Brian McLellan started 360 Gearboxes & Diffs Pty Ltd in 2006 after being seriously ripped off in a previous partnership. Brian as sole Director was driven to build his new business based on honesty, integrity and quality!
The trade sought Brian out for his analytical approach to problem solving and soon it was clear he needed someone to run the business whilst he concentrated on rebuilding and R & D.
His wife Jacqui with her background in IT Management & Customer Service, left her corporate IT career in 2008 just to help out for a short while, but the business grew so fast they moved to a larger premises in 2011 and then in May 2012 360 acquired Japanese Gearbox Wholesalers together with the phone numbers of Stanton Transmissions, Victoria Gearboxes, Commercial Gearboxes & The Gearbox Centre. They did not stop there, later purchasing All Wheel Drive Gearbox Reconditioners in Malvern, which made 360 the largests dedicated manual gearbox workshop in Australia.
2017 saw 360 experience a 40% growth which required yet another move into a larger premises in January 2019.
