McQuay UK becomes Daikin Applied

Daikin-AppliedUK: Chiller and ahu supplier McQuay (UK) is to follow its US and European operations by changing its name to Daikin Applied.

The name change to Daikin Applied (UK) becomes operative on April 1. At the same time its UK service and maintenance arm, McQuay Service, will follow suit by being rebranded Daikin Applied Service

Jim Henley, general manager at McQuay (UK) Ltd, explained: “The decision to rename McQuay (UK) Ltd and McQuay Service is part of a global rebranding strategy to more clearly define and communicate our hvac offering to the UK and markets worldwide.”

McQuay came into the Daikin circle in 2006 when the Japanese manufacturer acquired McQuay’s Malaysian owner OYL, along with its sister companies J&E Hall and AAF/McQuay.

McQuay changed its name to Daikin Applied in the US in 2013 and repeated the name change in Europe last year.

Despite the name change, the UK company’s legal status and office address and contact details remain the same.

“The company’s business remains fundamentally unaffected by this change,” said Jim Henley. “All contracts with existing customers, suppliers and stakeholders will remain unaltered, with corresponding obligations and rights assumed under the new names.”

As part of the rebrand, a new website will be launched on April 1 at
