Performance Gear Systems Inc. celebrated its tenth year in business on October 31, 2007. The company began as a gear design and consulting operation before becoming a molded gear manufacturer.
While other molding operations moved to offshore facilities, Performance Gear continued to grow as a specialty gear molder in the United States. Repeat business and new accounts have spurred the growth.
According to Keith Hansen, marketing director at Performance Gear, the methods of design, quality, inspection and manufacturing are specific to plastic gears. “We take our customers’ proprietary design very seriously. After all, the gears are normally the heart of our customers’ mechanism.”
