PHILADELPHIA GEAR OFFERS GENUINE WESTERN GEAR,
WESTECH RENEWAL PARTS
Parts, technical drawings available for maintenance
and repair needs
February 19, 2003 (Norristown, PA) - Philadelphia
Gear Corporation, a full-service provider of gearing and power transmission
solutions, announces the availability of genuine renewal parts for
Western Gear and WesTech gearing units.
Philadelphia Gear purchased the Western Gear and WesTech
brands in 1996, and is the only proprietary source for genuine Western
and WesTech parts. Western and WesTech gearing units are widely
in use across the U.S., and can be found in virtually all heavy
industrial and manufacturing applications.
"While many professionals are aware that
Western Gear and WesTech
are no longer in business, a large
number of them are unaware that Philadelphia Gear owns the
Western Gear and WesTech brands - including all renewal parts,"
comments Carl Rapp, President and CEO of Philadelphia Gear
Corp. "Maintenance engineers -particularly those in the
West Coast and Gulf Coast regions - can now have their Western
Gear and WesTech units serviced using genuine parts, instead
of relying on re-engineered parts."
Philadelphia Gear is also the only source for
original drawings of Western and WesTech gearing units, allowing
Philadelphia Gear engineers to better service and maintain
Western and WesTech units. Digitally scanned versions of these
drawings and bills of material will be available at each of
Philadelphia Gear's five regional service centers by the end
The inclusion of Western Gear and WesTech proprietary
drawings represents an addition of over one million documents
to Philadelphia Gear's already vast web-based library of electronic
files. For more information on Western Gear and WesTech renewal
