Mechanical Engineer II

Air Innovations Inc North Syracuse, NY

Air Innovations is a world leader in designing and building environmental process control systems for applications that can’t be addressed with standard HVAC equipment. We customize packaged solutions for temperature, humidity, filtration, pressurization, and with direct-expansion, chilled-water, or thermoelectric capabilities. Many of Air Innovations customers fall into two categories: businesses integrating our solution into their OEM equipment ( or businesses requiring a complete HVAC solution ( We can meet almost any need in environmental control across almost any industry with major projects in Aerospace where we have designed and manufactured Environmental control units (ECU) for spacecraft before they launch, Military where we have designed and manufactured ECU’s for a variety technically challenging projects, Semiconductor where we have designed and manufactured ECU’s for very precise temperature and humidity control, Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences, and Clean Rooms.
