Our History

Dating back to 1886, Cullum & Brown started as a small family-owned water well drilling business serving the Kansas City area. We later expanded into the company you know now, supplying air compressors, blowers, and pumps to those in our surrounding area! We have a rich history of helping our customers find the right equipment they need for their manufacturing businesses and provide them with the services to keep that equipment up and running. We then moved farther into the midwest and set up shop in Springfield, Missouri in addition to our Kansas City location. Cullum & Brown now services 59 counties in Missouri and 24 counties in Kansas and we look forward to working with more people throughout the midwest in the coming years.

Today, we are your ultimate source for service, sales, and rentals of compressors, blowers, vacuum, and pumps serving Missouri and Kansas with 37 employees (and counting!). From installation to world-class service, our goal is to keep you up & running so you never have to worry about unnecessary downtime for your business.
