Avon Gear Company was founded in 1974. The company started in a 10,000 ft² facility located in Rochester, Michigan. As the business grew during the 1980's, so did the need for larger facilities. As a result, Avon Gear purchased an additional 20,000 ft² of adjacent manufacturing space. In 1996, Avon Gear Company was acquired by Okubo Gear of Japan, (www.Okubo-Gear.co.jp), and relocated to a new 60,000 ft² modern facility located in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
In 2008, Avon Gear moved to its current 110,000 ft² facility in Shelby Twp. and David Share was promoted to President. We employ a corporate policy that allows us to invest in the newest, most sophisticated CNC equipment available in the marketplace. To successfully compete in today’s challenging economy with rising material and energy costs, we have formed strategic partnerships with domestic and international companies to ensure that all our customers’ needs are met. This combination ensures our global competitiveness.
Avon Gear is also an active member of the local community: sponsoring, and donating to various charity events each year.
