Fraser Valley Radiators has been family owned and operated since 1972 when Otto and son Paul Welfing bought a small one bay shop in Langley. After Otto was injured in the construction industry, he needed to find a new career and the opportunity to purchase a rad shop was a great fit. This proved to be a prudent investment as the business blossomed into a vital part of the community.
Within a few years, Otto and Paul quickly realized they needed more space. The one bay shop they started at quickly became too small. So, in 1981, they moved to their current location on Industrial Avenue. This allowed them to expand into a 4 bay shop where they are fully equipped to service all the needs of their customers.
As a shop focused on cooling systems it was a natural fit for them to also work on repairing air conditioning systems starting in 1981. During this time, they also expanded their services to include mobile A/C repairs on heavy equipment.
Over the years, as cooling systems and air conditioning systems have evolved over the years, regular training and constantly upgrading to the latest equipment has given Fraser Valley Radiators the ability to service even the newest systems.
However, the business location and services are not the only thing aspect that has evolved, so has the team. Frank joined the business in 1979 and became a full partner in 1983. Frank, Paul, and Otto ran the shop together until 1989 When Otto retired. Also, throughout its history, most of Otto’s 11 children spent some time working in the shop which has kept the family feeling alive and well.
Another key addition for Fraser Valley Radiators happened in 2001 when Brian Degelder joined the team as an apprentice. He worked his way up through the organization and in 2011 he joined Paul and Frank as a partner in the business. They ran the business together until Paul retired in 2018. Fraser Valley Radiators is now run by Frank and Brian and 4 employees.
