Integrated Solutions for Success
What does it take to satisfy the custom precision gearing needs of some of the world’s largest OEMs? Columbia Gear answers that question with fully integrated services, cutting-edge production, superior information technology, and large-scale production capacity.
Equally important is our commitment to innovation in everything we do — seeking out new answers and continually adapting to today’s customer challenges. We accomplish this by continually analyzing manufacturing processes… building upon proven design solutions… streamlining production and assembly schedules — always taking ground gearing quality to higher levels.
Whatever it takes. That’s the philosophy on which Columbia Gear’s success is built, and on which we continue to thrive. It’s evidenced in such significant responses as plant expansions, ongoing major capital expenditures, and production reorganization in response to specific new projects and clients.
You’ll see Columbia Gear’s commitment to solutions on a human level as well. Our team response includes representatives from design through production on every project, enhancing overall efficiency and communication. Responding to customer needs with this “no barriers” approach is yet another reason behind Columbia Gear’s continued status as an industry leader.

Our goal is to provide complete support in a total solutions package, and ultimately, to deliver overall project efficiency and value.
