Bergmann was CEO of Abart Gear & Machine Co. for 17 years before starting a consulting firm.

On the memorial website his family created at, Fred Young of Forest City Gear said, ?On a personal basis,I recall his words of wisdom to me as I rotated through the AGMA hierarchy and as the president of a gear company.
