Important Announcement to All ATRA members

As we enter into a new financial year, the first move is to calm the nerves and assure all members of IAME ATRA Australia and any associated businesses that there is absolutely no truth to the malicious rumour that IAME ATRA in Australia has disbanded. IAME ATRA is in full swing, supporting members and preparing for the next information overload seminar. Due to mixed attitudes and unresolved differences occurring within the committee, a disgruntled few took it upon themselves to attempt to disrupt the heart and soul of the group.

IAME ATRA is still your industry association and we wish to reassure you that we are not going to be run down by any rumours.

Please, honour your membership and continue your support. IAME ATRA is NOT over.

ATRA Committee
Australasian Transmission Rebuilders Association - Committed to our Members.


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.

If you need your transmission serviced, look for the ATRA logo. An ATRA member is part of your local community, is skilled in transmission repair and trained to provide the products and services associated with a specialised transmission repair centre.
