Dana opened the doors to a nearly 32,000 square-foot facility in Slidell, Louisiana, for the repair, service, and assembly of industrial gearboxes, including the ability to custom-make gears up to 6.5 feet.
Located in the Fremaux Park development, the new facility replaces the company’s current operations in Slidell, offering a larger footprint to meet the growing demand for industrial gearbox service, repair, and refurbishment. We have also invested in gear grinding and hobbing equipment and skilled personnel to increase the ability to quickly turn-around gearboxes for customers.
“The additional square footage in this new facility combined with the increased ability to rapidly make gears gives Dana the capacity we need to further support our industrial gearbox customers who come to us for custom, highly engineered solutions,” said Aziz Aghili, president of Dana’s Off-Highway Drive and Motion Technologies. “Dana’s service and assembly centers provide critical support for our global customers throughout the lifecycle of their machinery, whether they’re building something completely new for a one-off application or maintaining current equipment to ensure maximum performance and uptime.”
With the expanded capabilities in this facility, Dana in Slidell now offers customized open-gearing solutions for multiple applications, as well as drop-in replacements gearing and full assemblies for obsolete units.
