Quality is key when it comes to reman gearboxes - 21.07.2017

In a price sensitive market, demand for remanufactured gearboxes is increasing but ensuring consistent quality is crucial.reman gearbox

Leading reman gearbox specialist Ivor Searle has seen a continuing increase in demand for its wide range of remanufactured transmissions, not least because of the high cost of purchasing brand new OEM gearboxes. Sourcing brand new gearboxes is generally far too expensive for independent garages to replace when operating in a highly price driven market. To remain competitive therefore, reman gearboxes are an attractive proposition.
However, although it’s more economical to source a remanufactured gearbox, product quality is a key factor as the complex process of restoring the unit back to OEM standard requires significant technical expertise and rigorous inspection procedures.  To achieve this, Ivor Searle employs the same quality-focused ethos from over 70 years of engine remanufacturing expertise when it comes to the company‘s transmission remanufacturing facility, which is certified to ISO 9001:2008.
The company offers a wide range of manual reman gearboxes for petrol and diesel cars and light commercial vehicles, all of which undergo the same intensive remanufacturing process.  Each transmission is stripped down, thoroughly cleaned and inspected against OE specification.  Bearings, seals and gaskets are replaced and all other parts are checked against OE specifications with non-conforming items replaced.  

Furthermore, to ensure peace of mind, all Ivor Searle reman gearboxes are covered by a transferable 12-month unlimited mileage parts and labour warranty.  Gearboxes are also supplied with pre-installation guidelines and model-specific instructions, if required.
Ivor Searle holds comprehensive stocks to ensure first class customer service and minimum vehicle downtime.  The business offers free next day delivery throughout the UK mainland on stock items, if ordered before 3.30pm.  With an extensive distributor network, no matter where you are, you’re never far away from an Ivor Searle quality product.
