GAM Gear, LLC, a provider of precision mechanical motion control components for automation machinery, recently announced significant growth since the global recession. A solid performer in automation, packaging, machine tool, semi-conductor, and other industry market sectors, GAM has seen an average of 29 percent growth annually since 2000. In the first six months of 2010, demand for GAM's inline planetary product line increased 225 percent over the same period the year prior.
During the global economic downturn, GAM continued to invest in product development and expansion of its distribution channels. By transitioning manufacturing to the U.S. and strategically diversifying suppliers, GAM circumvented supply constraints and significantly expedited shipments. A cornerstone of its growth trajectory, the GAM product portfolio features a broad range of gear reducers, servo couplings, safety couplings and motor mount kits. GAM offers an extensive line of bellows couplings for servo applications and the latest in hypoid gear technologies for machines, both of which the company was first to introduce into the North American market.
"Ramping up production capacity and streamlining the supply chain strengthens our ability to bring innovative solutions and superior service levels to valued customers. That level of responsiveness is reflected in the commensurate uptick in orders surpassing our forecasted projections," according to Craig Van den Avont, president, GAM Gear.
