Gerald Vess - - President-CEO

Gerald Vess -

I have been in the transmission industry since my father open USA Transmissions in 1981. I started as an apprentice (Floor sweeper and Parts cleaner):) and worked my way up. As years passed I moved up to removing and replacing transmissions then to rebuilding transmissions. When I finally had enough time under my belt, I moved to management where I found my home in the business. I ran the business for my father for about ten years before we decided I should take over and let him retire. I have owned the business for a while now and love what I do. If you walk into our store, you know something is different. We really try to put a new face on the auto repair industry. Please visit our store and see and feel the difference. We would love to meet you! Thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to earning your business!

This is my father Gary Vess Sr. which founded our company in 1981. He sold me the business a few years back and has semi-retired but I wanted to have him here to show my appreciation for all he has done in the past for me and all the employees that are involved here at USA Transmissions. If it wasn't for him having a dream of being a business owner and wanting to provide a service to the community who knows where my employees and I would be today! Thanks dad for all the years and late hours of hard work that put us where we are today.

I have been a mechanic since I was old enough to turn a wrench. I have repaired transmissions , AC, brakes , front end repair, cooling systems and just about every inch of a vehicle. Its just what I love to do. Its nice being able to help people get back on the road and get the places they need to travel.
