Did You Know?
In business since 1995, Innovative Rack and Gear Co. has grown into a leader in custom gear rack manufacturing. Started by brothers Zen and Jerry, IRGCo has been consistently increasing its capabilities and size. Moving into the current facility in 2012, IRGCo has been able to expand its machining capabilities by purchasing more machines that allow hard cutting rack teeth up to 65 HRC and bringing surface grinding in-house to guarantee the tight tolerances that customers demand.

New Equipment and Machine Upgrades
IRGCo is always upgrading to optimize efficiency and to meet the demands of our customers. We recently upgraded some of our Haas machines so that the company may be better equipped for the quick turnarounds that our customers need.

In addition to the Haas upgrades, IRGCo purchased a new Wenzel CMM. The CMM has allowed us to provide extremely precise measurements to our customers and to fine tune our operations.
IRGCo Receives ISO 9001:2015 Certification
During the past year, IRGCo became ISO 9001:2015 certified. By doing so, the company has continued to increase efficiencies in many areas and has been able to take on new jobs that it may not have had the opportunity to in the past. Each and every employee is dedicated to the highest standard of quality, and our formal ISO 9001:2015 certification is proof of that commitment.
COVID-19 Update
During these unprecedented times, IRGCO has been designated an essential business and has remained fully operational to supply many of the essential parts that its customers need in medical, defense, automation, and other industries. The company has implemented many new guidelines that its employees follow so that everyone in the facility is safe and so that customers have no disruptions in their supply lines. IRGCo is closely monitoring the situation and appreciates its vendors that have also remained open and functioning during these times.
