Who We Are

Allow us to introduce ourselves. We're ETE REMAN, one of the largest and most diverse transmission remanufacturers in the nation. Headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, our production facilities boast almost 200,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Currently, we offer more than 1,400 different transmissions for more than 16,000 foreign and domestic vehicle applications. (It's OK to be impressed.)

But that's not why you're here. You're here because you're interested in learning a bit more about who we are and how you'll fit into our organization. 

Our Philosophy

At our core, we believe in building great products and rewarding our employees for their efforts – and maybe have a little fun while we're at it. Whether it's a gourmet food truck picnic, a swanky all-employee soiree in downtown Milwaukee, or soccer on the side lawn, we want our employees to feel appreciated for their hardwork and dedication – above and beyond the competitive pay and benefits, of course.
