Australia manufacturing got stronger today when ASNU Transmission Products joined with Melbourne based FluidDrive Holdings Pty Ltd to become Australia’s undisputed industry leader in the remanufacturer and production of standard and high performance torque converters.

Remember, if you need high quality components made to suit our tough local conditions ASNU and FluidDrive can supply it.
