Growth in remanufactured transmissions in high gear - 11.05.2021

Ivor Searle's Commercial Director, David Eszenyi, was interviewed by Aftermarket Magazine on the subject of remanufactured transmissions and how the market has grown since the start of the pandemic. IVS_Engine_Gearbox-(1).jpg

Have there been some changes to the transmission market?
The surge in home delivery, which according to the ONS grew by 46% in 2020, has created strong growth in demand for remanufactured LCV transmissions.  Alongside fleets, a large number of these light vans are run by owner operators and are typically older vehicles that are being placed under a demanding workload. Ivor Searle has seen this translate into unprecedented demand from workshops for our remanufactured gearboxes to replace failed LCV units.
Why should workshops consider a remanufactured transmission?
Our high quality remanufactured gearboxes typically cost around 40% less than a brand new OEM unit.  This saving helps workshops to gain a competitive edge in today’s price-sensitive repair market by providing them with an attractive price proposition for their customers who require a major unit replacement.  However, while it is more economical to source a remanufactured transmission, quality is an essential factor when choosing a supplier.  With this in mind, all Ivor Searle gearboxes are remanufactured under a quality management system certified to ISO 9001:2015.
What does Ivor Searle offer?
Ivor Searle offers an all makes range of remanufactured manual gearboxes for cars and LCVs.  Our range reflects the latest trends in the UK’s vehicle parc and offers over 90% coverage.  To guarantee peace of mind, Ivor Searle gearboxes are covered by a transferable 12-month unlimited mileage parts and labour warranty.  Workshops are also supplied with pre-installation guidelines and model-specific instructions where required. We also offer next day delivery on stocked units ordered before 3.30pm.
