Lufkin & Allen Gears Logos

We are Lufkin Gears and Allen Gears, Baker Hughes businesses.
We provide reliable power transmission technologies and services to solve the unique needs of every application across industry segments.





Our gearboxes transmit power from engines, servos, motors, turbines, and compressors in mechanical drive, turbo, industrial, and marine propulsion applications around the world. Our products and services are known for dependability and high performance, boosting uptime, and improving reliability while driving down maintenance costs.

Our engineers collaborate with customers to create solutions for the most demanding power transmission applications for rotating equipment. We draw on advanced materials, technologies, and manufacturing processes, to meet any challenge. Our portfolio includes high-speed parallel shaft, inline, helical, bevel, right-angle, epicyclic and integrally geared [LF2] configurations. 

We're committed to providing high-quality equipment with competitive costs and delivery times. With 24/7 global support, our certified experts are ready to deliver unmatched service—whenever and wherever it's needed. In addition to servicing our own Lufkin Gears, Allen Gears, and Baker Hughes industrial gear products, we continue providing the same high level of service we always have for products from over 30 other manufacturers.

Serving the Americas and beyond

Lufkin, Texas

Our flagship technologies were developed here nearly a century ago. Today, Lufkin designs and manufactures new units, and it hosts our Center of Excellence for repair, remanufacturing, and services—including drop-in replacements and upgrades for all power transmission needs.

Manufacturing and service

Fougerolles, France

This advanced facility has been manufacturing high-speed and low-speed gears as well as couplings since 1965. The site also provides global design support, and repair services to customers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. We recently expanded its capabilities to manufacture our Allen Gears epicyclic gearboxes, and added machining capabilities and test stands, including one with a 2.5 MW driver.
