More Air Compressor Brands

If you are seeking information about different brands of air compressors, or about one specific air compressor brand, then this page helps.

Over the last few years we have seen a huge proliferation of different brands of air compressors available to industry and to the home or small shop DIY compressor users.

It would be good if all air compressor brands had varied channels to market, and those channels would have an understanding of air compressors and how they work, and they both supported the brand with repairs and provided the supply of parts for that air compressor.

Unfortunately, many of the air compressors on the market today are sold by stores with staff that have no knowledge of how air compressors work, and they stock virtually no spare parts for the upkeep of their air compressor lines.
