Master technician Alvaro Collarini began his carburetor business in 1950’s in Brooklyn, N.Y. as NEW LIFE CARBURETOR. As Alvaro’s expert reputation grew so did his business, and in 1969 Alvaro moved to expanded facilities in Central Islip, N.Y. He renamed the business ALLSTATE CARBURETOR, then guided it’s growth for 18 years until his retirement in 1987.
Alvaro’s young apprentice took over the business, and using skills learned from the Master, together with his love for innovation and desire to fix and repair what others can not, he took the company to the next level. Changing the name to Allstate Carburetor & Fuel Injection Inc. a proud name known to professionals and enthusiasts worldwide.
