About Us

Innovative Rack and Gear

Since 1995, when Zen and Jerry started the company, our reputation for quality and service on custom and stock gears & gear racks has driven growth to our current size: 20,000 sq. ft. and over 20 employees.  

Investments in the latest technologies for precision gear rack manufacturing and highly skilled craftsmen are the reasons why Innovative Rack & Gear (IRGCo) should be your quality source for gears and especially precision hard-cut and precision soft-cut gear racks.  Customers’ requirements are met with dependable service.  The recent acquisition of a Wenzel CMM assures the accuracy and quality that customers have come to expect.

IRGCo manufactures a wide variety of custom commercial and precision, high quality gear racks for the machine tool, automation, construction, mining, oil, gas, offshore, steel, healthcare, precision instrument, aerospace, and defense industries among others.

Reverse engineering on replacement parts and break down service are provided for those times of critical need.  A commitment to customers leads IRGCo to strive for the most economical solution, whether custom tailored to your needs or using standard alternatives, without compromising quality and with finished products delivered on time.

In addition, IRGCo handles the more complicated aspects of general machining with an assortment of Haas and Hurco CNC machining centers and lathes.  The recent addition of a Chevalier FSG-2060 Automatic Precision Surface Grinder allows control over the quality of ground blanks and customers’ delivery schedule.
