Silverton Services originated as the aftermarket division of Silverton Engineering, a manufacturer of copper/ brass radiators which was established in 1949 in Silverton, Pretoria.

During the mid 1960’s the Company opened a number of radiator workshops to service the repair trade. These grew to 46 branches countrywide. By 1970 the aftermarket operation had grown into a substantial business and a separate company with its own management was established under the name Silverton Services. In 1980 the company commenced converting its branches into individually owned Franchises under the Silverton Radiator banner.

In 1999 BEHR GmbH (Stuttgart, Germany) bought Silverton Engineering and Silverton Services along with two other companies (formerly FHE Technologies & Connoisseur Air Conditioning), changing all of these into Behr facilities as part of their world-wide network. As part of a world-wide joint venture with HELLA KGaA Hueck & Co. (Lippstad, Germany) the company became Behr Hella Service South Africa in 2007.

Behr Engine Cooling’s Pretoria factory includes a special aftermarket facility, set up to produce short-run, non-current products on a rapid response basis to meet the aftermarket need for nation-wide replacement parts.

Distribution takes place through 6 warehouses located in the major centres which service a network of 124 Silverton radiators franchised repair shops throughout South Africa and its neighbours. Behr Hella Service also distributes a range of aftermarket automotive air conditioning components including refrigerants and lubricants.

Parent companies BEHR and HELLA were both founded around 1900. They are among the world’s acknowledged leaders in the fields of automotive engine cooling and air conditioning with operations throughout Europe, North and South America, Southern Africa and the East.

As part of this organisation Silverton Radiators is in a unique position to service the local aftermarket with the widest range of radiators, cores, condensers and components which fully comply with international Original Equipment standards set by vehicle manufacturers.
