Our association

ATRA (Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Australasia) is a division of the Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers (IAME) and brings together a professional, highly skilled and dedicated group of transmission repairers in Australia and New Zealand.

Originally founded in 1982 the core objective of the group is to assist the ATRA member and through them the automatic transmission industry to stay abreast of technical information and trends. Members are kept informed of the constant changes in the transmission industry, with articles and information sourced both locally and from overseas and circulated via the ATRA Newsletter and website.
