Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1938 by John Engalitcheff, Jr. an award-winning pioneer in cooling system technology who recognised the promising future of the emerging air-conditioning and refrigeration industries. BAC has become a worldwide manufacturer and marketer of evaporative heat transfer and ice thermal storage products that conserve resources and respect the environment.

The global corporate headquarters is located in Howard County, Maryland, near Baltimore. This facility houses the largest, most advanced R & D laboratory complex of its kind, where innovations in evaporative cooling and heat transfer technology have originated in the past, are being developed today, and lead the industry into the future.

Baltimore Aircoil expanded their international operation into Australia, initially setting up their base of operations in Milperra NSW. BAC Australia has since expanded and relocated to its current manufacturing facility and Australian head office in Somersby, on the NSW Central Coast. Along with this growth nationally BAC Australia now have Balticare offices established in the majority of Australia’s cities with accredited representatives operating out of the other states.

Over the years, BAC Australia have been responsible for the development of “Australian centric” evaporative equipment such as the PCT Open Cooling Tower. Wide spread success of these products nationally has since seen them incorporated into other regional offices for offer to their markets.
