Bluefield Gear’s core business of general/CNC machining has always included spur and helical gear manufacturing as well as shafts/parts for electric motors. The company was purchased by a group
of investors in 2002. The focus was to manufacture
replacement parts as good as the OEM. They have invested in many pieces of CNC equipment to speed the process without loosing any of the quality. Having an in-house Heat Treat department will help maintain quality and turnaround time.
The new location in Brushfork has more than 150,000 sq. ft. of production space. It has one 25-ton crane, three
20-ton cranes, and many other smaller cranes. This
location is perfect for heavy manufacturing such as welding and fabricating.
Bluefield Gear’s sister company Industrial Plating in Princeton, WV,
utilizes the space as well. IPM’s core business is
new manufactures and repair of hydraulic cylinders, pumps and values. It has an in-house chroming facility and does complete equipment rebuilds. The companies employee more
than 100 people.
