Meet the team


frederick began working for salvatore sciarpa owner of westmar transmission in 1988 as an apprentice, under sal’s guidance frederick learned skills that he still uses to this day. “I owe a lot to Sal, he treated me well, he taught me a lot of skills and now  I wish him well in retirement”. In 1992 frederick went to Eagle Transmission to further hone his skills, moving up to the ranks. Hired as lead technician, he moved to swingman, then transmission builder and finally head re-builder. frederick became the lead builder in 2002. After 3 years as lead builder frederick decided the next step would be to own his own shop. leaving eagle transmission in 2004 he opened up a competing transmission (the transmission clinic) repair shop (that is open to this day). In 2009 frederick was approached by the owner of eagle transmission service inc. with the opportunity to purchase it. frederick wasted little time in deciding that would be a great opportunity. In 2023 I was presented an opportunity to purchase airport transmission. He has added his own touch and customer love it. Currently we own airport transmission, the transmission clinic, eagle transmission and milt & rons transmission are all owned by the Rochester transmission group under frederick’s leadership. we welcome anyone to come in and meet frederick with any questions or concerns you have.
