Our Origins

From the inception of DRC Heat Transfer (formerly Diesel Radiator Company) in 1970, we have provided our customers with high-quality products, superior engineering, and excellent customer service. DRC was founded by Humberto “Bert” Suarez, with an initial focus of remanufacturing radiators for the railway and heavy equipment industries. With his experience working in the rail industry, he developed techniques to increase the robustness over current designs in the marketplace.

In 1987, he expanded DRC to manufacturing radiator cores for a wide range of applications. Next, capabilities for manufacturing complete cooling packages were added, which rolled out in 1989. Aluminum CAC manufacturing began in 1997, and tubing and installation kit manufacturing came in 2009. In the past year, DRC has doubled their tube manufacturing capability.

Another development has been HTW™ proprietary web based sizing software. With all new wind tunnel testing completed in 2013, this new tool offers more precise calculations than ever, and a new user friendly interface. Plus, this technology can be shared with customers, so they can see firsthand how changes to the design or environment will affect the cooling performance.

DRC Today

New tools like this make our performance guarantee possible. Our performance guarantee is simple: The prototype radiator will cool, or we will make it right. If performance is less than expected, then we can analyze the test data, normalize our computer model to the test data, and determine what adjustments are needed. We will work with you to make those adjustments quickly, as we stand behind our products.

Our facilities include over 120,000 sqft of manufacturing space, with more than 160 employees dedicated to providing the best cooling packages possible.
