Air Craftsmen, Inc. was started by Ken Hodges in July of 1981 after working for several prominent filter and duct providers for more than twenty years. He decided to start Air Craftsmen, Inc. in the spare bedroom of his home in Winston-Salem, NC.

Three years later Ken purchased a full manufacturing facility in Lexington,

NC to best serve both the paper and wood industry in the area. This included furniture manufacturers to label makers. By the 1990's the company had grown to 26 employees.

In 2004 Ken and several key employees designed and created the TRM filter. This filter was ideal with a small footprint, under unit bag collection, and easy maintenance. 300 TRM filters have been installed to date.

In 2018 Air Craftsmen, Inc. was acquired by Bruning & Federle Manufacturing located in Statesville, NC. The headquarters, machinery, and spare part inventory has since moved to Statesville as well. Ken Hodges has remained with the company, bringing his 60+ years of experience with him.

Air Craftsmen, Inc. provides solutions for its customers in partnership with Moldow, BaleMaster, BloAPCo, and along with in-house manufactured items. We offer a full line of spare parts and provide maintenance as required.
