About Us

Who is Linn Gear Company?

We aren’t your typical manufacturing company. We’re a team of dedicated, down to earth people that care about the customer and their desires. From the bottom to the top, everyone here shares the same desire to provide the best craftsmanship and service in what we do.

When you call us, a real person answers the phone and puts you in touch with one of our customer service staff, who on average have over 35 years of experience in the industry. When you contact our team you’ll be working with people who are experts at their craft and will share that expertise generously in serving you.

To manufacture some of the finest products on the market, it takes a top notch manufacturing facility. Our plant is 155,000 square feet of floor space packed with machinery and equipment, raw materials and inventory all at one location, a manufacturing facility that’s been built and refined specifically for the task for almost 60 years. We’re big enough to get the job done, and done right, but not so big that you, the customer get lost in the shuffle.
