The business was initially commenced in 1982 by Maurice Taggart, working from home and trading as Maurice Taggart & Co.
Maurice had already acquired considerable knowledge and experience of the air conditioning business during his previous employments with several large air conditioning contractors, including: Everton Engineering Ltd., Newtownabbey, Co. Antrim, Joseph Nadin & Sons Ltd., Oldham, Lancashire, Andrews-Weatherfoil Ltd., Lambeg, Lisburn, Co. Antrim & J. Norman Fulton Ltd., Balmoral, Belfast.
In 1988, Maurice entered into a partnership with Eddie McAllister from Dublin, to establish TagAir for the primary purpose of promoting Trane air conditioning products.
In 19xx, Brian Taggart joined the company and assumed responsibility for all installation, maintenance and service work.
By 19xx, the business was expanding rapidly and it was decided to move into commercial premises at No. 46, Dunlop Industrial Units, Balloo Drive, Bangor.
The business continued to grow and prosper and in 20xx, it was necessary to move into much larger premises at No. 36, Dunlop Industrial Units.
To coincide with this move to larger premises, both Maurice and Eddie decided to retire, and the business was transferred into the control of Brian.
From the transfer the business has continued to grow year on year but has also managed to keep the family values instilled from Maurice’s guidance.
In 2010 Paul Coon joined the company as general manager to head up our contracting dept. With 25 years’ experience Paul was a valued addition to the company.
This year Aaron Lesley joined our sales & applications dept. Aaron has 15 years’ experience in this field having previously worked for another air conditioning company.
