With the millennium bringing many changes in government backed PFI funding for public infrastructure projects the demand for modern conveyance systems in new UK hospital projects opened a new and exciting market. Aerocom products had formerly been introduced to the UK market early in the 1990’s and rebranded by the various agencies supplying these systems.

Pre-millennium John Hughes MBA already had firmly established the aerocom brand name in Ireland and founded aerocom (UK) Ltd in 2000, joining his APT Group of Companies, doing so expanded the groups technical support in design and manufacture.

Now the leading supplier of Pneumatic Tube Systems in the British Isles, the APT Group provides aerocom (UK) Ltd with buying power for the benefit of both our existing and future customers.
