Manufacturing and History of Gears

Gear Motions has a long history of gears and has been in the business of gear manufacturing in Syracuse, Buffalo and the surrounding regions for over forty years. We pride ourselves on our quality gear cutting and gear grinding, as well as our dedication to customer service. Since our company’s humble beginnings we have grown from a 1 million dollar company in 1973 to a nearly 13 million dollar company today.

Gear Motions acquired Oliver Gear in 1973. Oliver Gear has a long history dating back to 1892 and is one of the oldest continually operated gear companies in the United States. Nixon Gear was acquired in 1978 and its roots date back over 90 years. In 2011, Gear Motions acquired Pro-Gear who is focused on gear grind only. By making acquisitions of such companies as Oliver, Pro-Gear and Nixon Gear, Gear Motions has been able to continuously bring the management, marketing and financial strengths of a large organization while maintaining the service and quality of smaller, regional shops.

By providing our clients with exceptional customer care, as well as our decades of combined experience, we have been able to make a name for ourselves in the gear manufacturing industry as a reputable, quality gear manufacturing company. With our history of gears you can have confidence that whether you’re in the market for ground, spur or helical gears, our custom precision ground gears can be tailored to fit your unique projects.

Today, Gear Motions is looking to the future and excited to continue to provide our customers with the quality precision gears and outstanding client service they have come to expect over the years.
