Smith Transmission begain in 1977 when Clarence Smith opened the business. It’s been said that his business started in his own garage out in the valley in the mid-70’s. Having no other shops specializing in transmission repair there was indeed a market for just such a business. In 1979, Bruce Napier purchased the business from Mr. Smith and built the current building and moved Smith Transmission to 1435 National Avenue.
Around 1984 Rob St. Clair purchased the business & equipment and operated the shop until 1987 when Keith Barnard took over. Keith operated the shop, building the business, customer base and reputation for 14 years. He decided to move into the software side of the automotive industry and in 2001 sold the shop to Shawn Hanser.
Shawn has been the leader now for the last 16 years continuing the high quality and value repair work done at Smith Transmission. Shawn brings the backing of a state of the art central rebuilding facility in Hanser’s Automotive out of Billings, MT.
Smith Transmission has been the Helena area’s leader in transmission repair now for almost 40 years!
