Graduating Manhattan College with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, Biradar brings 15 years of unparalleled HVAC experience to Air Ideal.

“It’s a phenomenal feeling. A lot of hard work and sacrifice went into getting here. We are very proud of our company and the efforts it [has] taken for us to continue to grow and flourish … It was a long road to get here. I took a lot of risks and worked very hard. Immigrating from India, graduating Manhattan College, becoming a U.S. Citizen, becoming an owner, and growing Air Ideal — I am very proud of these milestones.” – Vijay Biradar, CEO/Partner at Air Ideal
With Biradar now at the helm, Air Ideal is officially a Certified Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE) under Article 15-A of the Executive Law — which demarcates a business be “at least fifty-one percent (51%) owned, operated and controlled by citizens or permanent resident aliens who [meet] the ethnic definitions” of either Black, Hispanic, Asian-Pacific, Asian-Indian Subcontinent, or Native American/Alaskan Native.
Prior to his appointment as CEO, Biradar served as an Estimator for Admore Air Conditioning Corporation in Yonkers, New York for over 10 years. Joining the Air Ideal team in 2017, Biradar touts several major accomplishments — including winning multiple high profile fitouts in NYC and “completing a multi-floor fit out for Macy’s in Long Island City,” which Biradar notes “gave us the confidence to go against the larger competitors in the market.”
