Bostitch air compressors is also in the business of hand tools. Why sell air compressors?
I believe that Bostitch focuses on the hand tool business, including a broad range of air tools, and they offer Bostitch air compressors to augment the sale of air tools. If you are in the market for an air tool and need an air compressor to run it, why not get a compressor from the same brand? Makes a one stop stop if you have issues with either the air tools or the compressor.
Ever wonder about how the name Bostitch came about? How about the Boston Wire Stitcher Company. Over the years the name was contracted to Bostitch.
The thing is Bostitch, like so many other brands of air compressors, are not made by Bostitch. They are private-labeled for them with the Bostitch markings, and sold through the Bostitch outlets.
That they don’t make them makes the supply of spare parts, and the knowledge to specify what spare part is needed, as suspect. The Bostitch air compressors are sold through all the big box stores North America wide. Ever seen any spare parts for the Bostitch compressor pump or electric motor at any of these outlets? Not likely.
Lots of used Bostitch air compressors can be found on all on-line auction sites.
