    Transmission Specialties, General Manager Ken Kelly says, has an overriding philosophy that is a starting point for everything it does. “We like to be partners with our customers which is different than filling the role of supplier. As partners, when they grow, we grow. And, when we grow, by bringing them new products to sell, they grow.”

Nine of the 12 issues published each year are focused on the products, services and suppliers relating to a specific profit center within the retail shop.
