History

Pankey’s has been operating at the same location, with the same commitment to quality, ever since Jack Pankey Sr. founded the company in 1945. We are honored to be celebrating our fifty-eighth year in providing the Bay Area and all of Northern California with the same care and respect with which the company was founded.

Pankey’s was founded way back in 1945, when Jack Pankey Sr. opened a small service shop with an adjoining office in Hayward, California. Holding true to our roots from our modest beginnings, Pankey’s has become a leader in radiator repair and maintains a tradition of expertise and commitment to customer care. As a mainstay in the Hayward community, Pankey’s continues to provide jobs and security to the thriving East Bay area.

As the times have changed, so too have Pankey’s innovations. But we have never lost sight of the key principles that Jack Pankey Sr. held dear and true: integrity, honesty, value, and commitment to customer service. Today, fifty-eight years later, we’re still making Jack proud.
