Drenth Gearboxes enjoys a “rich history”. Founder Johan Drenth, together with his brothers Joop & Gerrit have developed and built gearboxes for motor cross competitions since the 1970’s.

In 1981 the previous experience and accumulated knowledge gained were integrated in the birth of a new and self-owned company: Drenth Motorsport Gearboxes in Enter, situated in the Eastern part of the Netherlands. Since then, as now today, Drenth Motorsport Gearboxes distinguishes itself by way of its specialist knowledge and experience in the development and production of gearboxes, gear sets, and special products for the automotive world.

A success story, where each and every day, we continue to work on with inspiration and dedication so as to constantly improve and perfect our products and our services for our valued customers.

Measurable and Controllable

Care, knowledge and experience during design and manufacturing are essential to producing a perfect final product. Just as important is a proper inspection process.  To aid such a process Drenth Gearboxes employs a system of protocols to record the physical compliance of each component at each step in its production process.

Incoming inspection

Ultimate quality must be “built-in” from the beginning. That’s why Drenth Gearboxes utilizes certified materials in each of the products that it manufactures. Materials that comply with specified requirements determine to a large degree the ultimate quality of the final product.


As a result of the system of quality protocols used during the production and assembly processes, plus the registration of such data in our ERP system, which is specially built for the manufacturing industry, Drenth Gearboxes is able to ensure that each component and completed product is fully (100%) traceable. An inherent guarantee for us, and also for you.
