Who We Are: Transmission Technology Pioneers

Founded in 1957 by Mike Hewland, Hewland Engineering Ltd has changed a lot since it first opened its doors. The secret to our success lies in two key factors; a fundamentally exceptional transmission technology product and the ability to continuously adapt to the market demands of the motorsport industry.

At the heart of this philosophy is our purpose built premises in White Waltham, Berkshire, housing more than 120 staff, together with the very latest in precision engineering and manufacturing equipment.

The firm continues to thrive thanks to ongoing investment in all areas of the company, from machinery to advanced design tools. Our dedicated design, engineering and commercial teams ensure that every client gets the attention and service they require, ensuring they get the best possible performance from their chosen transmission.
