Transmission components manufacturer Dodson Motorsport has announced a significant investment in their business from New Zealand investment fund Booster Tahi.

Dodson’s are world leaders in producing aftermarket dual clutch transmission components for high end and performance vehicles such as Audi, BMW, Porsche, Mercedes and Lamborghini. The deal allows them to build on their rapid growth through investment in new facilities, acquisition of suppliers and further supply chain benefits.

Owner Harry Dodson (pictured right) says the investment comes at a time where there are real opportunities to grow Dodson’s internationally and increase New Zealand’s motorsport presence on the global stage.

“We want to maintain our position of being a global leader in the modified performance vehicle sector. Tahi’s investment enables us to grow through speed to market and create more jobs here in New Zealand,” says Dodson.

“This investment will allow us to relocate to an enhanced fit-for-purpose facility, purchase new plant equipment and increase the level of research and development in New Zealand rather than rely on offshore development.

“The market potential is growing fast and we need to establish greater scale to meet market demand. This investment from Booster Tahi allows us to do exactly that.”

Dodson’s upgrades to existing transmissions radically improve their reliability and durability, particularly when under racing conditions. Dodson’s innovative components are now in demand worldwide and with a global distribution network of over 150 dealers and distributors in the United States, Middle East and Asia they are poised for significant expansion and growth.

“We’ve grown from a small two-man crew to a global leader in specialised high performance vehicle modification, with our transmission components delivering several luxury car world speed records,” says Dodson.

“Tahi’s investment also enables us to explore vertical expansion options within the industry resulting in additional supply chain and partner benefits. We’re ready to take this partnership with Tahi to the next level, keep growing, and cement our place on the world stage as the place to go if you want to win.”
