T.RAD is a global manufacturer of heat exchangers for internal combustion engines, architectural HVAC units, battery cooling, and fuel-cell cooling. We built our first of two facilities in South Western Kentucky almost thirty years ago and helped to kick start Foreign Direct Investment in the region. Nine Japanese-owned firms now call Hopkinsville home.

Riken Elastomers Corporation formed a partnership with South Western KY Economic Development Council in 2006 when making the site selection for our new plant. Since that time, the SWK EDC has supported us through our first two expansions. The strong support from the EDC remains a key factor in our ability to continue to grow our business here in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.
