Rocky Mount native Godfrey Giddeons, who was the area’s primary radiator repairman, founded Rocky Mount Radiator in 1927. He worked from a 2 bay, corner station in downtown Rocky Mount. Most of his income came from automotive radiator repair and service to the local community.

After Giddeons’ passing in 1962, son-in-law Charles L. Braswell, Sr. took over the business, and in 1968 built and moved across the street to a modern, 3 bay shop with room to accommodate 8 cars for service.

Charles L. Braswell groomed the business to include truck and industrial repair, and also became the leading mobile air conditioning repair center in the area. Rocky Mount Radiator became incorporated, and later became a distributor for radiators and cooling system parts for Eastern North Carolina.

In May 1993, Braswell moved from the cramped downtown building to a brand new, state of the art facility on Highway 301 Bypass in Rocky Mount, NC. This 18,000 square foot facility is where Rocky Mount Radiator and Air Conditioning operates today. One of the finest cooling system centers in the country, this shop contains 18 service bays, a waiting room, warehouse, an order desk area, as well as a spacious radiator shop.

Today, Rocky Mount Radiator and Air Conditioning, Inc. is operated by June Braswell and Charles (Chuck) Braswell, Jr. Family owned and operated since 1927, Rocky Mount Radiator features factory trained technicians, a NARSA Certified Heavy Duty radiator and heat exchanger facility, and also this area’s most extensive stock of cooling system parts to be found.
