At some point, if you are in the cooling system service and parts supply, you will be affected by poor coolant quality. Your customer and their level of coolant education will determine if you are faced with warranty issues arising from poor quality coolant. It is evident that some areas and demographics are more susceptible to cheaper inferior coolants, but this problem is widespread and affects your business, your customer, radiator suppliers, and manufacturers.
Over the last year, our company started breaking down our safety practices--some of which we were on top of, and others that had fallen behind the curve and desperately needed to be revisited.

The association has wrapped up a busy Spring with the International Tour in March and the conclusion of the 2023 Spring Conference in Rochester, New York, a few weeks ago. A huge thanks to the Schelkun family for their hard work and hospitality on the first day of the conference which was hosted at their facility, Empire Radiator. Arranging an event of any kind requires a lot of preparation and these preparations wouldn’t be possible without the dedication and expertise of NARSA/IDEA’s host company, staff and board.
Longtime NARSA member Pat O’Connor was inducted into the Cooling Systems Hall of Fame during the 2023 Spring Conference in Rochester, New York on Friday, April 28. The Hall of Fame is considered the highest distinction within NARSA/IDEA.

In this episode of "Solder & Soot," we sit down with Mark Arbeau of Hunter Radiators based out of Edmonton, Alberta in Canada. As Mark explains, his family wasn't involved in the radiator business, but he came into the industry thanks to a unique opportunity. We also learn what challenges Canadian radiator shops deal with and what it means to "take things to a level 11."
Dozens of NARSA/IDEA members descended on Rochester, New York for the 2023 Spring Conference. The two-day event was hosted by longtime NARSA/IDEA member Empire Radiator, owned and operated by the Schelkun family.
