Gearmatic began as a manufacturer of power transmissions in late 1946 in Vancouver, B.C. After the merger of BRADEN, CARCO, and Gearmatic in 1983, it was relocated to BRADEN’s manufacturing facility in Broken Arrow, OK. The move resulted in the industry’s most dynamic and flexible manufacturer.
Planetary gear train designs have been a central feature since first pioneered by Gearmatic. Over years of service, Gearmatic units have always been the ‘Swiss watch’ of winches.
