Introduction

Detroit Radiator Corp. (DRC) began in 1936 when the firm was founded by Walter Kaminski to make automotive and truck cores. That was an era dominated by strong, regional suppliers who sold exclusively to radiator repair shops.A time in which complete replacement radiators were rare; if they existed at all; and when the copper-brass re-core was king.

When Walter Kaminski died, the firm was eventually bought by a management partnership led by Robert Duquet.  Bob Duquet eventually bought out all of the partners by 1978 and built the firm into a multi-faceted cooling system enterprise that did business in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

However, the future did not bode well for DRC and by 2001 all that remained was a name and manufacturing equipment owned by Hot and Cool Holdings.  Randy Pruitt, President and CEO of Randall Industries Inc., purchased the company from Hot and Cool and began to pave the wave to a new frontier for Detroit Radiator Corp.

In 1991 he formed Randall Industries which manufactured cores and complete all-metal radiators for the heavy truck market. Having success in the local market he decided to start marketing nationally.

Today Detroit Radiator is a well diversified manufacturing and distribution company in the heat transfer/climate control industry, providing services which range from manufacturing radiator cores for material handling, bus, tractor, earth moving equipment and stationary units, to complete all-metal radiators for class 6, 7, and 8 trucks, charge air coolers and oil coolers.  It has deep roots in the radiator industry and is celebrating over 75 years of success.
