Our People - Your Advantage


When you decide to have us repair or service your transmission or gearbox we take the responsibility seriously. We know that the cost can be significant and that your vehicle is important to you. At The Gearbox Factory one of our dedicated sales consultants will be assigned to look after your vehicle from start to finish. They will ensure that work progresses without unnecessary delays and costs. They know it can be a stressful time and will do their utmost to get your vehicle back to you as quickly as possible.

Due to the complexity and technical aspects of modern transmissions our technicians are trained internally and internationally. Because of our size we also have various specialists in house, with the resources and knowledge to do the job on any vehicle. It doesn’t matter if it is Japanese, European, American or English – we would have done it. Unfortunately our best work is not seen but you can be assured that it is there. We want to be around for the next 30 years as well!
