Ronson Gears  has been appointed sole Australian agent for KHK Co Japan, one of the world’s leading stock gear suppliers.  

Ronson Gears manufactures custom gears for the aeronautical, defence, medical, mining, rail, construction and transport industries. 

Key outcomes from the partnership include:

  • Gear configurations increase from 250 to 7000
  • Faster delivery times for customers
  • Competitively priced gears

According to Gordon New, Managing Director at Ronson Gears, the KHK partnership enables their customers to access a much wider range of gears at faster turnaround times than previously possible.

Mr New says that customers will be able to order the more popular line items for next day delivery with virtually the full range being accessible for delivery within a week depending on the size of the order.

Mr New sees the partnership as a significant step in Ronson Gears’ growth. 

KHK Co Japan has been in business since 1919 and, like Ronson Gears is a family business that has built its reputation on supplying quality gears.  

KHK’s Export Manager, Naoji Kohara says the arrangement with Ronson Gears will expand KHK’s market into a key Asia Pacific region.

Some of the stock items now available to customers include ground spurs and helicals, spiral bevel gears, straight cut mitre and bevel gears, ground racks, helical racks, worms and worm wheels, bevel gear boxes as well as plastic gears.
