The company

Xtrac was founded in 1984 and has become the world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance transmissions for the motorsport and automotive industry. The business supplies most of the world’s top motorsport teams in both two- and four-wheeled formulae across the globe, from MotoGP to Formula 1™. Xtrac is also at the forefront of hybrid and electric vehicles developments, supplying hybrid transmissions to technology leading companies such as Williams Advanced Engineering and electric transmissions to the Formula E racing series.

The Inflexion difference

Inflexion’s specialist engineering experience, gleaned through its investments in Shimtech and Aspen Pumps, make it well placed to help Xtrac management drive sustainable growth. Our investment is supporting the extension of Xtrac’s factory, which was opened in November 2018 by Prime Minister Theresa May, the purchase of additional machinery and the growth of Xtrac’s team of technical engineers to enable the business to meet rising customer demand. We are also deepening the business’ presence in the US and Asia.
