Continuous Improvement Initiatives

Power drive gear systems for fixed and rotary wing aircraft are as essential as the combustor that creates the thrust for the engine… the “brain” behind the brawn. We recognize this level of importance, driving us to new heights of performance through advances in manufacturing using continuous improvement and lean principles. We fully understand our customers’ needs, wants and expectations, and strive to exceed them all.

Our Goal

Aero Gear’s primary goal as the provider of choice for aerospace gear systems is to use our unmatched gearmaking expertise to provide our customers with a superior product and creative solutions.

Excellence. Expertise. Experience.

State-of-the-Art Facilities & Processes

The overall majority of our Lean Flow processing is conducted within our modern climate controlled 100,000 sq. ft. facility, including unique gear processing equipment such as vacuum carburization, gas quenching, superfinishing, balancing, and non-destructive testing. This enables us to offer significantly shorter lead times, excellent quality control, with greater efficiencies and improved customer service.

This performance return and our ability to meet demanding requirements in both the engineering and manufacturing processes, has led to strong partnerships with both major engine manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers.

Our wish is to build strong, long term partnerships with our customers by achieving superior standards through the excellence and expertise of our dedicated employees.
