Forest City Gear earns certification


Forest City Gear has successfully met the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council’s standards for certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise.

WBENC National WBE Certification validates that the business is owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. To achieve WBE Certification, women-owned businesses complete a rigorous documentation and site visit process. WBE Certification is an important accreditation recognized by hundreds of WBENC corporate members and government agencies, including most major U.S. corporations and federal, state, and local government entities.

“Supplier diversity is an increasingly important aspect of the procurement process that Forest City Gear is involved with in the industries we serve, and the WBE Certification gives us critical recognition,” said Forest City Gear President and CEO Wendy Young.

Since 1955, 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 including medical devices, motorcycles, airplanes, automation, and even the Mars Curiosity Rover.
