ABOUT UMC Your Partner, from the Factory to the Field

Learning from the Past, Shaping the Future

Universal Motion Components® got its start in Southern California in 1978, ultimately laying down roots at its Costa Mesa headquarters in 2003. Today, UMC® has operations in the United States, China, South Korea, Taiwan and France. UMC® products are used on 95% of all center pivots, in more than 90 countries. Designing, developing, manufacturing and distributing center pivot drivetrains and related components is what we do. It’s in our DNA. We offer a diverse mix of products that are ready to ship, any time, anywhere for our customers.

Every time a new product order comes in; every time we run a QC test and outperform our own expectations; every time we step out into the field, we’re reminded of the UMC® purpose. Deliver top-quality products and innovative solutions that help irrigate the world’s crops. Everything we do is centered on that one goal. For 40 years we’ve delivered on that goal time and again, being first to market with products designed to meet your specific needs, your specific growing conditions. Reliable products that last.

We’re not following industry best practices, we’re defining them and then redefining them to meet growing global demand for more efficient mechanized irrigation systems. Some say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” At UMC®, we say, “How can we make it better?” Better systems, better processes, better engineering, better testing, and better products. Products like the patented CX coupler and TNT gearbox. Products that are born from common sense. Sleeves rolled up, boots on the ground. That’s how we work.

We have taken great care over the past four decades to avoid layers and to avoid delays. We have an unwavering commitment to our customers—replace what breaks, take the time to understand why, design a fix and integrate that fix into the production line. It’s that simple.
