Domestically, the economic recession has forced a number of changes for the company. In 2012 Gates closed a fluid power manufacturing facility in Charleston, Missouri due to a sluggish economic climate and competitive pressures. Throughout 2012, the company was also forced to reduce its workforce in its Denver headquarters to allow for more financial flexibility.
Tompkins acquired Gates for $1.1 billion in 1996. The purchase, which scored the largest non-tire rubber company in the world, ended 85 years of ownership by the Gates family. – less
