Our History

In 1996 Tuthill Corporation purchased the Kinney Vacuum Company (founded in 1907) followed by the purchase of Atlantic Fluidics in 1999.  In 2002, these operations were combined with Tuthill Pneumatics Group, manufacturer of the world-renowned M-D Pneumatics™ rotary blowers and vacuum boosters.  This integration of operations formed Tuthill Vacuum & Blower Systems (TVBS), the sole manufacturer of Kinney® and Atlantic Fluidics® brands of vacuum pumps.  M-D Pneumatics™ became part of the Tuthill family in 1988.

Since the creation of TVBS, it has expanded with two complete service and repair facilities in Avon, Massachusetts, and El Monte, California, along with fully equipped manufacturing facilities in Springfield, Missouri and Bueños Aires, Argentina.

Excellence at work. Excellence in life.
