History of AQE and our Air Filtration Systems

Our mission to meet or exceed our customer expectations by providing outstanding and innovative air cleaning equipment, exceptional technical support and aspiring to operational excellence is founded in our history.

Air Quality Engineering, Inc. was organized as Smokemaster, Inc. in 1973 emphasizing design, development and sales of air filtration systems and air cleaners for removal of tobacco smoke.

In 1974 we marked the beginning of our relationship with Honeywell when we agreed to produce commercial air cleaners for this major manufacturer, an agreement that would last 10 years. Shortly thereafter we also began offering industrial air filtration system design and production services to Honeywell.

In 1984 Honeywell’s decision to manufacture their own commercial units provided AQE with the opportunity to develop our own worldwide commercial marketing organization. Simultaneously, we purchased Honeywell’s industrial air cleaner business and became an important competitor in the air filtration system’s market. At this time it was clear that a new and more comprehensive name would better reflect our broader product range and we became Air Quality Engineering, Inc. in 1984.

Our electronic air cleaners offer all modular solid-state components. All of our equipment is designed for low maintenance, energy efficiency and optimal collection efficiency.

Air Quality Engineering, Inc. has drawn on its years of experience to manufacture complete air filtration systems that provide the most filtration performance, efficiency and capacity for the money. Our experience has led to the unique Coanda airflow pattern increasing the performance of the unit as well as heat distribution of your environment, our patent pending variable voltage technology to increase filtration efficiency and variable speed controls to fit the demands of the moment.

We serve our customers by designing, manufacturing and marketing the most cost-effective high-quality air cleaners in the industry. We continue to operate on the basis of providing practical productive equipment and honest answers, and in the belief that delivering on our promises is one of our most effective sales tools.
