Corporate development

„creating a world of bearing solutions“


We’re all about storage, from just a few millimeters in size to the giants that absorb huge loads. We meet many applications and challenges with a wealth of experience, a lot of know-how, a wide range of standard products and the ability to transfer individual requirements into functioning applications.
