Our founder, Bruce Polley has been involved in this industry for three generations. In the 1940's his grandfather owned a manufacturing company that made sandblasting and dust collection systems. In 1980 his father opened a distribution company selling and servicing blast cleaning and dust collection systems where Bruce worked with his father, brother, and mother. In 1990 Bruce established Blast Cleaning Services in Sherwood Oregon to sell and service blast cleaning and dust collection systems. By 1998, the dust collection side of the business had grown to the point that the decision was made to give it its own name. Air-Tek Northwest was established as a D.B.A. of Blast Cleaning Services Inc. in 1998.
