History of TransAxle

TransAxle was formed in 1979 with a single location in Cinnaminson, NJ. We have steadily grown to a 28 location, remanufacturing and distribution business focused on serving the commercial vehicle and industrial markets.

Our primary business is the recovery and remanufacturing of drive train related components (transmissions, differentials, hydraulic pumps and motors). We have added the distribution of most name brand products consumed in the fleet business. We are authorized distribution partners with ArvinMeritor, Eaton, Dana, Bendix, and over 50 other OE product lines that are crucial to your operations.

The business was acquired in 2006 by Graham Partners – a middle market Private Equity firm located in suburban Philadelphia, PA. Since the acquisition, TransAxle has been able to speed our growth by making additional acquisition and funding the entry into additional product lines.

Throughout our history, the principal difference from competition is the knowledge and expertise of our people. TransAxle was one of the first to employ a strategy of having Product Managers in the distribution business. This laser like focus on the suppliers, applications and issues associated with the various product categories allows TransAxle to offer a range of solutions that are fact based and customer specific.

We take this expertise to the market through a 35 person field force that are actively focused on the end customers on a daily basis.
