Biography

Our company began by producing precision gears for Indy-Car engine manufacturers. The demands for knowledge, quality, and precision at that level of competition are at the core of what First Gear has become today.

Our 48,000 square-foot facility located close to I-69 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.


Our reputation for quality and dependability now extends to many gear cutting markets outside automobile racing. We're growing because our customers are profiting from our experience and winning attitude. As more and more companies are outsourcing their gear work, they are finding First Gear a good strategic partner. The more manufacturers demand of us, the more we're growing to satisfy their gear cutting requirements.
