Huge Radiators

Who We Are

Richard and Susan Rickermann acquired Affton Radiator Services in June of 1977. Their son, Bill Rickermann, came to work for them after graduating from Lindbergh High School in 1977. Bill attended GM’s Apprenticeship training school the prior summer of 1976.

After owning the business for 12 great years, Richard passed away. Bill took over the ownership in partnership with his mother, Susan in 1989. The business has grown from a single bay shop to its present location that has five bays.

In 2005 Affton Radiator Services added industrial, heavy duty trucks, equipment, mining and marine to its radiator repairs.
