In 1977, Marvin Cain had a dream – to build the most rugged and reliable air compressors on the market, supported by a commitment to quality and world-class customer service after the sale. Marvin and Barbara Cain built their new business on Christian principles – handling each product and transaction with honesty, integrity and a commitment to high-quality and customer satisfaction.


One of his sons, Matt Cain, was inspired as a young boy by his father’s ingenuity and commitment to quality. Today, Matt Cain is the President of EMAX Compressor. His entrepreneurial background, in the family business, has instilled an innovative team spirit among all employees at EMAX Compressor.


Many US-based competitors, in the compressed air industry have out-sourced their manufacturing to foreign countries and this has come at the expense of the American worker and the U.S. economy. EMAX maintains engineering, service support and manufacturing in the USA. By placing American workers first and monetary gain second, EMAX has built a world class manufacturing operation and patented breakthrough solutions in the compressed air industry.


From our humble beginnings in the basement of a Bank building to our current 60,000 SF manufacturing & distribution facility, located in Englewood, Ohio, just outside of Dayton, EMAX Compressor now sells our air compressors and other air compressor related products through retailers across the nation. To top it off, all of our products are backed by one of the most aggressive warranties in the business.
