About Our Owner
Fresh out of the United States Navy, Richard F. Emig started working with oil coolers in 1955. The company he worked for was Aero Technical Services, and he moved up quickly, becoming shop foreman almost immediately. In 1960, he obtained his inspector's license from the Federal Aviation Administration. By this time, Mr. Emig was responsible for the day-to-day operation of the repair station. When the owner of Aero Technical Services, Frank Milbee, retired in 1969, Mr. Emig purchased the tools and inventory of the business. It then became known as R & E Oil Cooler Service. Started in Paramount, California, Mr. Emig moved his operations to Arizona in 1984, where they are located today. Mr. Emig utilizes his 48 years of experience by running a full service repair station for most oil coolers, heat exchangers, and thermostats being used today. These include fixed wing and rotor aircraft, powered by piston or turbine engines. For all of these years, he has been qualified to perform overhauls to serviceable status, including decontamination.
