Company Profile

DOING OUR PART FOR OVER 60 YEARS

Conair was founded in 1956 to invent and manufacture equipment that would help the growing number of plastics processors get up and running efficiently and profitably, with higher levels of quality. And, we’re still doing our part to help you make your plastic products today.

No company stays in business for 60 years without continuing to do the kinds of things that brought them success in the first place. To start with, we still make auxiliary equipment -- from dryers to blenders to post-extrusion equipment, and everything in between -- designed to deliver exceptional performance, rugged reliability and easy maintenance. But it’s not just about individual products. When it comes to complete processing systems, Conair has unparalleled experience and knowledge, plus a diverse product line, process-engineering capabilities and organizational depth to see even the most complex project through from start to finish.

After installation, you’ll appreciate the aftermarket support for which Conair is so well known. Our 24/7/365 support system puts you in immediate touch with more than 30 full-time in-house parts and service professionals. Over 35 trained and certified field-service personnel in the U.S. and Mexico mean almost every Conair customer is within 150 miles of a service technician. We have over 1.5 million parts in stock and we average same- or next-day shipping almost 90% of the time. 

A lot has changed over the last six decades, but this much has not: Conair is still doing our part to help processors like you make yours … faster …lighter… stronger… greener… more efficiently… more consistently and…of course, more profitably.
