Boston Gear has been a leader and pioneer in manufacturing gearing products since 1877, when we introduced the concept of gear standardization and stock gears - innovations of enormous benefit to power transmission system designers, specifiers, and users. Today, Boston Gear manufactures open gearing at our state-of-the-art facility in Charlotte, NC, where we continue to improve product quality and manufacturing efficiencies with programs like gear cell manufacturing, CAD/CAM design and manufacturing and CNC/DNC programming.
