Zumbrota Drivetrain was originally just a small repair shop in Minnesota called Zumbrota Bearings and Gears (ZBAG). In 2013, the brand’s 60,000 square-foot facility benefitted from a major expansion, adding a transfer case division. Four years later, Zumbrota welcomed a new facility that expanded its capacity to over 1,000 units per month. In April of 2017, Zumbrota Drivetrain was acquired by RANDYS Worldwide, giving customers over 16,000 part numbers. That November, ZBAG changed its name to Zumbrota Drivetrain as the company’s line of bearings and gears expanded to offer the widest selection of drivetrain parts in the nation.
Zumbrota Drivetrain’s remanufacturing is carried out in a number of different stages. Firstly, a manual transmission, transfer case, or differential is thoroughly inspected to uncover the source of the issue. This could be a crack in the case, which results in oil leaks and excessive wear of the gears and bearings. The problem could also lie somewhere in the design flow of the early version of its assembly. Next, Zumbrota measures all dimensions and tolerances of each individual component to see if it matches factory specs. Any and all worn out parts are replaced, and the whole assembly is rigorously tested to ensure it works exactly as it should in any application.
