I was originally trained and schooled in Chemical Engineering, even some graduate school in chemical engineering. I worked for 12+ years for one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. I felt stifled and always wanted to do the right thing, but corporate big wheels, wanted otherwise, and as long as I was solely responsible for their non working designs or over budget purchases, all was good. So I left and started in the transmission business with a different concept: Be honest, employ competent mechanics, and competitive pricing. 36 years later we still adhere to those principles.
