30-Year Anniversary – A Legacy of Success

Our History

Dura-Lite Heat Transfer Products Ltd. has kept the trucking industry on the highway with our revolutionary charge air coolers since 1992, and we are excited to be celebrating 30-years in business in 2022!

It all began in the late 80s, in our humble repair shop in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, that saw an accumulation of leaking charge air coolers coming in almost daily. With the realization that a lasting repair would not be possible, because of thermal expansion and contraction, we knew that a new design was needed. After extensive research, development, and testing, Dura-Lite™ unveiled its revolutionary new charge air cooler, the New Generation™, to the world in 1992.

This new charge air cooler, quickly recognized as the Ultimate Solution™, eventually became known as Evolution®. It incorporated Silicone Grommets at the tube-to-header joint of the cooler and utilized oval tubing that had superior inner air deflection, which met or, in some cases, exceeded the original equipment specifications, while still having unmatched durability. This design, along with a streamlined in-house manufacturing process, an industry-leading warranty program, and a customer-first ethos is how Dura-Lite would make our mark as the new-standard in the trucking industry.

Dura-Lite is known for the world’s best charge air coolers (CAC), premium radiators and charge air cooler testing equipment for all turbo-diesel powered equipment used in heavy-duty truck, transit bus, motorcoach, motorhome, industrial, agricultural, and construction markets.

Our promise, from day one, has always been to supply industry-leading products and services. From your first call with the sales team to troubleshooting down the road, we stand behind our products so you can keep your promises too.

Dura-Lite has revolutionized the trucking industry with over 30-years of progress – an accomplishment that fortifies a resolve to improve and find new ways to build better products.
