Dukane Radiator, Inc., and Dukane Sheet Metal Solutions, Inc., were started by Tom Stoner in the early 1980’s to service the Transit Bus and School Bus companies by remanufacturing some of the parts they needed. Originally, it was Duquesne Radiator, but after many failed checks due to the name being written incorrectly, the name was changed to Dukane Radiator. Originally located in Pittsburgh near Duquesne University, it now is located in the Bethel Industrial Park in Bethel Park, PA.
