AAI, A Power-Flo Technologies Company has been in business for nearly 70 years. We employ 100 people and our main facilities are located in Auburn, New York. AAI built a new, fully integrated 50,000 sq. ft. facility in early 1998. Since then, we have added a full-service 33,000 sq. ft. warehouse & counter sales office in Syracuse. On January 1, 2011, AAI completed it's acquisition of Great Lakes Controls of New York, based in Rochester, NY. The 20,000 sq. ft. Rochester branch combines both a high-tech automation training center, warehouse and counter sales operation together under one roof.

 

In Feburary of 2014, AAI acquired an apparatus repair operation in Oriskany, NY to expand our apparatus repair and service capabilities. Most recently AAI acquired Armor Electric (2014) and United/Richter Electric Motors (2018) to complement our new Buffalo branch location. The Buffalo location will combine a warehouse and counter sales operation, high tech automation training center and an electrical apparatus repair and service center in one 50,000 sq. ft. facility.

 

We serve a market area that extends north to Massena, NY, south to Scranton, PA, east to Albany, NY and west to Buffalo, NY. AAI has evolved into a unique company, with the capabilities of an electrical products distributor, manufacturer, and service organization all rolled into one. We are a true "From Power to Process" supplier of electrical products and services. Our employees have over 1000 years of combined experience in the electrical equipment business.
