TB Wood's Incorporated was founded in 1857 and began as a foundry producing wood burning stoves. Our company's tradition of product innovation started early -- Wood's entered the power transmission industry at the turn of the century with the introduction of flat belted drives and line shafting.

Since the introduction of V-belt drive systems in the 1930's, Wood's has been a leading innovator in belted drives. In 1945, Wood's introduced the quick detachable ("QD") Bushing system. In the early 1950's the company introduced variable speed pulleys and synchronous timing belt drive systems. In 1957, Wood's developed and patented its Sure-Flex® couplings and captured a significant segment of the elastomeric coupling market.

In 1968, Wood's entered the Electronic motor controls business with the introduction of DC controls specifically designed for harsh manufacturing environments. In the 70's, Wood's, in an alliance with Uniroyal, began manufacturing and marketing high torque drives and synchronous belted drive systems which replaced a substantial number of chain sprocket systems. Wood's further strengthened its position in the electronic controls business in 1984 when it began marketing AC inverters.
