About Us

Family owned, customer focused.

General Transmissions is a family business founded in 1991. We design and produce drive solutions that make outdoor power equipment more profitable for OEMs, and more appealing and productive for users. We follow three principles:

Never settle. We never stop seeking new and better ways to make transmissions lighter, stronger, more reliable, more affordable. Through constant innovation, we help our customers keep their competitive edge sharp.

Unquestioned quality: At every price point, our products are designed, tested and proven like no other. They are maintenance-free for life, built to outlast OEM equipment itself, and known for steadfast reliability that impresses manufacturers, dealers, and end users.

Service above all.  Customer service is our most important product. Whatever your challenge, opportunity or issue, we are here to meet it. Our goal is to earn your trust and your business, every day, without fail.

The GT team at work

Located where we’re needed.

GT is now present on every continent where lawn mowers are made, so we can respond faster, shorten delivery times, and lower logistics costs. Our headquarters and R&D center is in Les Herbiers, France: a 130,000 sq. ft. facility that includes highly automated, state-of-the-art machine and injection-molding shops. Our advanced manufacturing plant in Matamoros, Mexico (with a sales office in Brownsville, Texas) allows us to provide one-day shipping to most of our North American customers. Our production facility in Suzhou, China adds to our ability to deliver on-time, on-cost products.
