Effective immediately, leading high performance drivetrain specialist RT Quaife Engineering Ltd is delighted to announce the purchase of all tooling, designs and intellectual property relating to the Tran-X brand of transmission components from its parent company Auto Sport Engineering of Coventry.

As such, Quaife is now able to offer Tran-X’s existing trade and retail customers the vast majority of the firm’s current range ex-stock, including the popular Tran-X clutch plate limited slip differentials, close-ratio gearkits and Ford English/Atlas axle crown-wheel and pinion sets.

Quaife has transferred production capability for the Tran-X range to its Sevenoaks headquarters, where manufacturing of new Tran-X stock is already underway to ensure continuity of supply.

Existing retail pricing for the Tran-X brand will be held in the short term but placed under review. Quaife also aims for a continuation of existing sales relationships with Tran-X’s trade clients, both in the United Kingdom and internationally.

The directors of Auto Sport Engineering are pleased to have completed the sale of Tran-X to Quaife Engineering. Auto Sport Director, Peter Edge said: “We feel we have taken Tran-X as far as we can and are delighted that a market-leader such as Quaife Engineering will be involved in the future development of the brand.”

Commenting on the announcement, Quaife Director Sharon Quaife-Hobbs said: “Tran-X was launched over thirty years ago and the brand is well-known amongst professional motorsport teams, club racers and car enthusiasts. The acquisition of Tran-X by Quaife allows us to seamlessly integrate the company’s product range into Quaife’s facilities and stringent quality criteria, while bringing it to a much larger potential market.”

“We now offer Quaife’s transmission customers a greater choice of differential options to suit their individual driving preferences, styles and technical requirements than ever before,” comments Quaife Director Michael Quaife. “In addition, key Tran-X products such as the English and Atlas crown-wheel and pinions sets perfectly complement Quaife’s current high performance driveline product range.”
