Milestone Gears was started in 1984, by technocrat Mr. Ashok Tandon who has a masters degree in engineering and administration from USA.

In 70’s and early 80’s, the manufacturing process for rear axles commonly involved hardening and tempering operations. Such processes were not only expensive, but often left the axle vulnerable to performance and fatigue failures. The company was incepted to address such problem of high cost and low performance of rear axles.

In late 80’s, the company pioneered introduction of induction hardening technology for component development in India, which resulted in several OEMs making a switch from toughening to induction hardening of rear axles.

The company has since led the technology curve. Today, it manufactures over 350 + auto components and caters to 20 + major OEMs in 9 global geographies. It has the unique distinction of zero ppm defects with its export customers and has carved a market leadership position for itself in manufacturing of rear axles, transmission gears & shafts, and planetary drive components for automotive use.


To lead the Indian industry in manufacturing of transmission component and sub-assemblies with 25 % of revenue coming from exports.


To achieve customer’s delight by delivering world class quality products using cutting edge technologies and deploying best manufacturing practices.
