Major changes have taken place in automatic transmission service in the past decade. The growths of front-wheel drive vehicles, electronics and other factors have caused a dramatic increase of transmission models. In the early days of the automatic transmission, there may have been only five or six transmission models in service. Today, that number is nearly 250 (and growing). The complexity of today’s newer transmissions calls for more parts plus improved quality and service.
Today’s customer looks for quick service to get car or truck back on the road. This requires a reliable source of parts – including kits – to meet the service/repair expectations of customers, regardless of the year, make and model of the car or truck. This means a supplier with both depth and breadth of coverage, and the ability to deliver the parts and kits when you need them.
Pioneer Automotive® was founded in 1946 by the late Herman A. Shields, who owned a successful automotive parts manufacturer’s representative firm in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi. He formed the company to service the needs of his clutch re-manufacturer customers. His goal was simple: Supply the needed, hard-to-find parts for these businesses. Little did he know that the company he founded would become a leading supplier of high quality components to the Automotive aftermarket. For over 30 years under the guidance of the Shields family, Pioneer growth was based upon the twin cornerstones of customer service and reputation of the "Source for hard-to-find parts." With Pioneer's state-of-the-art distribution network and vertical integration through base manufacturing on key product lines gives Pioneer a strong and competitive package of Powertrain related products. For 68 years, the Pioneer story has been unique. Pioneer’s growth has been based upon the philosophy of Herman Shields that success must be based upon customer service and satisfaction.
