The Radicon name is a symbol of true engineering innovation. Over the years the Radicon business has operated or been associated with a number of brands.

  • Benzlers
  • Elecon
  • Textron Power Transmission

In November 2010, Radicon along with sister company Benzlers were sold by David Brown Gear Systems to Elecon engineering, Asia’s largest and fastest growing gear manufacturer. Radicon is no longer a part of David Brown, and the names David Brown and Radicon are no longer associated, but the products and people who worked for David Brown Radicon all transferred over to Radicon in November 2010.
