Colombo has a long history and proven track record designing, engineering, manufacturing and installing delivery systems. Colombo began installing pneumatic tube systems throughout the Midwest in 1970. Early on, the leadership team identified a need for custom solutions to meet each customer’s specific needs. In 1982, Colombo began applying its knowledge and experience in the pneumatic tube industry to designing, engineering and manufacturing its own line of specialized systems and products for specific market applications.
In 1998, while installing pneumatic tube systems for Motor City Casino, Colombo was asked to install pneumatic tube-style piping to be used for their beverage delivery system, or what is now known in the industry as a “beverage CHASE®” system. A beverage CHASE system is the conduit used to enclose and distribute the beverage lines throughout a facility where beverages are served. The relationships established and the knowledge gained during this project opened doors to an entirely new industry.
The following year, Colombo developed a full product line for the beverage industry and subsequently applied and received patents on two of its new products. Colombo continues to expand manufacturing of the most complete beverage CHASE product line.
