Your transmission specialists since 1985.
Ever since Vic Lisiewski was attending school in Mount Carmel, he knew he wanted to be a mechanic. While he was at the Williamsport Area Community College, he studied solely transmissions for 2 years so that he could specialize in the area of automotive repair, which Vic enjoyed most. When Vic graduated from WACC, he worked at SV Transmissions and gained a plethora of transmission knowledge so that he could utilize it at his own automotive repair garage. After working just 2 years at SV Transmissions, Vic began his career as a self-employed transmission specialist at Vic's Transmissions.
In 1985, Vic built a fully equipped garage in the back of his mother's yard on South Locust Street in Mount Carmel. It was in this location that Vic founded his principles that he continues to follow to this day: honesty with his customers, friendliness, and above all, quality service that is based on Vic's unfailing dedication to his trade. Vic also began his ATSG Certification in Mount Carmel, in which he can offer customers a one year or 12,000 mile nationwide warranty, along with annually attending the transmission service group's seminars.
In the years while Vic was beginning his business, and during every year that followed, Vic received lots of help from his wife, Julie, who now helps with payroll and other book work; his mother, Dorothy, who has kept the office work neat, organized, and correct; and his grandfather, Tom, or also know as Pop-pop, who was eager to help in any way that he could, especially in constructing various devices that made the strenuous work in the garage much easier. Perhaps it was because of this loving help that Vic's Transmission continued to grow.
After 15 years of working in Mount Carmel and opening up an additional location in the same town to stock all the parts that just couldn't fit in the main garage any more, Vic felt that it was time to expand. Vic's Transmissions officially moved to 146 N. Market Street in Elysburg in November of 1999. Now, the business has a 3000 square ft. garage with three lifts and lots of storage space, a spacious waiting room, where customers can comfortably sit and read, and an equally spacious office, where Vic keeps his electronic devices up to date and organized.
Vic's Transmissions began with one employee, who was Vic himself. Today in 2017, the business has 6 employees, who are all very qualified, extremely hard working, and always friendly. Steve Cambria has been working with Vic since the business was in Mount Carmel. Andy Bendas and Tim Brouse began working for Vic here in Elysburg, and are dedicated technicians who make Vic's Tranmsissions a great place to work, as well as a comfortable place to visit.
