About NRF

NRF is specialized in two business sectors: production & trade.

We refer to the production branch as our thermal engineering division. At NRF, we are specialists in translating customers’ cooling needs into tailor-made cooling products. Our international engineering team is committed to developing professional, finely tuned solutions and understands how to deliver expected outcomes.

Our trade branch focuses exclusively on the automotive aftermarket sector, commonly referred to in-house as AM. NRF offers excellent quality replacement parts to extend the useful life of vehicles. The AM unit is formed by a highly dedicated team of professionals working in areas like supply chain, product management, technical support, and marketing, among others.

The history of NRF

Nederlandse Radiateuren Fabriek (NRF), translated as Dutch Radiator Factory, was founded in 1927 in Amsterdam and was originally conceived as a radiator repair factory. Some years later, in 1930, NRF started its own production department. In 1954, a second production site in Mill, the Netherlands, was opened and became the headquarters in 1962 when the Amsterdam location closed. In 1980, NRF started becoming an international player and opened its first location abroad in Valenciennes, France. In the ensuing years, NRF opened new locations across Europe, including Spain, Poland, and Italy, and started the production of aluminum heat exchangers.
