After many years as a motor mechanic since immigrating to Australia in the 1960's Nestor, with his son Con, started C & N Radiators in 1994 as a radiator repair business. As the radiator industry moved away from copper/brass radiators to modern disposable plastic aluminium units, the art of repairing and reconditioning radiators was a dying trade. It was agreed that to continue moving forward the business was going to have to begin offering general mechanical services as well as cooling system specialist services, C & N Radiators and Mechanical was born.
In 2011 Nestor chose to retire, leaving Con to take over. Con has taken the business forward undertaking advanced systems diagnostic and repair training, and equipping the workshop with state of the art electronic diagnostic equipment, bringing C & N Radiators and Mechanical into the 21st century.
The workshop is a well-equipped general automotive repairer with the latest in EFI computer diagnostics and air-conditioning station, just to name a few. In the modern motor vehicle repair, correct diagnosis is the most important aspect. This workshop has the equipment and the expertise necessary to ensure your vehicle is fixed correctly the first time.
Looking ahead, plans include new equipment and training allowing us to service and repair the ever growing range of hybrid and electric vehicles. And to expand into a second, larger branch.
Business owner and sole technician, Con completed his apprenticeship in 1994 as a motor mechanic and air conditioning specialist, and has since returned for retraining throughout his career, the latest of which saw him receive a Certificate IV in Automotive Technology. Con holds trade certificates in Automotive Light Vehicles, Automotive Air Conditioning, Radiator Repairer, Certificate IV In Automotive Technology and is also an Authorised RMS (formerly RTA) Light Vehicle Examiner.
Con is passionate about his job and has built a reputation of high quality workmanship. Con is extremely honest and reliable.
Con is a family man with a wife and two young daughters who he loves spending time with. He is also a passionate amateur photographer and holds a private pilots licence.
