Since 1903 Carlyle Johnson has delivered innovative power transmission products. With a dedication to excellence and a focus on engineering we have earned a position as an industry leader – providing clutches, brakes and power transmission products for even the most critical applications.
Our spirit of innovation is driven by an experienced leadership team – almost all of whom are engineers. The entire company works to maintain excellence and foster invention, and we are dedicated to the values that define our success:
The power of innovation. Our engineering team designs custom solutions for non-standard applications, often integrating our parts into larger systems.
Industry-leading products. We are always inventing. One of our newest products, the MAXITORQ® MTL TORQ-LOK® bi-directional clutch, transmits torque from the input shaft to the output shaft in either direction, without backdrive. This patented design uniquely sustains torque overload and shock loading.
Solutions for the toughest challenges. We continually look for new ideas and unique solutions to meet our customers’ requirements. In fact, competitors often refer customers to us – we solve the problems others cannot.
Dedicated to service and support. CJM assigns an engineer to every order. From sales and design to production and maintenance, each Carlyle Johnson part is worked on by the industry’s very best.
Performance and lifespan. Our parts are designed to perform at their best for the longest lifespan possible. It’s not unusual for us to service products that we originally produced more than 50 years ago.
From standard products to custom designs to complete system integration – Carlyle Johnson is dedicated to excellence.
For over a century Carlyle Johnson has earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading brake and clutch manufacturers. We have sold over one million parts, and the average service life of our components is greater than 15 years. Customers rely on our products to provide dependable performance even with rigorous, long-term use.
From deep space to the ocean floor, and from the battlefield to the Tour de France – when you see advanced engineering achievements in power transmission, you see Carlyle Johnson
