WesTech Gearbox Repair

Westech logo


For close to a century, Western Gear Corporation® set a gold standard for gearbox manufacturing and gearbox repair. They designed and manufactured precision gearing for transmitting power for a long list of applications in virtually every critical industry that helped serve our nation’s infrastructure. The Western Gear industrial products divisions were most prominent in the Western and Southeast regions of the US, with large facilities located in Belmont, California, and in Houston, Texas. Western Gear equipment can be found powering mining conveyors, mixing applications, steel mills, aerospace, maritime, pulp and paper, offshore operations, and several other heavy industrial markets. Western Gear’s legacy line of products includes the brands Speedmaster, Torqmaster, Seamaster, Straitline, Pumpmaster, and Millmaster.

The original owners of Western Gear sold the company in the 1980s to private investors, who took over the business and rebranded the gearbox line as WesTech®. Although the brand name changed, the same breadth of high-quality products and services remained intact.

In 1996 Philadelphia Gear acquired WesTech Gear Corporation (formerly known as Western Gear) along with the rights to the intellectual property of WesTech Gear to expand their customer base and increase the depth and scope of their product portfolio for gearbox manufacturing and gearbox repair. As part of the Timken Power Systems electrical-mechanical drivetrain repair and manufacturing facilities, Standard Machine, through its relationship with Philadelphia Gear, has full repair and manufacturing capabilities for all WesTech brand gearboxes.
