Supported by Parker Hannifin, Avilo was founded by Jaap van Vliet as a Parker membrane technology distributor in 2001. Operating from his own home, distributing standard Parker generators and provisioning the OEM-market was his core-business. In 2005 the first generators, fitted with parker nitrogen membranes, were build independently. Avilo's own production line was borne.

Later on larger units were manufactured in close cooperation with a subcontractor. With production outgrowing the premises, the company moved to Dirksland in 2008. More specialists were hired to strengthen the company and production lines were added.

In 2009 Parker Hannefin made Avilo an official Sales&Service partner. To obtain this rank Avilo engineers received the highest product training available at the generator factories in engeland, a status that is unique within the benelux. Nowadays Avilo is a global supplier of Gas generators, OEM parts and compressed air systems with a worldwide reach.
