Our Technical Expertise & Experience
MTP Drivetrain Services takes great pride in rebuilding sound and reliable Powertrain components. Our employees are the primary reason behind our success. MTP Drivetrain strives to hire many military veteran mechanics, in our attempt to bring hands-on experience to the remanufacturing of military vehicle drivetrain components. Approximately 30% of MTP Drivetrain employees are military veterans, but military experience is not all there is in producing high quality military parts.
MTP Drivetrain Services is an authorized Allison Dealer. As part of our Allison Dealership, our transmission rebuilders are all certified Allison Transmission Technicians. We are also approved to remanufacture all military Allison transmissions in the field today. The MTP Transmission shop is led by Richard Johnson, a 30+ year veteran of servicing transmissions and vehicle driveline components. In addition to the expert personnel, we also have a valve body tester and two transmission dynamometers that we use to test every transmission that leaves our facility.
MTP Drivetrain Services has a full-service machine shop for the remanufacturing of engine components. Our machine shop is led by Charles Nix, a veteran engine machinist. MTP is pushing our machinists through the AERA Engine Machinist Certification program. MTP has the most machining equipment of any engine shop in Louisiana which gives us the flexibility we need to support the wide variety of engines in the military fleets.
MTP Drivetrain Services has a number of expert engine builders, each with years of experience. The engine build shop is led by Philip Rushing, a GM-certified master mechanic who also had achieved ASE Master Mechanic Certification. MTP currently writes specific work instructions for each contract to ensure that each contracts’ requirements are met in regards to remanufacturing engines. Our engine builders work on each engine from start to finish in a single work station and are rated on their efficiency to our internal rebuild standards and also on their quality. Our builders take great pride in beating the standard times and also on leading the group in quality workmanship. Our engine builders are also encouraged to pursue the AERA Engine Machinist Certification or the ASE Master Mechanic Certification. After the engines are built, each unit will be tested on one of our three engine dynamometers to ensure performance to the specifications and no leaks are discovered.
MTP Drivetrain Services has a group focused on the remanufacturing of axles, transfer cases, drums, and other driveline components. This Axle shop is led by Joe Boydstun, an employee for the last seven years and also earned a degree in Industrial Engineering Technology. As an approved distributor for Meritor Defense and other brands; MTP is able to stay current with developing technology of axles and driveline components. We have also custom designed test equipment and remanufacturing equipment to be efficient and consistent with the quality of the products we remanufacture.
Failure is not an option for our customers. Many of our employees are military veterans and many also have family members who are currently serving our country. We understand that when a soldier or marine needs a vehicle to get them out of harm’s way, it needs to perform and it needs to perform now. These needs of our customers keep us focused on the quality, reliability, and performance of our products. Our well trained workforce enables us to maintain our high standards and success rating.
