About T. Rad
T.RAD North America was established in 1988 as "CoPAR, Inc.", as a joint venture, or Co-PARtnership, between Toyo Radiator Co., LTD of Japan and another North American manufacturer. The primary goal of this joint venture was to support the growing agricultural and construction equipment markets in the United States. Hopkinsville, KY was selected as the home of our facility due to its centralized location.
Our initial product line consisted of various sizes and configurations of copper/brass radiators. In 1991 Toyo gained complete ownership of CoPAR. The CoPAR name was kept until 2005, when every member of the worldwide Toyo group was renamed "T.RAD" to present a truly "global" presence.
Over the years, the company has experienced continuous growth; necessitating several plant expansions and acquisitions of new equipment. Our copper/brass facility, which started at 61,000 square feet has now expanded to nearly 100,000 square feet. Most recently, this facility was upgraded with the addition of a vacuum brazing furnace, allowing us to produce stainless steel heat exchangers. In March of 2000, we celebrated the grand opening of our aluminum products manufacturing facility; a 100,000 square-foot operation, located approximately 3 miles from the copper/brass facility in Hopkinsville, KY. It was established to produce aluminum radiators and oil coolers for automobiles, motorcycles, ATV''s, and off-highway equipment. In the years since, our aluminum facility has experienced an exponential amount of growth. T.RAD North America is now the leading supplier of aluminum radiators and oil coolers to the motorcycle and ATV markets. In 2005, this facility was expanded to nearly double its original capacity to facilitate this growth.
