THE MOST IMPRESSIVE THING WE’VE BUILT OVER THE YEARS?
Success is not a destination. It’s a culture. A way of doing business. And an expectation you have for the companies you work with.
We take great pride in our commitment to your ongoing success. Living up to our corporate Vision Statement which promises “Long-term success for our customers, people, suppliers, and Hydro-Gear.”
And that success is achieved through strong and lasting relationships with both our customers and our employees.
We are very proud to have become the world leader we are today. But we didn’t get here by resting on past successes. We are always looking toward to future and that means continuous innovation in our products, our processes, and our protection of the environment.

A BRIEF HISTORY.
For over 30 years, Hydro-Gear’s goal has been to provide products and services that meet our customers' rigorous requirements and exceed their expectations. The company is headquartered in Sullivan, IL, and operates four manufacturing facilities, with offices around the world.
How’d we get here? Here’s the short version:
- Danfoss (Ames, IA) produced a hydraulic transmission for OEMs.
- Agri-Fab (Sullivan, IL) produced an axle assembly for OEMs.
- OEMs would pair them together.
- 1991 - Hydro-Gear was founded as a joint venture to create and manufacture transmission and axle combinations before supplying the OEM.
- The rest is history.
Today, Hydro-Gear is a world leader in the design and production of precision drive solutions, serving multiple industries and exporting products worldwide.
