Company History

This is what happens when you combine two great things together..

IDQ is celebrating over 40 years in business providing automotive air conditioning products for the DIY (Do it Yourself) and Professional (DIFM) trades. In 2008 a merger of the two preeminent companies in the Automotive AC Recharge category, Interdynamics and EF Products (Quest) led to the creation of IDQ..

Interdynamics was founded in 1970 in Brooklyn, NY by the Trachtenburg brothers, and is credited with creating one of the first “do-it-yourself” automotive AC recharge kits..

EF Products (Quest), founded in 1993 in Dallas, TX by the Quest family, created the first closed system retrofit kit for automotive AC systems..

IDQ’s innovations over the years include the first D-I-Y charging kit, patented, in-line gauges, easy-to-use dispensers, and lock on quick-connectors that make recharging fast and easy. Our first retrofit kit was introduced over 15 years ago allowing DIY customers to convert from R-12 to R-134a with minimal cost (as compared to replacing an entire A/C system through a repair shop). We introduced our single-step Super Seal leak sealer that seals leaks in both metal and rubber components, and more recently introduced our premium brand of lubricants and oil charges with patented Ice32® performance enhancers. As we continue to innovate we create easier ways for consumers to recharge their own vehicle AC systems quickly while saving money..

Today, IDQ operates and services our customers from our world headquarters in Garland, TX just outside of Dallas. This allows us to quickly and efficiently service our customers. This same facility includes our Technical Support Team, Purchasing, Customer Support and Sales..

In addition we also maintain an office in Mt. Kisco, NY that houses Financial Functions, Marketing, R&D, Customer Service, and Sales..

IDQ is a Portfolio Company of the private equity firm Kinderhook Industires.
