    It appears that Airetex is no more. I have been unable to contact Airetex for several weeks and drove by their location to find an eviction notice on the door.
    No response to emails or phone calls. Hopefully Alkin can supply any needed parts in the future.

    Wow.  I was saving up for a 45 but ended up getting an Omega Super Charger instead. Did they have more than the TX store or are you referring to a different location?

    The only location I know of is in Arlington TX. That is where I went. I purchased a compressor from them about 6 months ago mainly because I could pick it up locally.
    It has been great so far with 5 hours run time (many fills of my 95 cu. ft. tank) but now I need to find a source of support in case parts are ever needed.

    Wow, I talked to them back in the fall and was told that they were downsizing and that they had no compressors but could get me one by February. I’ve since gotten an Altaros booster. Good luck with your Airtex, I hope it gives you good service.

    Same here, called throughout the holidays and no response; the voicemail doesn’t even match the company. Also, the web site doesn’t spec prices and won’t allow ordering. Too bad, Bruce seems like a great guy and avid air rifler.

    Alkin compressor from Turkey is the precursor to the Airtex. Airtex may still be using some of their parts. If you are in need of repair or replacement parts this would be a place to start. Alkin compressor is still being manufactured. That all I got guys, just remember when I was researching compressors. Saw this info on the yellow forum. I do not know if it is distributed here in the US,

    When I talked to Bruce, the owner, he did mention that the heads were made in turkey but the bottom end was Chinese.

    “mrjohns”Airetex Compressors has listing on Ebay fpr the Airetex 45.


    Unfortunately, you’ll see the listings were last updated in June, 2016. Try calling the 1-800 number listed in the listing and you’ll get an automated response not associated with AirTex. 

    I’d be very hesitant to order any of these (even if they actually exist) without first talking to Bruce, the owner.

    FYI.. we are not affiliated with Airetex anymore. Airetex used to sell our compressors in the past but due to poor customer service they provided and their short warranty period, we have stopped working with them and started our own distribution network and servicing in the States. We carry all the parts and products in NJ warehouse with plenty stock.

    This is a scam. I have found the same statement from this cat in several forums here.
    One shows his distributors? most of them are Bruce’s web page he hijacked.

    I just got linked here for referring Bruce for one, and Crosman's new compressor as another.

    I'm so sorry for my misleading info. All I thought I knew seems not true. My apologies.
