Gearbox Express (GBX) celebrated the official grand opening of their new 75,000 square-foot facility in Mukwonago on May 3rd. CEO Bruce Neumiller and the GBX team hosted more than 150 state and local public officials, customers, key suppliers, and industry leaders, including Precision Plus President Mike Reader. GBX is the number one rebuilder of wind turbine gearboxes, and this new climate-controlled facility holds five assembly bays containing five 30-ton cranes, one 60-ton crane, and 15 three-ton jib cranes.
Reader noted, “The facility is most impressive, the work that they do overhauling huge gearboxes for the wind turbines even more so.” GBX launched just four short years ago, and Reader appreciates a manufacturer that, “continues to innovate and create rewarding career opportunities for the community.”
When GBX was a startup in 2012, they saw a desperate need in the wind industry, and they have now become the only North American company that is focused on providing independent, down-tower, wind gearbox-remanufacturing services.
