Our History


Clean Air America, Inc. was founded by Bertil and Antoinette Brahm and began operations in Western Kentucky.

Bertil and Antoinette immigrated to the US looking to follow their American dream. Bertil was born in Sweden and used his experience selling industrial air quality products to set up his operation on American soil.

Bertil was known for his direct communication style. When he wasn’t running around the plant making sure everything was running, he enjoyed relaxing with some homemade wings and beer.

A fan of photography, some of his pictures decorate the plant to this day.


Clean Air America quickly outgrew it’s operations and moved to Rome, GA where we began assembling in a small plant while our main plant was being built.


In 1998, after much anticipation, our current home was finally completed at 7 Superior Dr SE, in Rome, GA — 38,000 square feet and 35 employees. Suddenly with all the equipment available to cut, bend, weld, and powder coat, Clean Air America was able to meet their customers’ stringent delivery needs.


One of our premier products, the WeldStation™,was launched and has since become the industry standard for fume extraction in trade schools and welding labs.

WeldStations are now in hundreds of schools across the United States and Canada.


Clean Air America, Inc. expands product offerings and shipping to Mexico market.


Long-time leader of product development and sales expansion, Jorgen Brahm, son of Bertil Brahm, is appointed President and takes ownership of Clean Air America, Inc.

Jorgen lead Clean Air America into a new period of profitability by aggressivley expanding his sales team and developing new products.

With a focus on innovation there was always two or three new products in R&D development. One of his top priorities was bringing Clean Air America to the forefront of automation and IOT with his development of the EVO controls.
