1937

In 1937, Quincy launched QR-25 series, which is efficient, durable and reliable.Quincy became synonymous with "high quality."

1966

In 1966, Quincy Compressor was purchased by Colt Industries. This change in ownership set the stage for the development of the rotary screw compressor line.

1980

In 1980 we began machining and manufacturing operations in our Bay Minette, Alabama, plant, where we manufactured our rotary screw compressors.

2004

In 2004, we expanded into Kunshan, China, as we opened Q-Tech Air Systems, Ltd. Q-Tech currently employs about 35 people and is expanding. This facility assembles and tests Global rotary screw compressors. The first official production was in July 2004, and the official opening of the facility was in September 2004.

2009

On December 18, 2009, Quincy Compressor was purchased by Atlas Copco. The acquisition is the first time in our history that Quincy will be owned by a company whose business objectives are very much the same as ours. And, most importantly to our heritage, Quincy continues to retain its own brand identity.
