The Company

Our Proud History

Our journey began in 1981, when we operated from a warehouse so small that it’s contents had to be unpacked onto the car park every morning before production could begin. Through innovation and investing in the latest technology and machinery, we have grown to be a leading supplier of all types of bearing housing throughout the world.
