Quincy Compressor in Bay Minette was recently recognized at the North Baldwin Chamber’s Annual Meeting + Dinner for developing an exceptional reputation for quality products, strong values, consistent reliability, and excellent employees.
Quincy Compressor actively supports not only the North Baldwin Chamber of Commerce but the North Baldwin Communities and their customers who live, work and play here. This company is a leader in Bay Minette, as well as throughout Baldwin County. They support numerous local events, such as the Chilly Run & Chili Cook Off, as well as many school teams and city recreational functions, including Bay Minette Youth Baseball. Several of their employees volunteer and serve as coaches and mentors in the community. They regularly donate items for auctions benefiting the North Baldwin Infirmary Gala, Roar for More, and local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation. They have also made donations of equipment to the North Baldwin Center for technology. They host an annual school supply and food drive to donate to the local elementary school and Prodisee Pantry, as well as a Toys for Tots drive during the holiday season. The company also actively supports veterans by participating in the Veteran's Day festivities, sending Halloween candy to deployed veterans each year and honoring their employees who are veterans with a breakfast and lunch on the holiday.
In 2019, Quincy reopened their doors to their newly renovated offices, and after an extensive remodel that displaced employees to a temporary location, they still organized a community Family Day, where the entire community was invited to participate in games and activities, enjoy food, and get a tour of the offices and their factory.
They have donated compressors to our local fire department here in Bay Minette and to volunteer fire departments throughout North Baldwin. Last year, following the power outages from Hurricane Sally, they donated tarps and had employees who organized a hot meal service for citizens in need.
Quincy is a Platinum North Baldwin Advantage Partner of the North Baldwin Chamber, an annual sponsor of multiple events, not only sponsoring but encouraging their employees to engage in those events.
