Company Overview

Air Performance specializes in the design, manufacture and painting of Commercial Architectural Louvers, Sun Shades, Brake Metal and other specialized architectural metal products. The owners and team at Air Performance LLC have extensive experience in both the louver and exterior façade industry.

With a strong background in product design, engineering, and manufacturing, as well as a continuous focus on cost control, Air Performance is able to offer quality architectural aluminum products at a very competitive price point. The company’s focus on extraordinary customer service and quick project turnaround, provides its customers with real advantages in completing projects on time, and at/or below budget.

Originally founded in 2005, the company was restructured and recapitalized in 2011 with new ownership and entered into a significant growth phase.

This growth was fueled by a rapid expansion of the company’s 3D drafting/programming staff, additional CNC machining capability, further automation of paint line mixing capabilities, and addition of fully certified Aluminum Fabrication Technicians.

In mid-2017 the owners entered into agreement with United Enertech Holdings, LLC to transfer majority ownership and merge the Company into the United Enertech family of Companies. This acquisition brought new investment allowing the completion and outfitting of a second plant adjacent to the original plant facility, tripling the fabrication capacity of the Company. Air Performance then became the Architectural Products arm of the United Enertech Holdings family of companies. United Enertech Inc., a sister company, is located in Chattanooga, TN, and fabricates a wide range of products for the HVAC and architectural market place. 

In 2024, Soler and Palau Ventilation Group (S&P) acquired the United Enertech Holdings group of companies, including Air Conditioning Products, Air Performance, Metal Form Manufacturing, and United Enertech. While the individual company names remain the same, collectively, the group is now known as S&P Air Control.
