How Air Quality Engineering Became a Leader in the Air Cleaner Industry

Air Quality Engineering, Inc. was organized as SmokeMaster in 1969, emphasizing the design, development and sale of air cleaners, specifically for removal of tobacco smoke in commercial applications.

In 1974 we began our relationship with Honeywell, a major manufacturer, when we agreed to produce commercial electronic air cleaners for them – an agreement that would last 10 years. Shortly thereafter, we also began designing and producing Honeywell’s industrial electrostatic precipitators. This line later grew to include disposable mechanical filter systems.

Honeywell’s subsequent decision to manufacture their own brand of commercial air cleaners provided Air Quality Engineering, Inc. with the opportunity to develop our own worldwide market. Simultaneously, we purchased Honeywell’s industrial air cleaner business and became a major supplier of industrial air filtration systems, mist collectors and cigarette smoke removal systems. At this time it was clear that a new and more comprehensive name would better reflect our broader range of systems, and we became Air Quality Engineering, Inc. in 1983.

Our experience and commitment to air purification has brought us to where we are today – manufacturing complete air filtration systems and industrial air filtration products that provide the best performance, efficiency and capacity for the money.
