Our Company

Our Company


Limco (Long Island Metal Company) was established in 1946 in New York as a manufacturer of precision parts for the aircraft, electronics, industrial, government and commercial markets. Limco specialized in high efficient Plate & Fin and Tube-type Heat Exchangers, Environmental Control Systems (ECS,) Oil Coolers, Condensers, Fuel Heaters and Precoolers.

Airepair International was established in 1974 in Tulsa, OK specializing in clean/test, repair, overhaul and core replacement of Heat Exchangers, Precoolers, Condensers, Reheaters, Oil Coolers, Water Extractors and Ozone Converters.

The company distinguished itself in the industry, and gained the attention of Limco’s investors in the early 90’s. Airepair was formally acquired in 1992 to serve as the FAA certified repair station for many of the same platforms for which Limco manufactured.

In 1995, Limco was moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to merge and form Limco Airepair, Inc. from the two Heat Transfer industry leaders. Each company came with expertise that together formed a corporation capable of supporting both OEM and MRO Heat Transfer needs. Limco Airepair, Inc. rebranded in 2019 to TAT Limco, and today the company is housed in a 120,000 square foot in five facilities in West Tulsa.

Since 2010 TAT Limco has updated our methods and facilities drastically in order to follow lean manufacturing principles. With this re-organization, TAT Limco has established its commitment to quality and consistency. TAT Limco’s focus is to constantly look for expansion opportunities in order to be a better solution provider for our customers. This dedication to flexibility and customer care has become the cornerstone of our entire corporate culture.
