BV Guides and Databases

Private Company Sales Transaction Databases
Free "Visitor Search" allows users to search the DealStats, BIZCOMPS, and FactSet/BVR databases for private company sales transaction data by SIC or NAICS Code using the following codes:
  SIC Code 3566 - Speed Changers, Industrial High-Speed Drives, and Gears Manufacturing
  NAICS Code 333612 - Speed Changer, Industrial High-Speed Drive, and Gear Manufacturing
Types of establishments included in these codes
Spur gear manufacturers - establishments that primarily produce spur gears, which are cylindrical gears with straight teeth parallel to the axis of rotation, commonly used in a wide range of applications, such as automotive transmissions and machinery.
Helical gear producers - establishments that specialize in manufacturing gears that have teeth that are cut at an angle to the axis of rotation, offering smoother and quieter operation than spur gears, and are often used in high-load and high-speed applications.
Bevel gear manufacturing - establishments that primarily produce bevel gears that have teeth that are cut on a conical surface and are used to transmit motion between intersecting shafts found in automotive differentials and power transmission systems.
Worm gear production - establishments that manufacture worm gears, which consist of a screw-shaped worm and a helical gear, used to transmit motion between non-intersecting shafts and provide a high reduction ratio with minimal space requirements.
Planetary gear manufacturers - establishments that manufacture systems that consist of a central gear surrounded by planet gears, and are often used in automatic transmissions, differentials, and industrial equipment due to their compact size and high torque capacity.
Gear assembly producers - establishments that focus on assembling complete  systems of gears and related equipment, integrating various types of gears, shafts, and housings into a functional unit for use in a wide range of applications.
Custom gear manufacturing - establishments that provide custom manufacturing services for gears, designing and producing gears and related components to meet the specific requirements of clients, often for specialized applications or unique equipment designs.
Gear grinding and finishing services - establishments that offer grinding and finishing services for gears, such as lapping, honing, and polishing, to enhance the performance, precision, and longevity of gears and related equipment.
