Brothers Diesel Performance officially opened its doors in 2005, with Joseph a sole-proprietor, hiring on his younger brother Dominic later in 2010.
Joseph Gambino was born and raised in nearby Eden, New York, where he attended Eden Central School District. During his high school years, he attended Boces for heavy diesel mechanics.
After graduation, Joseph began his career in the automotive world. He attended school in Ohio, where he further studied the diesel mechanics trade. Upon completion, he returned home and began to work for his grandfather as a mechanic.
Joseph and Dominic’s grandfather owned a Dodge dealership, known as “Hamburg Dodge”, in the 1960s. Later, in the 1970s, he sold the Dodge dealer to open the Fairway RV, one of the first of its kind to offer a showroom.
Working as an RV mechanic for his grandfather, he later began to do small jobs on the side out of his own garage in Springville, with the dream of one day owning and operating his own business. A few years later, Brothers Diesel Performance was officially established.
The interest in ‘pulling’ actually began years ago! The two brothers were involved at a young age, with Joe beginning to pull tractors at the age of 16. The boys’ father was an active support team, hauling the equipment to and from events, with the help of Dominic, who was 10 at the time.
Both brothers are active pullers, as well as active members of their local club, Empire State Pullers, making it to nearly every pull that the club offers. They even participate at other pulling events outside their club, as long as there is no conflict in event dates.
Joe owns a 1975 Dodge Bighorn that he competes with in various clubs' events, while Dominic pulls a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 in the 3.0 Limited PS Diesel Class.
