Machine Company was
founded in 1946 with a lathe, milling machine, and
welder in a 20 x 30, foot chicken house behind
the Curtis home in Dodge City, Kansas. One of the first jobs contracted for was
the manufacturing of a gearbox. Curtis Machine’s design of “straddle
mounting” the bearings results in a smaller and symmetrical gearbox with more
torque carrying capacity than competitors.
Curtis Machine Company now dedicates 56,000 square feet exclusively to gear, gearbox, and precision machined parts production. Curtis Machine Company also produces parallel shaft gearboxes with spur or helical gearing. Straight bevel, spiral bevel, right angle, and off-angle gearboxes are common projects. These units are used in hundreds of applications including: military equipment, transportation, material handling, vehicle steering featuring low rolling torque and compactness, fan drives, pump drives, petroleum industry, and food processing.
Curtis Machine Company is a certified woman owned small business (WOSB).
Curtis Machine Company is one of the most progressive manufacturing companies in the Midwest with state of the art machine tools and CMM testing equipment. Curtis Machine Company is proud to be ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D Quality Certified.
