Previously known as WorkPoint Environments Ltd, we are a family-owned company with over 30 years combined experience within the dust and fume extraction industry.
All our products are built to order in our factory located in the East of England; all products are assembled from stock components allowing us to maintain short lead times.
We specialise in downdraught extraction systems, providing a demonstrable working solution to a wide range of dust and fume problems.
We demonstrate our solutions on site prior to purchase, to ensure both buyers and operators are confident that our products are the correct solution and are usable in day-to-day operation.
We provide solutions to specific problems using standard modular components and filtersets allowing rapid delivery.
Our solutions are generally self-contained and require no installation.
Until February 2011, we were known as WorkPoint Environments Ltd. We changed our company name to reflect our primary product; as the UK's leading downdraught bench manufacturer, being called AirBench Ltd helps our customers identify us and understand our speciality.
