Former Infantryman Comes Home to Open 1-800 Radiator Outlet

David Sanderson Uses Experience in the Army and the Work Force to Open Self Owned Auto Parts Distribution Center

WILMINGTON, OH--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - Last week was David Sanderson's first full week as a 1-800 Radiator franchise owner. It was also the first week that 1-800 Radiator's services were available in Chilicothe and the surrounding areas in Ohio. David is using his history as an Army infantryman and experience in the insurance business to operate his franchise with a strong leadership style and great customer service.

1-800 Radiator's signature service is the delivery of competitively priced auto parts directly to the homes or auto shops of the persons that order them. Individual car owners who are in the process of replacing a radiator appreciate the company's knowledgeable phone representatives and excellent service. Auto shop owners and mechanics are impressed by individual franchise owners like Sanderson's dedication to building strong long term client relationships and the pricing benefits that come with having a wholesale account with 1-800 Radiator. David Sanderson has already begun building these relationships by visiting auto shops in the area and introducing himself and his business.

David Sanderson's take on customer service involves face-to-face meetings with customers and offering them great incentives. "I want to make sure to be giving my customers constant 'thank-yous,'" David says, "they are, after all, the people keeping me in business." David's warehouse will serve Chillicothe, Wilmington, Zanesville, Newark, Athens and the areas in between these cities. His dedication to service and strong customer relations combined with 1-800 Radiator's buying power and inventory means that customers in these cities can get the radiators & A/C condensers and other auto parts that they need at the competitive prices associated with a large national distributor, but with the personalized service and care that only comes from a local, family owned business.

David Sanderson's 1-800 Radiator outlet opened for business on Monday, June 16th 2008.
