About Us

About Young & Bertke Air Systems Co.

Young & Bertke Air Systems Co. began in 1920 as Young & Bertke Co., manufacturing industrial ovens and industrial washing and finishing machines as well as dust collection systems and specialty sheet metal fabrications.  Eventually the company split in two, creating Young & Bertke Air Systems Co.

Our original building sat across from the Cincinnati Reds’ home at Crosley Field. In 1925, Youbert, our 18 ½ foot tall, 2,500 pound, size 60 shoe-wearing, walking mechanical man, took his place atop our building where he walked for more than 80 years.  Young & Bertke even gave away Reds tickets to fans who correctly guessed  how many miles Youbert walked during a game.  During his lifetime, Youbert walked the equivalent of 14 trips around the world.

Over 100 years later, Young & Bertke Air Systems Co. is still designing and manufacturing the best dust collection and air pollution control systems for companies around the United States as well as Canada and Mexico.  We would be honored to use our expertise to help you find solutions to your air quality issues.
