History of Innovation Drives TSM Champ Marine

In the marine industry, everyone knows the requirements on engines run high. Typical usage is demanding and keeping engines cool is a must every single day. This is exactly why OE’s in the marine engine industry look to TSM Champ. When it comes to reliability and durability, there’s no better choice than heat exchange cooling products from TSM Champ.

But, it’s not just our legendary product reliability and durability that makes TSM Champ the #1 choice for marine OE’s — it’s also our history of innovation. 

For nearly 50 years, our team has been driving the innovation of cooling products for all aspects of recreational boats, offshore vessels and barges. Our product line for marine applications include engine oil coolers, water coolers, fuel coolers, hydraulic oil coolers, heat exchangers, plate coolers, power steering oil coolers and transmission oil coolers. 

TSM Champ traces its marine roots back to R&D Enterprises, which was founded in 1974. Since that time, our team has been recognized worldwide as the industry leader in innovative heat exchangers, oil coolers, fuel and steering oil coolers in the marine engine industry. Known for high product quality, reliability and innovation throughout the industry, R&D Enterprises became part of Thermal Solutions Manufacturing in 2012.

In 2020, Thermal Solutions Manufacturing acquired Champ Marine from Alfa Laval which resulted in a further expansion of product offerings. This includes our core shell & tube radiators, rubber tube sheet technology, adhesive line of products, stainless steel coolers and a large number of various housings.
