About Us

Western Transmission Idaho Falls

In 1969, James(Jim) R. McGeachin opened an AAMCO Transmission franchise on Skyline Drive. Jim was dedicated to providing quality transmission service with an honest reputation. After four months with the franchise Jim decided he wanted more flexibility in servicing his customers and decided to become independent and Western Transmission was born. In 1992 Jim retired from the business selling the company to his son Jimmy and his wife Janice. After years of growth and operating at capacity an opportunity came up for Jimmy to buy a newer and bigger facility. In late 2017 Western Transmission moved to Broadway where they are able to service more customers and get jobs done quicker. Today Jimmy's son James is working in the business as well, James is the third generation to be involved in the business.
