Wishing Jerry a Happy Retirement
Jerry originally came to work for Brice Thomas in 1987 and worked on radiators and just about every other project owners David & Lyverel Thomas had going on at the time. A few years later in 1992, he helped them open a location in Piedmont, AL. Jerry and his brother-in-laws, Eric and Phillip, eventually purchased the business from their father-in-law and began to build what is now known as C, G & J. Seeing a need for quality products in the industry, the three of them began to custom build radiators and eventually expanded into charge air coolers and oil coolers for everything from antique cars to heavy duty industrial equipment. Now, after 28 years in the business, Jerry has decided to retire to spend time with his wife and soon to arrive grandbaby.
It was a very emotional event when he announced his decision to retire at the annual company Christmas party. Jerry will be missed, and everyone at C, G & J/Brice Thomas Radiator wish him all the best in his retirement!

I finally got around to installing the radiator and took a test drive yesterday (temp. was 90° F outside). Car ran great. No problems! Great job on a tough radiator.
