NFPA Company Profiles for NFPA News

With NFPA membership at an all-time high, publishing a short profile of an NFPA member each week is one way for us to highlight the diversity and strength of our industry. Today’s Company is Proportion Air Inc.

ProportionAir_newweb_logoJoining NFPA in 2013, McCordsville, IN based Proportion-Air, Inc. is a manufacturer of electronic air pressure regulators and air flow control valves. Proportion-Air, Inc. was founded in 1985 by corporate President Daniel E. Cook to capitalize on the sales and marketing prospects of the unique invention of an electronic air pressure regulator. This air pressure device was designed to accept a variety of electronic analog and digital signals in order to control pneumatic pressures with extreme accuracy while negating the effects of vibration, mounting position or environmental concerns. Proportion-Air’s “dual loop” technology allows closed loop control using many different downstream sensors in order to control many different processes and applications.


Brent Archer, Vice President of Operations, became involved with NFPA soon after Proportion Air joined the Association through the NFPA Future Leaders Network. Brent also attended both the 2013 and 2014 Annual Conference. In addition, Burt Courtney and Kert Toler attended NFPA’s 2013 Chicago Regional Meeting. Find out more about Proportion Air at
