Transtar adds AC product line

Transtar Industries has launched a new line of vehicle air conditioning parts, components and tools. The Transtar AC product line is the organization’s first entry into non-transmission or driveline parts.

According to the company, the Transtar AC product line offers a complete line of air conditioning parts and covers thousands of vehicles from 1970 to today, including aftermarket clutches and compressors, condensers and evaporators and expansion valves.

“Vehicles are evolving, and so are our customers’ parts needs,” said Tom DeMille, executive vice president of Transtar. “We’ve supported shops since three-speed transmissions, and we’ll be there to support them with other complex vehicle repair, hybrid batteries and anything else the future of automotive throws our way.”
