Why Professional Transmission Rebuilders Trust TransTec®
Professional transmission rebuilders trust the TransTec® brand and install our kits more than all other kits combined.
TransTec® automatic transmission seal kits continue to be produced with the same high quality and dependability as when the brand debuted in the automotive aftermarket in 1978. As a brand of Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, the world’s largest producer of sealing products, TransTec® is the only aftermarket overhaul kit brand that is both an original equipment manufacturer and holds ISO-9000 certification. Read on to see the many reasons why more transmission professionals install TransTec® kits than all other brands combined.
Rebuild It with the Parts That Built It
As a brand of Freudenberg-NOK, the world’s largest producer of OE sealing products, TransTec kits feature more of the same transmission components that are supplied to Original Equipment Manufacturers globally than any other aftermarket brand. Driven by our Brand Promise — OE First — we rely on a proven three-pronged approach to provide installers with the highest quality kit contents available:
Our first objective is to provide the original equipment components when we can make them available to the aftermarket.
When the original components are not available we develop and manufacture a comparable OE product within the Freudenberg and NOK families, utilizing over 50 OE manufacturing facilities globally.
Our remaining kit content is developed with a global network of manufacturers, outside of the Freudenberg-NOK network, that have been rigorously evaluated to pass Freudenberg-NOK’s OE supplier standards for manufacturing competency and quality.
TransTec rebuild kits contain, on average, 60% OE content from Freudenberg and its family of companies whereas competitor kits contain only 5-10% OE contents (on average). Our approach to providing the industry with the highest level of OE and quality manufactured product is supported by Freudenberg-NOK’s proven quality systems, engineering methods and component validation testing.
Your Customers Expect a Complete Rebuild — Why Use an Incomplete Kit?
Combined with our OEM-culture and expertise, the comprehensive TransTec evaluation process ensures each transmission kit has everything you need to rebuild it right. Why? Because we know how much each rebuild is worth to your business, and we know you can’t afford to risk an incomplete, inefficient rebuild or, worse yet, a comeback because you didn’t have the parts to rebuild it right the first time.
Chances are if we don’t have it, nobody will
With 92% vehicle application coverage — the broadest in the industry — there is a TransTec® kit for more applications than any other brand on the market. How do we achieve such a high level of coverage? For us, the key is predictive research and data that tells us which kits you need — and therefore, the ones we should be developing next.
We use a specialized calculator tool that uses historical statistics and data to prioritize our kit development schedule. By comparing stats like production numbers, customer data, and information from our parent companies, we create a ranking funnel to aid in new product development decisions. This research and forecasting enables us to have seal kits ready and available before the application’s warranty is up. On average, TransTec kits are available two years after a new application is released — long before you’re likely to see one in your shop.
Trusted Transtec Quality
Our OEM-culture and the comprehensive TransTec evaluation process ensures that each component in our kits — from pan gaskets to O-rings to valve body seals — meets the most stringent quality standards. But we don’t stop there, we continually test our offering to ensure we’re providing you with the best parts to rebuild it right the first time. We know how much each rebuild is worth to your business — and we also know how much a comeback COSTS your business. Inferior kits and components may save you a couple of pennies in the short term, but they always cost you more in the long run. That’s why professionals trust the TransTec quality.

Tailored Solutions for Volume Transmission Rebuilders
While our solutions have traditionally been focused on the needs of the transmission shop, our world-class processes, ISO 9001 Certified facility, and management practices allow us to deliver custom-tailored solutions for volume transmission rebuilders and other unique or regional customers.
For instance, here are just two of the ways we provide flexible solutions to the unique markets we serve:
- Customized packaging is available for volume transmission rebuilders (VTRs) with a station setup. Parts can be packaged in multiples with their own part numbers for individual rebuild stations.
- We can provide individual solutions that allow you to service parts that are not readily available otherwise. Examples of this type of solution include ways to service a “wear item” without replacing an entire planetary, tooling parts that aren’t available in OE, and adjustments to kits for regional variants.
If your operation rebuilds transmission in volume, we’d love to work with you to see what kind of customized solutions we can develop to help you improve your productivity, manage your inventory, and increase your profitability.
