The Strength of a family Business 

SKL Aluminum, located in the aluminum valley in Saguenay, is a family business founded in 2003 by M. Ghislain Larouche. A visionary in the field, Larouche wanted to offer radiator shop customers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) the possibility of obtaining heavy-duty cooling units at highly competitive costs within very short deadlines. The choice of aluminum as a raw material came about naturally because of its thermal properties and the fact that it is 100% recyclable.

Kathleen Larouche has continued the development of SKL with the same concerns as her father: offering quality and timeliness in a work environment conducive to the fulfillment of all her employees and business partners.

Innovation for better Performance 

SKL Aluminum innovates at all stages of its production, from manufacturing processes to final assembly, in order to offer customers tailor-made products to optimize equipment performance.

Leading Edge 

Since the opening of the company, we have chosen to serve two markets: replacement parts and original parts. It is therefore our obligation to be on the lookout for the slightest change in the industry, whether technological, legal, or normative, so that it can be immediately integrated into our practices.

A High-Performance Production Model 

Our radiators, air coolers, oil coolers, condensers and fuel coolers are mainly intended for heavy equipment, mining, civil engineering, and forestry sectors as well as any industrial sector requiring high-performance cooling systems. What sets SKL apart is our ability to produce replacement cores of all sizes and to design cooling systems for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) whose needs are for small quantities. We act as a partner to OEMs from the prototype design stage to mass production as required.

Expertise and Technology 

By combining the expertise of our engineers with the latest technologies in heat exchange computing, we optimize the efficiency and durability of our cores and cooling systems.
