Learn more about our history below

Bearing Corporation was originally founded in 1997, our initial premises was located in Doornfontein, Johannesburg, South Africa.


The founding member of Bearing Corporations’, first introduction to the bearing industry began at the buoyant age of 16, where he was employed by FAG Kugellager Group. It was whilst working here, he acquired extensive knowledge and skills pertaining to the bearing industry.


He was able to assess the bearing industry, its market and the needs and wants of its customers. Based on this assessment, he was able to identify a gap in the market, where it was recognised that customers preferred having a variety of quality bearings to choose from, that were also readily available at any given time, at the most competitive pricing. This gave birth to the notion of Bearing Corporation stocking a variety of premium authentic brands, at the most competitive prices, readily available to our customers at any given time, thereby reducing waiting periods by providing convenience and faster turnaround times.


It can be ascertained that today, “Bearing Corporation is the Number 1 stockists of bearings in South Africa”. Our current stock availability, various brands offered, as well as our excellent service levels and competitive pricing can attest to this.


He envisioned a company that would grow to extraordinaire levels and to achieve exponential growth, both in terms of company size as well as stock holding. Through this progressive approach, and unequivocal determination, hard work and unwavering commitment of both himself as well as the driving force behind Bearing Corporation, its valuable staff, this has successfully, been achieved.


As a result of the rapid growth of Bearing Corporation through the years, the company had to relocate to a larger warehouse and bigger premises in Edenvale, Johannesburg, South Africa. This was just the beginning of many new adventures…


At Bearing Corporation, we will always strive to do better, and do more to enhance our customer service levels. We hope to grow and to increase our reach, not only in South Africa, but also leave a foot print world-wide too.
