According to the www.nujournal.com, MAT Industries LLC purchased the Coleman Powermate operation in 2008.
They further report that “MAT Holdings, Inc., is a $600 million privately held company supplying hardware, air compressors and automotive parts and accessories in North America and worldwide. MAT Holdings, Inc. is currently headquartered in Lincolnshire, Ill.”
Coleman Powermate seems to focus on reciprocating air compressors and offer a fairly wide range of portable compressors for the contractor and for the DIY home workshop. They also offer an industrial line of two stage compressors, with the largest tank being an 120 gallon horizontal tank style. Rounding out their line is a couple of gasoline powered wheelbarrow type compressors for the contractors.
Powermate also offers a range of air accessories and air tools to complement their air compressor lines.

Powermate Air Compressor Manuals
If you visit the www.powermate.com and follow the compressors link, then the manuals link, a full list of Coleman Powermate manuals are available for download.
Powermate air compressors are available from Home Depot, on line, and other select distributors nationwide.
One thing I like about Powermate is the available list of their 2,000 or so repair depots around North America, found on their website under service centers. Pop in your zip code, and you’ll find the closest immediately.
Over the years Powermate’s air compressors were sold under the following brand names. (Source: autobodystore.com)
