Brewer Machine & Gear joins IDC Marketplace

Brewer Machine & Gear Co. and IDC-USA announced a partnership that will bring a custom product selection to IDC Owner-Distributors via IDC Marketplace.

“Brewer is excited to be part of the IDC Marketplace. It's second-to-none in our industry, enabling independent distributors to service their customers in an efficient and cost-effective manner,” said Brian Kolman, president of Brewer Machine & Gear Co.

Known as the “original” line of universal tensioners, idlers and positioners, Brewer Machine & Gear Co. was the first to establish a standard line of tensioners. Founded in 1944, Brewer stocks a wide variety of standard gear and sprockets and manufactures custom units—spurs, helicals, miters, bevels, worms, worm gears, timing pulleys and sprockets— to a customer’s specifications.

IDC-USA’s top priorities of 2018 include adding new IDC Preferred Supplier programs to IDC Marketplace that bring more benefits to IDC-USA members.

“We are constantly trying to improve our value proposition to both members and suppliers, and IDC Marketplace is the cornerstone of this effort,” said George Graham, president and CEO of IDC-USA. “We prioritize seeking out new supplier programs in order to add value and continuously offer more options for the independent distributor.”

“By bringing Brewer Machine & Gear Co. to IDC Marketplace, IDC Owner Distributors are able to order a wider selection of custom units tailored to their individual needs,” said Bob Boyle, executive vice president of IDC-USA. “Brewer Machine & Gear Co. is another partnership we have embraced that adds competitive selection to IDC Marketplace.”
