1-800 Radiator Expands to South Dallas

Local Businessman Kevin Tucker Brings Home Delivered Auto Parts to South Dallas

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 17, 2008) - Last week local businessman Kevin Tucker opened 1-800 Radiator of South Dallas. The family owned parts distribution hub is part of a growing network of franchise warehouses opening under the 1-800 Radiator umbrella. From Tucker's store, customers will receive same-day delivery of high quality automotive radiators and cooling components. The distribution center will serve repair shops, collision centers, automobile dealerships, retail auto parts stores and individual car owners in South Dallas, Desoto, Lancaster, Cedar Hill, Waxahachie, Ennis, Hillsboro, Duncanville, and Balch Springs. Retail "do-it-yourself" customers will be reached via Yellow Page ads, the Internet, and by calling 1-800 Radiator.

1-800 Radiator made their mark on the auto parts industry by delivering brand new radiators to the auto shops and do-it-yourselfers that replace them. They set themselves apart from similar services by delivering many of these radiators within several hours and guaranteeing each part for life. This innovative business model has enabled them to become the nation's largest independent direct distributor of cooling accessories, and 1-800 Radiator has grown from a three million dollar company to a company with over $117 million in revenue. By teaming up with entrepreneurs like Kevin Tucker, 1-800 Radiator has more than doubled its distribution centers and territories.

Kevin Tucker comes to 1-800 Radiator with a 20 year history in automotive sales and franchise ownership. He is already enjoying the visits he is making to auto shops in the region and is looking forward to meeting more local shop owners. "I want them to know that I sincerely care about their businesses," Tucker says. "After all, when they are successful, I am going to be more successful." This is a viewpoint that Kevin attributes to his background in sales saying, "Success in any industry is about taking care of your customers." Taking care of his customers is just what Kevin Tucker plans to do in Dallas. With the opening of his store on October 6, 2008, he brings these clients high quality parts and service at the most competitive prices in the industry.
