Increase Performance by 57%

Since more than 60% of bearings fail prematurely, you need a fast replacement every time.

Our expertise – and our in-house technical specialists – means we won’t just identify the failure. We isolate the cause, propose the solution and, if necessary we can also design and install special solutions.


We supply as wide a range of rotary bearing types as you can imagine.  From plain bearings to rolling element bearings they are all in our stocked ranges backed up with our impartial technical support.


We have a deep knowledge and understanding of linear bearings and their application born out of many years experience with all types and sizes of linear motion products. 


Our dedicated Lubrication Engineers, substantial stocks of the leading industrial lubricant brands and national network of Service Centres, provide you with the knowledge you need to choose the right lubricant, the right lubrication regime and the right dispensing method.

Milking the benefits with value-added Bearings from ERIKS & NSK

Enduring repeated bearing failures on your critical assets will have a significant impact on your productivity as well as increasing the stress on your maintenance teams to get production up and running quickly. 

Triple your bearing life and double your protection with NSK

In an operating environment full of potential bearing contaminants, single-seal bearings don't last long. 

Standard bearings use just one sealing lip on either side of the bearing, fixed in the outer ring. NSK's Self-Lube® bearings with triple-lip seals have three sealing lips on each side - making it three times harder for any contamination to enter the bearing and cause wear.

And that's not all... NSK Self-Lube® bearings have protection built in.

The Self-Lube® Protector has two 'claws' which locate through the casting loading slots into the groove in in insert's outer ring, locking the protector in place. By covering the shaft end, the Self-Lube® Protector removes the health and safety risk posed by a rotating shaft.
