Forest City Gear adds to process engineering resources


Forest City Gear has added Brian Gustafson to its growing team of process engineers, with responsibility for creating the routings, machine instructions, and process drawings that are critical to the success of every precision gear-manufacturing project.

Gustafson has 15 years of diversified design and manufacturing engineering experience, ranging from CNC machining and programming to overseeing the shop floor operations of a gear production facility. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in manufacturing engineering technology from Bradley University.

Gustafson’s extensive manufacturing background made him an ideal candidate for the position, said Forest City Gear President Wendy Young.

“His deep understanding of gear manufacturing processes gives him special insight into the needs our customers. He will be an important asset to help ensure that projects flow efficiently from order entry, to scheduling, to shop floor production.”

For more than 60 years, Roscoe, Illinois, based, family-owned Forest City Gear has been one of the gear industry’s leading sources for the development, manufacture, and inspection of the highest quality gears for use in applications that range from medical devices to motorcycles, airplanes to automation, even including the Mars Curiosity Rover.
