Welcome to Air International Thermal Systems,

On behalf of our more than 1500 global employees, I welcome you to our website and look forward to being able to provide you with some insight into the value of the Air International Thermal Systems organization.  Whether you are one of our many existing customers in the global automotive market, a customer who has not yet experienced the Air International (AI) difference, one of our many supplier partners or an interested potential employee, I am excited to be able to review with you a brief summary of our organization and share with you our vision;

At Air International Thermal Systems our Vision is clear: We will be our customer’s preferred supplier of choice and our competitor’s benchmark”.  For almost 50 years, we have been singularly focused on automotive thermal systems and our team members in 10 countries serve our more than 30 customers every day driven by 3 guiding principles:

Our extensive system’s engineering expertise in climate control technology creates a passenger comfort experience that is second to none.  Our industry unique control system algorithms and CAE capabilities optimize power consumption in the vehicle’s powertrain, whether gasoline, diesel, electric or hybrid, to provide the most environmentally efficient vehicle possible.

With expanding locations in China, Thailand, the United States, Mexico, Australia, Europe, India and soon in Brazil, our 20 manufacturing locations and 10 technical centers service automotive companies around the globe.  Our approach to manufacturing and product supply provides a true competitive advantage, offering both lower piece cost and reduced transportation costs, for a benefit that is instantly recognizable to our customers.  However, it is our unsurpassed quality that is even more exciting to our customers and leaves an even longer lasting impression. 

In fact, our components, modules and systems have been recognized globally as best in industry, best in class and best in segment by the world’s toughest critics; vehicle owners around the world.  Over our long history and across the markets we serve, AITS has continually been presented with top industry quality awards and recognitions from our customers. 

For all of us at AI, it is absolutely about delivering the best value possible.  That’s my commitment to you and to our customers. 

At AITS, we have established a culture of trust, respect, passion and accountability that results in a partnership approach to our customers, supplier partners and employees.  We truly believe that this culture sets AITS apart from other suppliers.  It is the personal care we provide, the hands on approach across all levels of the team and the attention to detail given that results in customers coming back to AITS for program after program.  Our history is full of examples of our employees going beyond the call of duty to assure customers receive the attention they deserve and the results that are more than expected. 

I invite you to experience  first-hand the compelling value proposition offered by AITS and why we have been one of the fastest growing Climate Systems providers in the global automotive industry.  I look forward to spending time with you to better understand how AITS can make you one of our extremely delighted customers, partners or employees and how we can work together to assure Air International is our customer’s preferred supplier of choice.
