CSF In 1947

CSF History: Four Generations of Cooling the World

A Retrospective by SPEEDHUNTERS

Four generations and 65 years of CSF history has been captured by Speedhunters. Check out the photos dating all the way back to the humble beginnings of a garage in 1947 to the global automotive powerhouse that CSF is today. With customers around the world, CSF now manufactures radiators, intercoolers, condensers, oil coolers and other cooling systems. Dive into our story.

The true start of it all came in 1947 in Bombay, India and this picture captures it perfectly. A bunch of dudes who could swing wrenches opened shop changing tires and doing basic repairs. Ravi runs the CSF Racing and High Performance division today, and that’s his great-grandfather on the left along with three of his brothers and the rest of the employees on the right. As part of their repairs these guys started fixing copper/brass radiators, and before long became the local experts. They were the go-to shop for radiator repairs, which naturally built on itself until they started manufacturing them.
