American Air Filter (AAF International) carries a wide range of air quality products including air filters and dust collectors. They provide filtration systems to residential homes and commercial installations. They market furnace and air filters under several brands including AmAir, Perfect Pleat and StrataDensity.
Auto painter William M. Reed found a way to keep dust off his newly painted cars in 1921. He made filters from steel wool and chicken wire. His invention became so popular that he soon stopped painting cars and
went into the filter business.
Today the company is an international conglomerate and markets under the brand names American Air Filter, AAF and AmAir.
