June 1, 2010 (King of Prussia, PA) – Philadelphia Gear Corporation, a full-service provider of gearing and power transmission solutions, has announced a new Best-In-Industry Five-Year Warranty program for new enclosed drives. Click here to see our new ad.


According to Philadelphia Gear CEO Carl Rapp, the new warranty program will cover all materials and workmanship for five years -- five times the industry standard of one year.  In addition, this warranty program will cover repaired and overhauled drives for three years and will apply to Philadelphia Gear’s Onsite Technical Services for an entire year from the date of project completion.


“Our unparalleled experience in manufacturing reliable equipment and our ability to successfully service some of the most challenging

gearboxes worldwide, has produced a warranty program that is above and beyond anything the industry has ever seen,” said Mr. Rapp. “Lengthening our warranty beyond the industry standard of one year for materials and workmanship no doubt gives our customers peace of mind,” Mr. Rapp continued.  “Further, it demonstrates emphatically, that as a leader, Philadelphia Gear stands behind the long-term performance and reliability of our work.”

A testament to the durability and reliability of Philadelphia Gear designed and manufactured equipment is evidenced by the fact that the U.S. Navy has Philadelphia brand gearboxes on over 96% of the ships in the current fleet – a relationship that had its beginnings during World War I.  “If there is a better example of our commitment to providing our customers with the best technology at the lowest possible lifecycle cost,” says Jules DeBaecke, Philadelphia Gear’s vice president of engineering “it’s hard to imagine what it might be.”
