In 2000, our Service Department added Water Treatment to it's full line service capabilities. We have also expanded our service operations to cover the entire state of Virginia, West Virginia and parts of North Carolina, with offices in Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Harrisonburg, Newport News, Richmond, Roanoke and Winchester VA, Bluefield, Morgantown, WV and Greensboro, NC.
The engineering capabilities of our staff; the dedication of our piping, sheet metal and electrical employees, and the unmatched reputation of our Service Department have been fundamental to our success. Our whole company now enjoys this success.
