Gleason Works India
commemorated its 25th year of operations on 6 November 2021. The company was founded on 1 April 1996 as a wholly-owned subsidiary to provide sales, service and local manufacturing capabilities within the Indian market.
The start of operations was formally dedicated on 6 November 1996 by the former president of Gleason Corp — James S Gleason. Over the years, Gleason Work India’s product programme has been extended to include a wide range of bevel and cylindrical gear tooling products, gear machine production, and machine remanufacturing.
A significant milestone was achieved in 2017 with the completion and inauguration of a modern, 65,000ft2 factory that included tool manufacturing, services and machine assembly. With its own solar panel roof installation, the plant produces more than 70% of its daily energy requirements, thus helping it achieve LEED certification in 2018.
The new facility puts design, manufacturing and testing under one roof, giving Gleason India a ‘self-sufficient operation to help meet domestic and global demand’ for Gleason products, such as the 200SVP gear-shaving machine and customer-specific tooling solutions.
John J Perrotti, Gleason Corp’s president and CEO, said: “Gleason Works India is today considered one of India’s most modern and productive sources for a wide array of gear-manufacturing solutions. Congratulations to the Gleason Works India team for this great achievement and we look forward to further growth and success together.”
