In January 2006 Hindle formed a wholly owned subsidiary company based in China. The vision behind the new business was to be able to supply raw material or proof machined blanks, to supply part or finished products back to our own UK factory and to be able to supply fully machined products both in this country and in China.

Hindle China can manufacture spur & helical gears/shafts up to 400mm and ISO 1328 Grade 5.

Hindle Gears UK currently gains significant cost savings by bringing part machined blanks in from China for finish or speciality machining in the UK. Hindle Gears China Ltd is able to cost effectively manufacture and supply gears and transmission parts direct to all parts of the globe.
