Over a Century of Fascinating History

AeroWest was established in 1883 in Long Island City, NY as the West Disinfecting Company. We are the nation’s oldest manufacturer of products for the promotion of industrial and institutional odor control and environmental hygiene. In 1884, AeroWest began as a producer of coal-tar disinfectant for home use. From this modest start, in what was then an entirely new industry, we have introduced hundreds of items that promote public health, better building maintenance, and new standards of hygiene. AeroWest pioneered the use of liquid soaps, roll paper towels and its exclusive restroom deodorizers.

The former President of the West Disinfecting Co., Emil Taussig, perished when the Titanic sank on April 13, 1912. Mr. Taussig willed shares of the company to his wife and daughter who survived the shipwreck. Despite this tragedy, AeroWest persisted and endures to this day.

130+ Years of Business Excellence Continues

Through continuous research and innovation, AeroWest remains one of the foremost organizations of its kind in the world – and the reason you find AeroWest products used by so many of the nation’s largest hospitals, schools, hotels, plants and office buildings – in virtually every type of public restrooms, including planes and buses.

To this day, AeroWest’s strength is still the excellence of the products & services we provide to our customers. We maintain modern laboratories and promote extensive R&D programs in line with our original concept of service to the health and safety of the public.
