New Brand Is Set to Hit The Driveline Industry!
After a long, happy and successful career with leading driveline manufacturer Tran-x, the now former CEO and driving force of the brand Dan Jones has decided to launch his own brand 3JDriveline.
The industry was surprised when parent company ASE (Auto Sport Engineering) announced the closure of Tran-x and the subsequent sale of the business to main competitor Quaife Engineering.
We asked former CEO Dan Jones for comment:
‘Being at Tran-x has been the happiest years of my working life so far and after almost 13 years I’m proud to say that we had developed the Tran-x brand and products into something that Quaife felt was worth buying and I really do wish them every success with it.
Leaving Tran-x was not an easy decision and at that point, although I had been approached, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but for me it was time to take control of my life.
Once I had the time to think, I explored starting my own business, but when an opportunity arose to acquire shares in a company that would enable me to actually do it the answer became obvious. Now I intend to build my own brand and a range of products that exceed anything I’ve done before, and I’m really looking forward to it.
3J Driveline will be producing a range of Driveline components including LSD’s. Crown-wheel and pinions, half-shafts, steering racks, flywheels and gears.
We wish Dan every success and wait in anticipation for a product release date.
