Avon Gear


When Avon Gear opened its doors in 1974, the company was  a specialty shop, producing only simple gear and spline hobbing and shaping  services for local manufacturing companies. That all changed in 1998, when it was acquired by Japan-based Okubo Gear and gained the capital to expand its services into turning, drilling, grinding and balancing. President Matt Korth says this, along with partnering with key suppliers in the iron casting, forging and heat-treating services, allowed Avon Gear to become a full-service “raw to finished part” machine shop that serves a number of large heavy equipment manufacturers. But the company isn’t stopping there.
