Certified Transmission has been serving the Omaha, Council Bluffs, Lincoln and Kansas City Metropolitan area since 1979.

Peter Fink opened Certified Transmission in 1979 in an abandoned 2 bay gas station in Omaha with $1000 and his tool box. Since that time Certified Transmission has grown into one of the largest independent remanufactured transmission repair and remanufacturing facilities in the country. Certified Transmission has 13 of its own retail stores in 4 states in addition to shipping transmissions to customers nationwide. Certified has two state-of-the-art remanufacturing plants. The Omaha plant has over 106,000 square feet (almost three acres under one roof). The Fort Dodge facility has an additional 40,000 square feet.

These two remanufacturing plants are supplied with torque converters by the converter facility located across the street from the Omaha transmission plant. In 1988 Fink recognized the need to expand into converter remanufacturing. It began on a small scale to supplement converters being purchased from other suppliers. As the company grew it became an integral part of the operation and continued to grow as well. Through growth it was moved several times from the basement of a salvage operation where it began, to the Omaha transmission plant in 1994 and then in 2004 it was moved to its current 36,000 square feet location.

Combining all the facilities, Certified Transmission totals more than 300 employees. Check them out on the web at
