Manufacturing Today

At a time when many of its competitors and manufacturing peers have needed to resort to staff and inventory cuts as well as outsourcing to maintain their bottom lines, STOBER Drives is taking the opposite approach.

“We're investing in customer support, technical support and providing quick delivery to our customers,” says Peter Feil, vice president of the Maysville, Ky.-based manufacturer. “We plan to continue investing in the company and improving our ability to serve and provide superior products as opposed to reducing our capacity and hindering our ability to serve.”

STOBER Drives manufactures motion control gear heads and power transmission gear systems used in automation and other factory processes. “We provide products for anything that moves in a factory – any machine, conveyor or process that requires something to move we can provide gearing for,” Feil adds. “Our focus is on making products that are precise, durable and reliable.”
