In April 2009, VAIREX announced its new, 400 square meter, lean manufacturing facility and blower line. In 2016, the addition of a second assembly line will raise blower capacity to 50,000 units per year.

The Company has 3 models (VRB2, VRB4 & VRB8) in fully tooled production, 2 models (VRB1 & VRB32) available in sample form, and other models in planning or under development.

All models are available with a range of BLDC motors to match power and voltage requirements, as well as two stage versions capable of doubling the pressure or the flow of the base model.

Matched BLDC motor controllers from a number of suppliers are also availabe for all of our products, as well as inlet filters and silencers, as well as mounting brackets, wiring harnesses and other related components.

In 2015, VAIREX received an Advanced Industries Grant from the State of Colorado to support additional blower and controller development.

In 2016, VAIREX received a President's e-Award for excellence in exporting from Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker.
