SAENZ Transmission Europe was first launched at the Autosport International Show, NEC Birmingham in January 2008 by Mike Moloney.

Mike started rallying in 1995 and with a class position on his first day out, it was clear that he was a very demanding driver on his Mk 2 Escort rally car. Several gearboxes later after retiring from an event and losing another good result due to gearbox failure, Mike stumbled on the Saenz TT3 during a visit to New York. It was exactly what he was looking for, a gearbox with drop gears, lots of ratios and on contacting the factory he learned that it could be shipped to the four corners of the world and never be returned to the factory for maintenance. From the transmission drawings Mike could see that they were sturdy and low maintenance and all technical issues he had were answered by the head engineer at Saenz. Unlike other manufacturers, there were no secrets and nothing was a problem at Saenz, which made him feel at ease purchasing a transmission 10,000 miles away.

After the first test with the new TT3 gearbox, Mike's rally car performed like it never did before and it showed on the times at the end of the stage. He finally had a proper gearbox that performed 100%. Upon congratulating Saenz on such a fine product, they asked him to become the European distributor for Saenz, which meant a trip to Argentina for a course on maintenance of all their transmissions and developing the TT3 to work in the Mk 2 Escort and other rear wheel drive cars in Europe.

Based on the west coast of Ireland, 30km from Shannon International Airport, S.T.E.'s facilities include the use of a testing track for all its transmissions to optimise the selection available for all requirements e.g. race/rally. S.T.E. also provides complete back up service for all its transmissions with a full range of parts in stock for the TT3 including Magnaflux black light crack testing in 2012.

Saenz is dedicated to the total satisfaction of its clients, achieved through its unstoppable pursuit of delivering products of maximum technology at realistic prices.
