The Quigley story evolved from a mindset geared to trucks, new inventions and a sense of adventure. When you mix these ideas together, you get exciting new creations.
Since the mid 1960’s, Quigley has been refining its craft. First selling trucks and vans, then customizing them and beginning in 1974, building a new type of vehicle – the Quigley 4×4.
A third generation family owned manufacturing and design company, Quigley has been consistently recognized for their 4 wheel drive system’s design excellence and quality production. Located in Manchester, PA, Quigley is the oldest, largest and most successful manufacturer of high quality 4 wheel drive conversions for full sized vans and “cut-aways” in the world.
The company’s success is a result of its focus on the customer’s need for a go-anywhere, large load capacity, full-size van. Whether you have a large fleet, a small business, a government or emergency service, transportation and tourism, or an individual, Quigley 4×4 provides the ability to Conquer Your World.
The advantages include recognition and approval by GM, Ford and Nissan, as well as drop ship & ship-thru, warranties, and the ease of service at dealerships nationwide.
The Quigley 4×4 has the load capacity, off-road qualities, and performance that puts it in a class of its own.
Capitalizing on reputation and high quality manufacturing, Quigley branched out its products to include design, manufacturing, and service for custom driveshafts.
The experience of building driveshafts for 4×4 production allows Quigley the advantage to produce quick turnaround Driveshafts for Jeeps, Light & Medium Duty Trucks, Racing and Custom Car markets.
The Quigley guiding principles are:
Quigley is committed to corporate citizenship and having a lasting positive impact in the communities in which we work and live. This commitment begins at the top of our organization and extends down through our employees. We believe in supporting local businesses and show this through our selection of vendors and our contributions. Our endeavor is to support the activities for which our employees and their families are involved in. We applaud the efforts and generosity of our people who contribute their talents, creativity, time at work and outside to help build a better world for tomorrow. Quigley makes a concerted effort to support the local schools, volunteer organization, and charities.
We are proud to support many causes within our local community, as well as national efforts. Within the last year we donated to Operation Help A Neighbor, Stamp It Forward, and The Walkabout Foundation.
