Customer Testimonials

Regarding a medical project:

"First Gear has been instrumental on several projects for C&A Tool. Their knowledge of gear geometry and the ability to design, manufacture and inspect these gears make them a leader in their field. They will work with your engineers and project managers to solve complex manufacturing concerns."

Mark Rhodes, C&A Tool, MinebeaMitsumi Group


"I can't say enough how pleased I am that we partnered with First Gear on a recent custom gear project. Their team has been great to work with every step of the way, from taking time to understand our unique objectives; then putting their gear manufacturing expertise to action for improved tolerances and other design changes on a gear set for our equipment; and ultimately provide fast delivery for the new prototypes. As we begin rolling out the other sizes, I know we can count on a high quality product that meets our needs and specifications in a timely manner."

Jeffrey Miller, Belden


Regarding ISO 17025 Gage Recalibration:

"Partnering with First Gear has added a great addition to the Slone Gear product offerings. They have a very knowledgeable staff, excellent customer service and quick turnaround times. They are always willing to put in extra time to answer any of our questions to help solve problems."

Kim Barnett, Slone Gear International


"Working with First Gear has always been an enjoyable experience. They have a great group of technical folks to work with, always very responsive."

Mike Helm, Dana-Fairfield, Lafayette


Regarding racing transmission and cam/accessory drive gears:

“Thanks for everything you do for us! The transmission shafts and gears that you knocked out for us in that short time-frame in the middle of the season really allowed us to make the most of our starting line launches. Without having the availability to changes ratios in different track conditions we wouldn't have been as good as we became.”

Andrew Hines, five-time NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Champion from Vance & Hines Racing
