LOUISVILLE — Daikin Applied, formerly McQuay International, discontinued the entire PTAC product line. 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. "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."

According to the company, McQuay later changed its decision to move production in favor of dropping the PTAC product line altogether.

In anticipation, Air Distributors has been working with manufacturers to get replacements to market and are now in stock. The company noted that these replacements have been widely accepted by customers and contractors.

"We wanted to be sure that our customers had a quality alternative," noted 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 way.
