Capabilities: Agile Transmission Development

Listing capabilities is one thing, being able to execute on them quickly with great results is another thing altogether.

Our specialist capabilities in high specification transmission design and manufacture positions Hewland in an ideal place to provide clients with cutting edge bespoke technological solutions both within motorsport and across a variety of other sectors. Our unique gear profile is one of the features that gives our transmissions the performance and longevity that our customers demand in high performance race conditions – and increasingly in performance road and electric vehicle applications.

We are a self-contained design, build, test and manufacture transmission company schooled in quick turn-around demanded by our motorsport heritage. With all the know-how and equipment under one roof, we can develop virtually any transmission quick and right the first time. Furthermore, with our own in-house volume and mass production options, we design all our products for manufacture meaning our customers don’t have a lengthy manufacturability step to go through.

60 years of designing transmissions for the top motorsport categories in the world makes us an obvious choice if you are looking for a race car transmission but it’s also a very good approach if you are designing a high-performance transmission for a road car or special project.
