About PDQ, Inc.

PDQ has been an operator-driven company since its inception. William "Red" Lewis, founder of PDQ, began in the vehicle wash industry as an operator in 1967. Never satisfied with the wash equipment of the times, he constantly experimented and built his own versions of wash components.

In 1984, Red teamed with touch-free pioneer Forrest Burton and produced the legendary Burton Follower® Arch. It was the first robotic arch to closely follow the contours and shape of any vehicle. Also during this time, Allen Jones of Pacific Car Wash Company in New Zealand had created a touch-free in-bay automatic car wash called LaserWash®. He later would move his business to Chicago, IL, where he would meet Red at a trade show.

By 1985, Red had developed a complete line of touch-free car wash equipment under the name of Carefree™ Vehicle Wash Equipment. Shortly thereafter, Red expanded his manufacturing business and changed its company name to PDQ, reflecting the company's highest standards in Performance, Dependability, and Quality.

In 1989, PDQ merged with Pacific Car Wash Company and began production of the LaserWash 4000. This vehicle wash system would become the standard for touch-free in-bay car washing and prove to be a workhorse in the industry until its retirement from production in 2007.
