In 1971 Danair was founded from the Dana Corporation flight department. The first products manufactured were towbars for the Learjet, Falcon Jet and Gulfstream GI. Maintaining its focus on the customer, Danair added more product lines to assist customers, including jacks and hydraulic power units, and continued to grow until they were sold to Tronco. The company changed its name to Tronair after the acquisition and moved from a 5,000 square foot facility in Maumee, Ohio to its present location a 300,000 square foot facility in Swanton, a suburb of Toledo, Ohio.
Since then Tronair has differentiated itself in the market by offering a diverse and unparalleled range of high quality GSE product lines. The extensive engineering capabilities and customer collaborations drive innovative solutions that support safe and efficient aircraft ground operations. The Tronair family includes Columbus Jack, DAE, DatcoMedia, Eagle Tugs, and Malabar. Tronair supports its customers with a global network of factory trained and authorized service centers.
