    As we are closing in on the end of another year, I would like to wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday!  Throughout the past 6 months I have visited numerous branches throughout the Midwest to introduce myself and Rj Link’s capabilities.  We have found that there is a niche that Rj Link is filling as another solution for your customers.


    As you are speaking with customers, and visiting their plants, don’t forget to keep your eyes open for opportunities that might require a custom gearbox solution that is not available off the shelf.  What to look for:

    • Drop-in replacement is needed – supplier no longer offers current gearbox
    • Problems with existing gearbox-a better solution is needed for the application
    • New design opportunities
    • Gearbox rebuild/repairs


    This year Rj Link has worked with quite a few branches on new design & rebuild opportunities, and most recently completed a rebuild project on a 35 year old gearbox that required reverse engineering. The rebuilt gearbox proved to be a far better solution for the customer than having to replace their entire machine.


    As you know, the world of sales is always changing.  Staying ahead of the game, and finding ways to work together to create more opportuntiies and solutions for customers can benefit all of us. Amazon has become a huge player in the distribution world.  Differentiate yourself by thinking outside the box and looking for solutions to problems that you might not have entertained in the past.  Rj Link’s engineering team has a combined 75+ years of experience in the Power Transmission Market.  Please do not hesitate to contact us regarding any potential custom gearbox opportunities.
