Onsite Technical Services Will Dramatically Reduce Downtime


KING OF PRUSSIA, PA, September 29, 2006 – Philadelphia Gear announces its new Onsite Technical Services (OTS) group, available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. As a complete onsite solution to gearbox related issues, OTS allows U.S. consumers to significantly cut downtime caused by gear and transmission repairs. Removal, reinstallation, in-place machining, onsite overhauls, alignment, oil analysis and many other power transmission maintenance services are offered.


“It only takes one call to 800-766-5120, for Philadelphia Gear to begin the evaluation process, dispatch a technician from one of five regional service centers, or schedule a ‘job walk’ in order to thoroughly understand the scope of the project and, most importantly, propose a solution,” said Chuck Zirkle, Manager for the OTS program.

Additionally, since Philadelphia Gear was the OEM for many of the critical gear applications used today across a wide variety of industries, the company is in the unique position to supply OEM parts, then install them to bring decades old gearboxes into “as new” condition. Regardless of the scope of any project, Philadelphia Gear’s service technicians will provide hands on support throughout the process.


“OTS enables customers to stay focused on their business, while we seamlessly handle the repair with a ‘one-stop-shop’ philosophy,” said Gerry Matteson, Philadelphia Gear General Manager. “We also provide our customers with greater piece of mind because we’ve combined 114 years of experience with the most current technology. By digitizing more than 3,000,000 pages of proprietary technical documents, we now have instant access to critical information from anywhere in the world with just a few keystrokes.”


For more information about OTS and its benefits, contact a Philadelphia Gear Representative.


A founding member of the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA), Philadelphia Gear offers products and services found in use worldwide; from conveyor gear drives used in long wall coal mining operations, to emergency repair services critical to the power generation industries. The company serves thousands of customers across the globe from its regional service and manufacturing facilities in New Castle, DE; Birmingham, AL; Chicago, IL; Houston, TX; and Los Angeles, CA. Philadelphia Gear is headquartered in King of Prussia, PA.
