ProTorque | About The Staff At ProTorque Converters
ProTorque, founded in 1983, is family owned and operated. ProTorque has grown from a small, local torque converter rebuilder, to a full-line manufacturing facility with an R & D division and world-wide marketing and sales capabilities. Since its inception, ProTorque has focused on quality and quality has been the reason for its phenomenal growth and customer loyalty.
ProTorque's product line includes the highest quality remanufactured torque converters available, specializing in hard-to-find units including imports, antiques and industrial models. The Research and Development division was started when "Mr. Joe" began developing torque converters for his own street rod projects. Ever since then high performance torque converters have been ProTorque's passion.
