Welcome to Terrell Machine Company

Founded in 1917 to design and market textile machinery, the Terrell Machine Company by 1925 had become an industry leader. Expansion quickly followed within our current home in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Industrial Products Division was formed in 1962 to help meet the demand for reliable gear drive products for many diverse markets. This division grew rapidly into its own entity named Terrell Gear Drives.

With over 115,000 square feet of space devoted to the design and manufacture of our gear drive products, our major asset is our people.

At Terrell our philosophy has been and always will be that to sustain a vibrant company, the ideas of each employee must be respected. Only through encouraging employee response can we continue our reputation for integrity, craftsmanship and customer server.
