Here at Bearing Factory, we've carefully selected the brands which we offer. For the majority of items listed on our website you will be able to choose from a Premium Brand or our Great Value Brand.
Our preferred premium brand is SKF.
SKF has been a leading global technology provider since 1907. SKF's fundamental strength is the ability to continuously develop new technologies – then use them to create products that offer competitive advantages to our customers.
This is achieved by combining hands-on experience in over 40 industries with our knowledge across the SKF technology platforms: bearings and units, seals, mechatronics, services and lubrication systems.
The focus of SKF’s technology development today is to reduce the environmental impact of an asset during its lifecycle, both in our own and our customers’ operations.
However, in the rare cases where we are unable to offer an SKF product, we reserve the right to substitute for a product manufactured by the Schaeffler Group.
Schaeffler develops and manufactures precision products for everything that moves - in machines, equipment, and vehicles as well as in aviation and aerospace applications - with its INA, LuK, and FAG brands.
The globally active group of companies is a leading manufacturer of bearings worldwide and a renowned supplier to the automotive industry. The company generated sales of approximately 11.1 billion euros in 2012. With over 78,000 employees worldwide, Schaeffler is one of the largest German and European industrial companies in family ownership.
With 180 locations in over 50 countries, Schaeffler has a worldwide network of manufacturing locations, research and development facilities, sales companies, engineering offices, and training centers.
INA Bearing Company Ltd and FAG Sales Europe-UK have now joined forces under the new name of Schaeffler (UK) Ltd. With a total of 180 years of bearing experience and know-how, the two leading rolling bearing specialists can provide industry customers with innovative bearing solutions from a single source. The combined product range from INA and FAG offers top quality, innovative rolling bearing and linear motion technology for any application in any industry.
