Bayswater Road Radiators was established in the early 1980s at 369 Bayswater Road, Garbutt, which was then the industrial centre of Townsville.
The business relocated across the other side of the intersection of Bayswater Road and Duckworth Street to its new building approximately 17 years ago, where it remains trading today.
The business is a long-term member of MTAQ. And after industry lobbying was appointed the first radiator specialist in Queensland with approved repairs status for the RACQ.
Up to that point the radiator repair sector was not provided with any official RACQ status in the automotive trade.
The business focuses solely on cooling systems with a special emphasis on trucks and industrial applications.
Manager Aaron Thompson has a special interest in the development of special applications not available to the general market. This has led to the expansion of special products available to customers today.
Bayswater Road Radiators understands that trucking down time is costly, and as a result it provides quick turnaround services, repairs and full rebuilds to all types of trucking and heavy haulage applications.
The company carries an ever-expanding range of complete heavy-duty truck radiators in stock and ready for immediate dispatch for popular models such as Kenworth, Western Star, Mack, etc, and specialises in the design and engineering of heavy duty cooling packs, increasing longevity and minimising downtime.
All its exchange radiator assemblies have been assembled using experienced radiator specialists, using quality materials. All units are stripped down, with tanks, brackets and supports cleaned and inspected before reassembling using new Australian manufactured heavy-duty cores, including new quality gaskets and replacement hardware.
Each unit is thoroughly pressure tested before being painted ready for delivery. Each exchange unit also sits in its own fabricated steel transport frame ready for despatch.
With over three decades of experience, Bayswater Radiators has been servicing and repairing road trains and off highway units, offering advice and recommending solutions.
“We also provide an extensive range of new truck intercoolers, including repairs and modifications,” added a spokesperson.
“An important part of our work is the special design and engineering of heavy duty cooling packs to increase performance and longevity, not only for highway big rigs but specialist applications for mining and earthmoving too.
“We provide custom engineered core design options, including heavy duty brass fins, with various open tube pitch offerings, including the fabrication of radiator cores, offering superior impact protection. Upgraded heavy duty applications can be offered in steel, copper and brass, or aluminium.
“For owners of a 4WD vehicle that doesn’t quite cut it with Australia’s harsh conditions we can offer advice to overcome issues with overheating. Our workshop offers cleaning, servicing, repairs and heavy-duty upgrades.”
