Michael started Air Master with one man and one truck in 1983. He ran the service, installation, and sales departments while handling all the accounting himself. His goal wasn’t only to grow the company. He strived to be the best in the industry, offering each customer the “Ritz Carlton” of customer service.
He slowly grew the company until he sold the company to Lennox® in 1999. During that time, Michael joined numerous board seats with many companies, including Arcoaire®, Lennox®, and Mitsubishi, many of which he still holds today. After five years, he bought the company back from Lennox®. Unfortunately, it was half the size as when he had sold it.
After Michael regained control of Air Master in 2004, he worked hard to bring Air Master up to where it was when he left. 12 years later Michael wanted to bring someone on board with the same focus and drive as himself. He worked closely with Michael Canestrelli for many years as his Lennox® sales representative. After much discussion, Canestrelli was brought on board in 2016 as both the general manager and an owner.
