Comprehensive product range for power transmission drives

Leading supplier Bearings International (BI) offers one of the most comprehensive power transmission drive product ranges available in the local market.

In terms of its extensive product offering for power transmission drives, BI represents a host of agencies, points out product manager Brian Tillie. These include vee and wedge belts from Opti and Continental, ventilated turbo pulleys from Birn Germany, taper bushes from RCO, industrial power tools from Makita, chain and anti-vibration units as well as specialised hosing from Contitech.

“While we target all market segments, we focus mainly on mining, heavy industrial, timber and food and beverage,” Tillie highlights. He adds that the main benefit of the brands represented by BI is cost-savings and reduced downtime.

“These are all top-quality niche products manufactured by international market leaders. In terms of installation and aftermarket support, we are able to offer correct drive designs, training, technical bulletin back-ups and even laser alignment of drives,” Tillie explains.

BI, part of the Hudaco Group, has consolidated its position as a leading distributor of bearings and power transmission products in Southern Africa by launching a new brand identity at the end of last year.

“Our aim is to become a proactive company providing excellent service to our customers to ensure we are the preferred supplier. We strongly believe we should rather compete on value, providing advanced, industry-specific solutions and services, and thus safeguard industry sustainability,” Burtie Roberts, CEO of BI, elaborates.
