Global Gear & Machining was established in 1991 as a high volume precision gear manufacturer, which initially produced products serving applications in the medium and heavy duty truck industry. As a result of a continual focus on quality and the expansion of technical capabilities through strategic investments, Global Gear has expanded its capabilities to include precision gear grinding and shaping serving customers in a diverse set of industries. These investments have provided the path for Global Gear to produce a wide variety of products for applications in the oil and gas, mining, power generation, marine, fracking, agriculture and automotive industries. Now in its third decade of business, Global Gear is again expanding its technical capabilities in gear shaping and grinding through a significant capital investment program which is in progress and will be complete in 2012.

Global Gear was acquired by IMS Companies in 2002. IMS is a diversified group of companies positioned with the size, scale and reach necessary to provide innovative solutions for its customers through custom manufacturing and development of proprietary products. IMS serves a wide array of industries including the appliance, automotive, commercial vehicle, communications, consumer, electronics, medical and various industrial markets.
