Nixon Gear & Oliver Gear
Oliver Gear, in Buffalo, NY, was our first acquisition in 1973. This added large diameter gearing and coarse pitch rack to our capabilities as well as tripling the size of the company.
Nixon Gear, in Syracuse, NY, was purchased out of bankruptcy in 1978. This acquisition added precision ground gearing and moderate OEM volumes to the newly formed corporate package, as well as substantially enlarging the sales territory into the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic States.
Today, the Gear Motions network is comprised of our original two facilities: Oliver Gear and Nixon Gear. Between the two gear manufacturing locations, we are equipped to handle virtually any customer request.
