McQuay is a brand under Daikin Industries, renowned for its expertise in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) solutions. These solutions cater primarily to the commercial and industrial air conditioning sectors.

The McQuay brand traces its roots back to 1933 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was founded by J.M. McQuay, initially focusing on manufacturing pipe-threaded machines. By 1947, the company had diversified into producing cooling units and air conditioning systems, primarily for commercial towers.

Over time, the company broadened its manufacturing reach, establishing facilities in diverse global regions, such as the Far East, the Middle East, and Europe, to cater to international markets more effectively.

2006 Japan’s Daikin Industries acquired McQuay for approximately $1.7 billion. As a subsidiary of Daikin, McQuay primarily targets the large commercial HVAC systems segment. The brand’s offerings include chillers, rooftop units, air handlers, and controls suitable for various environments, ranging from offices and data centers to hotels, factories, and retail stores.

The brand is particularly recognized for its innovative energy efficiency approach, emphasizing magnetic bearing compressors. McQuay finds its competition among brands such as Carrier, Trane, York, and Hitachi in the commercial HVAC market.

Today, the brand boasts a worldwide network of independent sales representatives and distributors. The company takes pride in having installed over 175,000 large-scale HVAC systems across the globe.
