Forest City Gear

Solid Business

It’s always interesting to come across different businesses. There doesn’t seem anything more solid than manufacturing gears. Forest City Gears (FCG) located in Roscoe IL, just north of Rockford has been in business since 1955 (a solid business).

Their recent ad in NASA Tech Briefs used the headline:

Excellence without Exception – “Producing good gears is not good enough at Forest City Gear. We’re not satisfied until we know we’ve made the best gear possible” – Fred Young CEO.

Companies like Forest City Gear are the foundation of a strong manufacturing base.

FCG also gets 4 stars for an excellent contact page (and nice website) with all its key people….isn’t it just good business to know who you are dealing with?
