When the automotive industry top-end talks about rugged transmissions engineered and manufactured to the most exacting specifications one name is always mentioned – Australian manufacturer and exporter Albins Performance Transmissions.

For almost 15 years now Albins has redefined international gearbox engineering standards particularly with off road racing, sand sports, touring and V8 supercar motoring.

Today more than 40% of production is exported and Albins Performance Transmissions are used in the United States, Canada, Europe, Britain and South Africa.

Albins performance engineering has been so successful that in every major off-road or supercar event anywhere in the world – including the Dakar Rally and the Baja 1000 – you will find Albins Performance Transmissions delivering that renowned Albins quality, reliability, superior functionality and winning edge.

Albins Performance Transmissions are sold on a global scale to major motorsports events.

Within the last few years Albins has developed a more diversified business model introducing their high technology design and manufacturing capabilities into military and defence related applications, where the most rugged off-road performance and reliability are paramount. Defence related manufacturing will soon equate to 50% of total sales.

Similarly, Albins also offers bespoke design and manufacturing services whether as part of a transmission modification or redesign or to meet a specific customer engineering request.

Albins commitment to research and development is second to none.

Almost 7,000 hours were spent in R&D engineering over the last 12 months alone.

Designing and manufacturing some of the most advanced transmission products in the world also requires a series of capital intensive investments in the worlds most advanced precision engineering tools.

Yet again Albins confirms their credentials in advanced manufacturing capacity by purchasing equipment such as advanced gear profile grinding equipment and CMM technologies.

Today, Albins Performance Transmissions employs more than 50 Australians in high technology roles and business has never been better.

Director Steve MacDonald says: “Albins has embraced diversification in the past 9 years. This combined with a philosophical approach to continuous improvement and honing our skillset has enabled us to break new markets and deliver a better business mix to Albins.

“This in turn delivers a more robust company that means we can get on with growing the company and fine tuning its operation.”

If the Albins success story tells us anything it tells us that anything is possible. As Albins began less than 20 years ago re-designing dune buggy gearboxes and now sits astride a global market place with an enviable reputation for quality and excellence.
