Celebrating 25 years in Virginia Beach, Air-Tite Products is expanding!
Since 1997, Air-Tite Products has been in a single location, 565 Central Drive in Virginia Beach. As our staff and volume of products increased, space presented increasing challenges.
Timing can be everything. Once space became available next door at 567 Central Drive, Air-Tite absorbed that additional space (about 8,000 square feet). We recently connected the two buildings with a 4,000 square foot warehouse expansion.
Nearly the same time, the tenant in the building on the other side (563 Central Drive) was moving to a new location, which allowed Air-Tite to relocate our administrative offices, sales and marketing team, and customer service team. Once the staff was moved, we created a beautiful space in the “old” building for our full team to share experiences. Mailing addresses remain the same.
Air-Tite Products is now better equipped to support our suppliers, customers, and distributors than ever before.
