Robust Gear was founded in, August, 1985 by Tarsem (‘Sem’) Tak in the town of Oakville, Ontario. We are a close-knit family business. In 2008, Sem’s son, Anjan, joined the business as General Manager after completing his education at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario and became President and General Manager after Tarsem's death in December, 2012. Our goal is to work closely with our customer through all stages of designing, material selection and manufacturing. Our customers are able to consult our team of professionals in the design of specific gearing requirements and heat treating processes. Our current customer base is representative of a variety of industries, many of whom operate in the global market. These include, but are not limited to:
From the initial consultation, through the engineering design process, and subsequent manufacturing, we will collaborate with your team to produce a high quality end product that meets your specific needs and requirements and is made to your complete satisfaction. We also have the expertise to provide reverse engineering services by redesigning and recreating damaged or excessively worn gears resulting in a replica of the original. We take great pride in maintaining a very high level of service which includes shipping customer orders on time, as well as, on budget.
In July 2017, we attained our ISO9001:2015 quality system and maintain the high engineering standard prescribed therein. Robust Gear was founded on the principle, “Quality gearing at quality pricing”. We are proud to state that we have remained true to this fundamental ethical value over the course of the last 30 years and more.
