Gear and Axle Co

Eaton Corporation was founded in 1911 as Gear and Axle Co. in Bloomfield, New Jersey. Initially, the company focused on developing a new axle for trucks and buses, which offered significant improvements over existing products. During the 1930s and 1940s, Eaton diversified into other industries, such as aviation and defense, reflecting the broader economic and industrial shifts of the time. This diversification continued post-World War II, as the company expanded its product offerings and global presence. The 1960s and 1970s marked further expansion, with Eaton entering the hydraulics market and furthering its international reach. In the following decades, Eaton continued to grow through acquisitions, significantly expanding its electrical power management business.
