Company History

Celebrating 59 Years Joe Henderson

Sahara Air Products, a Division of Henderson Engineering Co., Inc., was founded in 1957 by Joe Henderson to provide engineered solutions for air system problems. Mr. Henderson's philosophy was to thoroughly examine the unique requirements of each customer and to develop the most economical and reliable system solution for that application. Sahara's reputation for high quality, innovative products, and customer loyalty quickly grew. This trademark of engineered solutions exists at Sahara today, as the third generation of Hendersons continue the tradition of product excellence and customer service.

"Our father taught us the importance of customer service", said Terry Henderson, President. "As a family business, we understand the needs of our customers and can respond quickly with the best solution for each individual application."


The heart of our company has always been engineering; finding novel solutions to our customers' unique applications. Your Sahara sales engineer has the expertise to review your plant air system and design the optimum engineered solution. This saves you time and money.
