Schafer Gear Works
The widest range of precision gears available to fit your specific needs
Schafer Gear Works is one of the most modern, technologically in-tune manufacturers of the widest range of precision-cut gears and machined components. We have been making high-quality gears since 1934, and over the last two decades have boosted production capabilities even further with our 108,000-square-foot, world-class production facility and the latest CNC gear-cutting and machining technology and quality-assurance equipment.
This means your gears exactly match your specific needs with quality you can depend on. Our lean manufacturing means you stay cost-competitive. And our experience means you get knowledgeable, unparalleled customer service.
For even greater service, we have enhanced our capabilities through international alliances in India, Taiwan and Italy. This allows us to partially process your gears overseas but perform critical processes such as heat treating and final gear machining here in the U.S.A., giving you blended pricing while minimizing the risk of overseas sourcing.
