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™.

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 former 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.
Inflexion shares our values; its investment will accelerate our ambitious growth strategy, developing the next generation of high-end automotive transmission systems and expanding our coverage of the high-performance hybrid and electric car transmission market. This partnership with Inflexion supports Xtrac’s ethos of employee ownership, and our team look forward to a new chapter in the continuing development and growth of our company.
