About Our Company
We have one of the industry's most advanced radiator shops and service facilities. We are a distribution business for both cooling system and A/C parts. Our overall building is 28,000 sq. ft including having a 7,200 sq. ft. service shop that has five lifts and six other bays to handle the growing volume of cooling system and A/C repair wrok that comes primarily for the 311,000 people in Fort Wayne and the surrounding Allen County area. More than a football field in length, the Ace Radiator complex houses a service shop on the left, customer service area, radiator shop, and offices in the middle, and the distribution business on the right. The new shop has enabled Ace Radiator to accept business that was previously turned away because of limited capacity.
Jesse Wood started the business back in 1946. His son Kenny signed on full-time in 1952. John, Kenny's son, started helping out around the shop at the age of 12. When Kenny was hurt in 1973 and his grandfather Jesse was sick, John joined the business full-time. In the process, he had to forego a mechanical engineering scholarship. He's never looked back. John's grandfather passed away in 1988, and his father officially retired from Ace Radiator in 1991, However, Kenny still comes to work on most days. John and Penny Wood now run Ace Radiator with the same great attitude towards business.
