Flexing your Cooling Muscles
Most people appreciate that out in the middle of WA you can expect it to get hot. Kalgoorlie can experience an extreme range of weather with recorded temperatures above 46°C in summer and below freezing in winter. If your engine and cabin temperature control systems are not working correctly, you could be in big trouble. Especially when the nearest capital city (Perth) is 600km away.
Flex Industries in Western Australia offers a comprehensive maintenance service for plant, equipment and vehicle fleets. They have just about everything you could want for trucks and trailers plus a full workshop that is even equipped to perform laser wheel aligning.
The Kalgoorlie business of Flex Industries opened in 2004 and has partnered with Natrad HDS Kalgoorlie to assist with specialist cooling requirements since day one. Flex is a supplier of Volvo, Mack & UD truck parts and they are very particular about quality. That’s where Dennis Smedley and his Natrad HDS Kalgoorlie team step into action and help with everything from simple clean-outs to complete radiator and charge air cooler replacement units.
“We need to have quality parts with no comebacks and we seek out suppliers that are helpful, honest and willing to go the extra mile” says Flex Industries Branch Manager, Mark Wilson. “Dennis and the team at Natrad HDS Kalgoorlie provide us with excellent products and outstanding service”.
Truck fleet customers need their repairs to be done quickly and reliably, which is one of Natrad HDS Kalgoorlie’s many strengths as a business. Getting back on the road quickly means that truck owners and freight companies can save an enormous amount of time and money.
There’s another very important reason why Flex insists on quality parts and workmanship. Some of the trucks they service will be carrying dangerous or hazardous goods from time to time. If something goes wrong with these vehicles it has the potential to create a very serious situation. So it’s a good thing that Natrad HDS Kalgoorlie is there helping to keep everything cool and correct.
When you need trusted advice and cooling parts that will withstand punishing conditions, contact the specialists at Natrad HDS. They have the range and expertise to provide the best cooling solution for your application.
