TransGo Celebrates its 60th Year Anniversary

EL MONTE, CA- January 20, 2019 – When Gil Younger started TransGo in 1959, little did he know, 60 years later, the brand would be one of the most trusted and revered brands in the automatic transmission industry.

“Gil’s passion for helping others and problem-solving were the focal points of his life and career. His priorities always centered around helping fellow builders by providing them with the best possible product,” says David Hardin, Director of Research, Development and Engineering and personal friend to Gil.

Gil Younger passed away in 2013, at the age of 83, but his ideas, efforts and passion live on today. With new innovations, new products and over 80 worldwide patents, TransGo still believes in its founder’s motto which was first published as an original industry article in 1975 and reprinted several times over the years: REPAIR THE AUTOMOBILE CORRECTLY, THE FIRST TIME.

“TransGo has remained true to our mission and vision for six decades and has thus become one of the best known and most popular valve body repair solutions in the world today,” says John Landry, Vice President, TransGo.
