About Us

About Performance Transmissions


Performance Transmissions started in Arlington, Texas in 1996. It has been owned and operated by Bret Young to this day.  Bret is a vital part of the operation's success, due to the fact that he's one of the few owners involved in the day to day operations. To ensure quality, he is also one of the shop's lead builders.

By late 2000, the business had outgrown the former facility.  In 2002, Bret bought the land and building in Kennedale, Texas. The land encompasses 3.5 acres.

The building has six automotive lifts and a separate, enclosed transmission building room. The transmission Dyno machine is located adjacent to the building room.  In 1996, the Dyno machine was purchased specifically for testing purposes of the high performance units. Carryout units are tested for shift quality and hydraulic integrity.

Every one of our technicians, every one of our managers - basically every single employee from management on down - has 20 to 30 years experience.  Bret's dad, Roger Young, has been in the transmission business, since 1978 as an owner. 

We also work with outside techs and transmission specialists.  We take great pride in each and every unit that passes through our facility; thus, hoping we can serve your company in the future.
