Boston Gear – Over 100 Years of Excellence
When it comes to power transmission products, companies around the world rely on Boston Gear. With a history that stretches back for over 135 years, they have been around longer than many of their competitors, and their experience shows in the quality of their products.
First established in 1877, Boston Gear began as a small machine shop, manufacturing gear-cutting machines at a time when there was no standardisation of gears. Boston Gear introduced this concept, which was quickly embraced by power transmission designers, and also users who recognised the intrinsic benefits of being able to use stock gears in their products. By 1929 they had established themselves as the largest manufacturer of stock gears in the world.
Further innovations followed; the concept of enclosed drives was pioneered by Boston Gear, who still dominate the category today with a range of dependable and high performance products, and today their advanced computer design capabilities, and extensive experience, make them an excellent choice whenever a custom solution is needed.
Boston Gear today has a large manufacturing facility in North Carolina, where they produce an impressive range of over 20,000 power transmission products. These products are used worldwide in many industries, including the food and drink industries, where Boston Gear’s high standards consistently meet, and even exceed, the strict criteria of their users and the relevant regulatory bodies.
As part of Altra Industrial Motion, Boston Gear follows the Altra Business System, which puts a strong emphasis on the “Voice of the Customer” and a focus on constant improvements to quality and customer satisfaction, a process which ensures that their products are always of the very highest standards.
