DAE Systems started as Dynamic-Air Engineering, incorporated in 1942 in Los Angeles, CA by Harry Glascock. Harry developed what is believed to be the first fan-forced airborne convection heater for the Army Air Corps in 1942. From these beginnings, Harry’s company established a reputation unsurpassed in providing custom, high reliability air management solutions. In 1964, the company headquarters moved from Los Angeles to where it remains today in Orange County, CA.
Through out its history the company has remained in the family, which has fostered a culture where customers and employees are treated as honored members of the extended family. After Harry Glascock died, his wife Nancy assumed control of the company full time. Nancy was assisted by her daughter and son-in-law, Sharon and Hugh Morrison, who took executive roles in day to day operations. Nancy retired in 1990, while Sharon and Hugh continued to grow the business. Jeremy Morrison, the son of Sharon and Hugh, joined the company in 1997 following his father’s death. Jeremy is now President of the company. Sharon continues today as our CEO. We are proud that both Jeremy and Sharon remain accessible to customers, ,suppliers and employees and have continued the family tradition in our company through three generations.
Dynamic-Air Engineering is the financial entity behind DAE Systems and the flagship brand. Dynamic-Air Engineering, Inc. is a manufacturer of military and FAA qualified scalable custom air moving systems for the commercial aerospace and defense markets. Over the years, Dynamic Air Engineering became DAE Systems, by adding several divisions with specialized products and services.
MilMotion joined DAE in 1976. MilMotion designs and builds MIL and FAA qualified custom motion components and systems for the defense, medical, and resource exploration markets as well as other demanding applications.
In 2001 DAE purchased Ripley, an off-the-shelf catalog company providing industrial grade blowers, electric motors, and air filters for industrial processes, heavy equipment, commercial aviation and general-purpose applications. As the Ripley business continued to grow and focus in three areas of movement (solid, liquid, air) the name was changed to TriNertia to reflect the product offerings of blowers, motors, and pumps.
In 2004, AMPrecise was added to the DAE family providing “build to print” machining services that fabricate precision metal components for any market requiring precise tolerances, as well as offering subassembly services to their customers.
Finally, Mil3PL, a third party logistics service grew out of DAE’s existing FAA related repair business and defense storage contracts serving both defense and commercial markets.
For 65 years DAE has served and helped to define the defense, aerospace, and commercial industries around the globe. Contact DAE for additional information or a quote. We look forward to hearing from you.
