Our company is located in the North-East of Moselle, in the « Bassin houillerd de Lorraine » which was one of the two major coalfields in France.

In 1974, Jean-Marc BERTOLOTTI, at that time a young engineer, joins “Charbonnages de France » (Public establishment of an industrial and commercial character created in 1946 to manage the French coal mines). He is dedicated to the ventilation of mines in the Lorraine coalfield and acts daily to preserve working conditions and improve the safety of miners.

Thanks to his unique expertise, it was here in Forbach that he decided to create in 2001 the Engineering office AVEC, which later gave birth to the PARTNAIR INDUSTRIES Group.

In 2008, Jean BERTOLOTTI, son of the founder, joins the company to give it a new dynamic. This is how he launched the business of designing, manufacturing, renting and selling ventilation equipment by creating the company PARTNAIR Equipments in 2015.

Today, the PARTNAIR INDUSTRIES Group provides its expertise and innovative solutions on a daily basis to protect the health and improve the working conditions of employees working in enclosed, underground or confined environments.
