The food and food-packaging industries require gears that can work reliably with little or no down time, often in particularly harsh environments.
Our gears are found in almost every fast-food restaurant, buried deep inside the soft-serve machine, and cranking away in the automatic broiler. Two very different environments, but both critical to the successful operation of the restaurant. Long, complicated cleaning procedures and frequent maintenance are too costly for the user, so the manufacturers of these machines trust Forest City Gear to keep them cooking.
The food-packaging industry has become highly automated over the past two decades. This helps keep food costs low, but means that any delay can have huge consequences. Our gears are crucial to the industrial machines that wrap food as it flies down the line.
