McQuay Drops PTAC Product
Line, Air Distributors Introduces Replacements.
McQuay announces they will discontinue their PTAC product line. Air
Distributors now stocking replacements for McQuay PTAC units.
Applied, formerly McQuay International, shocked the HVAC industry in
March 2014 with the announcement that the entire PTAC product line
would be discontinued. In fact, the last day to place an order for
PTAC units was March 31, 2014. McQuay has been manufacturing PTAC
units for over 50 years under the brand names McQuay, Singer,
Remington, and Climate Control.
"The news of McQuay PTAC units being discontinued came as a shock,"
said Greg McNary, General Manager of Air Distributors. McNary also
stated "we suspected this decision was coming, but not this soon.
McQuay had announced earlier that the plant would close, but
production would be moved to another plant." McQuay later changed
its decision to move production in favor of dropping the PTAC
product line altogether.

contractors to be as good or better than the original. "We
wanted to be sure that our customers had a quality alternative,"
added McNary. Air Distributors currently stocks replacements for
the McQuay PNES/ENH/Series 16, the McQuay PDAE/PMES/MEA/EA, the
McQuay PKES/MEK/K, and the PDHE/PMRS/RS PTAC units, with more on
The discontinuation of McQuay PTACs brings Air Distributors new

offer a top quality replacement PTAC. Customers will appreciate
the competitive price point as well.
