January 26, 2022—
Hy-Tech Engineered Solutions and Power Transmission Group, PTG, are pleased to announce the acquisition of Jackson Gear Company of Glenshaw PA, which specializes in the engineering, manufacture and sales of larger gears and shafts. We expect this addition will more than double PTG’s capacity in overall production, as it broadens existing product lines, deepens engineering expertise and improves lead times.

“The ability to provide gears and spur gears up to 72” Maximum Pitch Diameter will be a huge benefit,” observes Doug Ciabotti, Hy-Tech’s president. “Aside from the advantages this brings to new and existing customers in terms of larger gear product availability and additional gear and shaft design engineering know-how, customers can expect it to help address issues of cost and supply chain problems across the board.

Patrick Curry, vice president and general manager of PTG comments: “Once again, we’ve expanded our abilities to address complex gearing challenges – in this case for larger gear applications – which have traditionally been difficult to design and manufacture. Combined with even larger, dedicated production capacity for rush and breakdown requirements, as well as “one-off” special orders, the Jackson acquisition further cements our reputation as the go-to provider of complete gear solutions. Bringing Jackson Gear into the fold gives us more resources to address the needs of dozens of industries – including Mining, Material Handling and Power Transmission – for highly engineered gearing, design consultation and reverse engineering.” 

From gear rating assistance to comprehensive CAD and CAM programs for engineering new or modifying existing products, Jackson Gear brings over 80 years of manufacturing experience to the Hy-Tech family of companies. Specifically, in product lines including Worm Gears, Sprockets, Bevel Gears, Internal Gears, Spur Gears, Helical Gears, Worm Shafts, Pinion Shafts, Helical Shafts and Spline Shafts.  Already utilizing KISSsoft gear design software, PTG has become a leader in both reverse engineering existing gears and in the design and development of complex new gear and transmission systems.  

Continuing Hy-Tech’s leadership position in domestic industrial manufacturing, Jackson Gear joins current brands Quality Gear, Blaz-Man Gear and Gear Products under the PTG banner, as well as the existing Hy-Tech brands: ATP Tools, Parts and Sockets, Thaxton and NUMATX.
