Our Story

Over 25 years ago Steve Coley, our award-winning Owner and Managing Director, had a customer whose constant challenge was forklift operators “hotshifting”. This was causing major damage to the transmissions on their forklift truck fleet. Not only were the repairs expensive, the loss in productivity was even more so.

With Steve’s extensive electronics knowledge he researched the problem in depth. He then developed a prototype controller which underwent extensive testing. The controller was then installed on a forklift truck and underwent further testing, proving to be hugely successful. The prototype controller became the first generation of “Gear Saver” and Transmon Engineering was born.

Today, the TE controller has evolved into our iTEch Controller which is a combination of auto gear change, tyre saver, idle shut down and multi-zone speed control.
