Innovative Material Combinations Create Bespoke Automotive Cooling Systems

At NAR, we like to stand out from the crowd, we create bespoke automotive cooling systems using innovative material combinations.

We have the unique ability to adapt any number of differing combinations of the specialist materials it handles to achieve the desired results, offering greater efficiency and weight savings. These modules may be air or liquid cooled and can also use phase-change technology. We have developed our own software programs to evaluate and predict the performance of our heatsinks and cooling modules.
We can also incorporate Pyrolytic Graphite sheets into our cooling modules which gives the scope to greatly improve heat dissipation where local ‘hot spots’ may be present. This makes removal of heat from the whole module much more efficient.

For more information on our innovative methods we use and to see how our ideas are being constantly adapted and altered by our passion and the ideas our customers bring to the table, then contact us with your own ideas and queries.

If you would like to learn more about NAR Group and the products and services we offer as well as the history of our company, then have a browse of our site. You will find information on our manufacture and design solutions as well as classic car part products and more…

NAR celebrates 50 years in business

NAR Group, the specialist radiator and automotive cooling solutions specialist, celebrated its 50th anniversary on 22 April 2017.

Over 100 customers, suppliers and classic car enthusiasts were welcomed to its ever expanding Northampton factory by current MD, Rob Goodwin and his father, the firm’s founder, Don Goodwin who is still active in the business today.

It was the £500 profit from the sale of Don’s first house that provided the equity to start NAR in 1967. A converted wardrobe served as the office/finance department, occupied by Don’s wife and those humble beginnings formed the solid foundations out of which the current, vibrant business was created.

NAR still has a dedicated department covering all aspects of the classic and historic markets. This includes careful repair, restoration or new build, using the traditional methods that were employed at the time of original manufacture.

A collection of Jaguar classics were on display for guests to enjoy.

Today, however, NAR is a very different entity from its formative years supporting classic cars and historic performance models. For a number of years now NAR has performed business critical support to the defence sector, working closely with the UK MOD and prime contractors such as BAE Land systems. The company designed a complete cooling upgrade for the CVRT range of fighting vehicles. Since then it has designed, manufactured and supplied cooling products across a variety of military platforms.

Throughout the day Rob Goodwin was proudly showing off the collection of CVRT’s that included a white Norwegian army vehicle and the Alvis that formed part of NAR’s first ever military contract in 2005.

NAR continues to develop its offering. The acquisition of NRF UK’s manufacturing arm in January 2016 has enabled it to manufacture copper brass radiator cores alongside its existing aluminium cores operation, which already produces in excess of 10,000 cores each year.

A new 3,500 sq ft re-manufacturing site will open shortly on the same site as NAR’s present factory.

Contact us today for further information about cooling upgrades to CVRTs, Copper Brass Radiator Cores and any of our others high performance automotive radiator cooling solutions.
