It must be retirement month because we have another awesome employee that is retiring this week. We will be saying goodbye to Dave Barnes. Dave is one of those guys that could do it all. Not just transmission related, but has real know-how about anything, from plumbing to electrical, to fixing whatever did not work. He’s been with Certified for a long time and basically helped build almost every department in the company.
Dave was a crucial factor in getting the Converter plant it’s start. He would even travel to CA with our owner, Peter Fink, to learn how build converters back in the day. Dave has pretty much helped in every aspect of the company. If something wasn’t working right, Dave was always there to help. The list could go on forever for how much Dave has helped with the company.
Dave, thanks again for all the great times and all the things you taught others here. We will definitely miss you around here!

Another awesome, long-time employee of ours is retiring. John Griffin worked for us since 1990, for 34 years at our retail shops. He’s an excellent diagnostician and a fountain of automotive knowledge and is great at training other techs and passing along that knowledge to them. John is all around a super nice person and all of our shops loved having him around. Saying goodbye to such an asset to our retail shops is not easy, and we’ll all miss him. We wish him well in the next phase of his life. Enjoy your retirement, John!

We would like to once again spotlight another very important employee of ours. Jim Richardson has a long, GREAT history with us. When Jim came to us, he was one of the rare people that already had transmission experience. He started out at the Poppleton plant where we only had about 10 builders, and that goes back a long time ago! After being a builder, Jim became a tech director and played a huge roll in training a lot of our other builders and helped them become better. There is a good chance that Jim might have helped improve more builders than anyone else at Certified. After being a tech director, Jim started doing research on warranty transmissions, researching why certain transmissions failed, and in doing so we could get that information to help build a better transmission. He also took that knowledge and went to the builders to show and explain to them what he found and how to prevent failures in the future. Jim has easily looked at 1000’s of transmissions, and we are pretty sure he touched all of our builders at one time or another.
Well today is Jim’s last day with us, and we want to thank him so much for being an important part of Certified for a long time. Thank you, Jim, for all you have done and all the people you helped over your 33 years with us, including our owner and CEO, Peter Fink. We hope you enjoy your retirement and you will be greatly missed!

Certified Transmission would like to spotlight a long-time employee of ours:

Scott started in October 1997. When he started, he was responsible for delivering units to new customers, picking up cores, and even towing vehicles to our retail stores for warranty repairs, in addition to prospecting new customers for the wholesale and retail divisions. As CTR grew, his responsibilities were divided into other departments and prospecting and maintaining customers became his eventual sole responsibility.

One of Scott’s strengths was his dedication to his customers by making long-lasting connections with them. He was proud of the Certified name and product and got his customers excited about it, too. He even had the Certified Transmission logo embroidered on some of his winter coats that he purchased himself. He wore that logo with pride & represented the company with a high level of professionalism.

We look forward to seeing how Scott can apply the same passion into the next phase of his life.

Thank you for all your contributions through your tenure. We wish you the best in all your future endeavors.

North America and Australia are the areas with the highest number of automatic transmissions, with most other countries counting vehicles with manual transmissions in higher numbers. In fact, many countries require individuals to learn and be tested on the operation of a vehicle with a manual transmission.

Just a year after GM introduced the Hydra-Matic, we saw the United States become involved in World War II. At this point, they began manufacturing automatics to power military tanks and vehicles. We also saw the very early development of the Dynaflow transmission, which actually underwent early testing in the M18 Hellcat tank destroyer during the Second World War (though it wasn’t actually used in a car until 1947).
