Our History

Our company history dates back to World War II when trucks and heavy equipment were in short supply. The Mills brothers took this as an opportunity and started exporting converted half-tracks to Cuba, where they were used to pull cane cars; Guatemala, where they were used to haul banana out of the mountains; Venezuela, where they had a dealer; Colombia, Mexico, the Philippines, Peru and India. 

The brothers later parted ways and Ray Mills joined hands with another brother, Marty, to form a new business near the Texas/Louisiana Border in Shreveport, Louisiana. It's since then that we've been servicing the automotive, trucking, construction, agriculture, and energy industries with quality repairs, rebuilding, and manufacturing of clutches and driveshafts. 

Service Excellence In the Ark-La-Tex For Over 50 Years

For more than 50 years we've prided ourselves on delivering and servicing the finest quality clutches and driveshafts. 

Clutch & Drive Shaft Inc located on Grimmett Drive in Shreveport, Louisiana was founded in 1960 by Rayburn Mills and later incorporated in 1972. 

In 1970, Ray hired Cosimo as the shop foreman. 

Ray's sons, Randy and Larry Mills, joined him in later years. Randy retired in 2000 and Larry's son, John Mills, joined in 2008.
