Company Information

The original AMCO was founded in Providence, RI in 1888 manufacturing conventional air washers utilizing compressed air atomization for the air handling and humidifying needs of the textile industry. The present corporation was formed in 1983.  In 1929, the company relocated to North Carolina to follow the movement of the textile industry to the Southeast. In the early years, AMCO served the textile industry with compressed air atomization of water and conventional air washers.

In the 1970's, AMCO entered into new industries. These markets demanded a more economical means of humidifying process air. In response, American Moistening Company developed its direct spray, high-pressure water system. Since the introduction of its high-pressure system, AMCO has installed thousands of systems in the textile, woodworking, printing, automotive, and industrial HVAC markets.

American Moistening Company has applied its knowledge and technical know-how of high-pressure systems to the gas turbine inlet air cooling market.
