Upstate Parts & Supply, Inc. (UPSTATE) was established in 1986 as an air conditioning equipment & parts wholesaler, with its principal sales focus being within Central New York State. As the business matured in the early 1990's, UPSTATE elected to build on the experience of its ownership and therefore looked outside of the United States for additional growth. North and Central Africa provided almost immediate sales and from this juncture UPSTATE looked more and more to countries overseas for the sale of its offerings. At the same time, UPSTATE continued to realize steady growth in Central New York and in other parts of the United States.
To focus on both domestic and overseas growth opportunities, in 1993, Upstate Parts & Supply established NuClimate International Limited (NIL) as a subsidiary of UPSTATE. NIL was given the sole responsibility for all sales outside of the United States. NIL concentrated on exporting of air conditioning, heating, ventilating and refrigeration equipment and parts with a primary operating focus on third world hvac markets. UPSTATE, although being the parent of NIL, continued to service domestic USA HVAC markets with air conditioning, heating, ventilating and refrigeration equipment and parts.
In 2003, Upstate Parts & Supply established NuClimate Air Quality Systems Inc. as a subsidiary of UPSTATE to serve the indoor air quality market. NuClimate Air Quality Systems (NAQS) manufactures and sells the patented "Q" Terminal and also sells "The Pool System" through a network of independent representatives in the United States. Upstate Parts & Supply and NuClimate International Ltd. are jointly owned and managed by Edward M. Campagna and John L. DiMillo.
Together they have more than eighty years of HVAC market experience while working and living both domestically and internationally. James Miller, together with Edward and John, are owner/managers of NuClimate Air Quality Systems. UPSTATE companies presently serve industrial accounts within the United States and International and OEM accounts in Latin America, Africa, Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia. Major industrial customers include Carrier, New Venture Gear (Chrysler), Anheuser Busch, York International, Johnson Controls and Whirlpool. UPSTATE companies also provide outsourcing services for select offshore entities that want to procure American made HVAC componentry.
