Behr Hella Service Introduces Alternative Radiator Line to Satisfy Economic Consideration
Peachtree City, GA – Behr Hella Service, a joint venture for thermal management between Behr (vehicle air conditioning and engine cooling) and HELLA (lighting technology and electronics) now features an alternative line of radiators in a lower price segment to meet practical economic considerations. The alternative line makes perfect economic sense when repairing older passenger cars and keeps the cost of repair in line with current values.
The new line is aimed at specific vehicles and is available as an alternative to the original spare parts that are being offered simultaneously. For easy identification and to distinguish them from original Behr Hella Service spare parts, the Alternative radiator line is provided with separate part numbers and clearly labeled as "Alternative."
With the new alternative line, Behr Hella Service, is giving repair shops the opportunity to promote their quality consciousness in harmony with the requirements of the market.
Application for the new line includes a wide selection of popular vehicles from Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and VW with model years ranging from 1998 to 2010.
Behr Hella Service products are made to OE specs for vehicle specific fit, form, and function. The line includes resistors, engine/transmission oil coolers, compressors, retrofit kits, vacuum elements, pressure switches, PAO-Oil 68, receiver dryers, expansion valves, condensers, condenser/radiator fans, HVAC blowers, evaporators, Visco®-fans, heater cores, radiators, expansion tanks, and Visco® clutches and more. The new catalog is available in a printed version as well as online. Additionally, all data is in ACES through Epicore and WHI.
