Meet the Team

Murray Closter – Owner and Managing Director

With over 30 years’ experience, Murray’s knowledge of the compressed air industry is unsurpassed. After working with Compair, Whelan Rentals and Coates Hire, Murray and Tony Foster decided to start their own company, Air Powered Services in 1992. After the first few pioneering years Tony left the business. Originally located in Brunswick, Air Powered quickly outgrew the premises, moving to Airport West. Further expansion fuelled the move to purpose built premises in Tullamarine.

Murray is committed to continual growth through innovation and the development of specialist products and services. It is because of this that Air Powered  are trusted partners in the compressed air industry in Hire, Sales and Service.
