Jose Guerrero’s passion since youth has been cars. He learned at a young age how to repair cars and later in life he specialized in radiators. With more than 20 years of experience Jose decided to take the next step and start his own business. Starting a new business was not something unfamiliar for Jose and his wife Claudia. They owned a tortilleria years back obtaining some of the knowledge and responsibilities of being self-employed.

Starting a radiator shop was no easy task; therefore, they contacted the Small Business Development Center to obtain assistance from construction permits to the management skills necessary to run the business. Adviser Havins had the opportunity to work with clients in all details of the business. Jose and Claudia express the assistance from the adviser and the SBDC as, “I would recommend anyone starting a business to first go to the SBDC, where they know all the steps and how to walk you through exactly what needs to be done. We were excited that Adriana was our mentor, because she is bilingual. She has helped us in too many ways to mention, and we consider her a part of the Angelo Radiator Service family. When starting from the ground floor, like we did, it was absolutely great that she could lead us in the right direction, and best of all to find out that it would not cost us! Adriana is very professional, but also so very personable.
Thank you SBDC, and thank you Adriana. You have been there for us every time I have ever had questions or problems. We appreciate all you have done for Angelo Radiator Service.”

Angelo Radiator opened its doors to their clients in March 2014 offering radiator repair, replacement, installation, rebuilds, as well as repairs of water pumps, water hoses, thermostats, heater cores and gas tanks. Their services are geared to the automotive, oilfield, industrial, or agricultural radiators ranging from basic maintenance to heavy repair.

Adviser Havins continues working with Angelo Radiator Service in a regular basis, assisting them with questions on marketing, management, financing, bookkeeping and more.
