Jackson Powertrain Keeps Singapore’s Paasenger Vehicles Moving

Singapore – Throughout the years, ZF gas forged relationships with various companies that distribute its transmissions, steering systems,axles,chassis components and other products for marine craft,off-road machinery, and bus and rail vehicles in the commercial sector.However, in February 2012, ZF inked a landmark partnership in order to reach out to the private passenger vehicle sector. Jackson Powertrain Pte Ltd is ZF’s first service partner for automatic transmissions for cars in Singapore.
The Singapore company, founded in 1982 by Jackson Lieu and formerly known as Jackson Vehicle Pte Ltd, started as a general workshop that provided service and repairs for passenger and light commercial vehicles . As the years went by , the company found its niche servicing and repairing only automatic transmissions for passenger vehicles, and revamped its brand image in 2001 to better reflect its specialized service offering.


Since then Jackson Powertrain has continued to grow,fueled by Singapore’s unique car retail market. As Certificate of Entilement (COE) prices rose, car owners began to hold on to their cars for longer, thus increasing the demand for transmission repairs, a trend that has been sending plenty of business Jackson Powertrain’s way. Coupled with that is the fact that Singapore’s major taxi operators such as Comfort Delgro, Premier, Prime, and TransCab service their automatic transmissions with Jackson Powertrain. The company also counts car importers, car-leasing firms and car rental companies among its regular customers.

Singapore’s rapidly expanding population is setting a new trend in the market that looks likely to keep Jackson Powertrain even busier in the near future. Recently, car buyers have experienced a threefold increase in the price of the COE as the government seeks to curb the number of new vehicles on the road. This will inevitably lead to owners choosing to keep their existing cars for longer than usual, which in turn will lead to the inevitable increase in cars needing transmission repairs.These combined market conditions, unique to Singapore, provide the perfect foundation for a long and mutually beneficial relationship between ZF and Jackson Powertrain. ” We are honored to partner ZF in the passenger car transmission sector,” says Jackson Powertrain CEO, Roger Chang.”ZF is regarded as a premier auto transmission maker, and this partnership not only provides us quick and convenient access to original ZF parts but it ensures we receive updated information on all ZF brand products: ZF parts, BOGE, lemforder and SACGS.” This all works to strengthen Jackson Powertrain’s value-add for its customers and also provides a ready and new market for ZF in the passenger vehicle sector- a win-win situation for both parties.
