The PNH Difference: High Quality & Dependability

We are true torque converter professionals. We do not just cut open used converters and weld them back together and call it good enough. If you want hasty, cheap, low quality converters—then PNH is NOT for you. Show More

How PNH Brings Relentless Quality to your Torque Converter:

  • Every single torque converter processed in our facility goes through an exhaustive checkpoint protocol to find EXACTLY why it failed.
  • Next, we implement numerous corrective actions to fix common failure points for each specific model. We see more torque converters in a single day than most competitors see in a year; which gives us a tremendous amount of insight and statistics to fully understand OEM design flaws. In addition to failure point corrections, we get to the root cause of the problems and implement changes so your torque converter lasts.
  • Converters are then thoroughly rebuilt with all the new and necessary corrective actions in place; ensuring future breakdowns don’t occur!
  • Precision is not just our name, it is what we do. The tolerances that we maintain during the rebuild process ensure you are getting the best of the best.
  • Our facility sets the bar on technology and process flow. Every single converter is built to exceed your expectations. Brand new components, high production efficiencies, so you get more for less.

When you get a torque converter from Precision of New Hampton, you are not getting "just" a torque converter! You are getting the BEST of the BEST!

Customer Testimonies

Booker Trans, Inc.
(Enid, OK)

"The fact that I do not have any problems with Precision of New Hampton, Inc. torque converters and I get free delivery right to my front door is great. I've dealt with a couple of other torque converter companies and they couldn't keep my business supplied with what I needed.

Twenty-five years being in business I like the consistent quality of torque converters Precision of New Hampton, Inc. has to offer along with the consistency on keeping me supplied with what I need.

I feel very confident when I call Precision of New Hampton, Inc. with any questions. They definitely know their product and can assist you with any questions you might have."

Jerry's Transmission Service
(Guilford, CT)

"Since we have been using your converters, we have less than a 1% return on over 1,100 units used in the last two years. Of the 1% that we returned, some of them were not torque converter failure but you kindly replaced them for us without any conflict. We have been extremely pleased with the quality of your product because it directly affects our quality. We have been in business for over 43 years in one location, so quality is very important to us. We give a one-year unlimited mileage warranty with each unit and your product has met our demands.Due to the fact that we are located on the east coast and you are in the mid-west, it is important to us that we receive our converters in a short time frame. You have been extremely accommodating to us in regards to your prompt delivery service. Thanks again and we will continue to use your excellent product."

-Paul R. Dostie & Brian B. Dostie
