brotherBrother Gearmotors, a division of Brother International Corporation that offers a wide range of ultra-reliable, sub-fractional AC gearmotors and reducers for the packaging, food & beverage and unit handling industries, will showcase several new benefits for customers in North America at PACK EXPO Booth #7020. Brother will be touting new bore sizes that open up a broader potential customer base for the company's gearmotors, which are manufactured on state-of-the-art machinery.

 In addition, this summer Brother Gearmotors moved into a new world-class manufacturing facility, based in Bartlett, Tennessee. The modernized assembling facility -both ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2001 certified - allows Brother Gearmotors to shrink lead times for customer orders to an estimated three days. On-site technology also makes available a broader product mix to North American customers, including 16 different gear ratios and six voltage options. The facility will be a North American complement to the primary gearmotor factory, which has produced more than 10 million units over its 40-year history.
