Celebrating 25 Years of BDL!

Since Bearings and Drives Limited was established in 1998, we have surpassed several trading milestones as we now celebrate our Silver Anniversary.

In the last 25 years, BDL has supplied over 10 million maintenance, repair and operational (MRO) products to our far-reaching client base which includes food & drink, household goods, pharmaceutical, chemical and electrical motor manufacturers.

And we have supported over 1,000 clients with single source supply products, reducing operational downtime and improving production efficiency, creating considerable cost savings.

BDL’s Managing Director, William Simpson said: “Reviewing the stats, we are looking at an overwhelming amount of components that we have supplied to our clients, each one playing it’s part in ensuring our customers are fully operational and achieving maximum line efficiency.

“Everyone in the business is extremely proud of what we have achieved over the past 25 years. The cornerstone of Bearings and Drives has been, and continues to be, our 24/7 service managed by our skilled team who are on hand to deliver advice and engineering solutions to our industrial client base.

“We are now excited for the future and what’s to come following another major development this year in the form of securing the sole distributorship of industry leading CeramicSpeed Insulate ball bearings, considerably strengthening our offering further and introducing to the UK market, the latest technology in operational efficiency.  CeramicSpeed Insulate ball bearings are custom-made for electrical motors and a guarantee against damage caused by stray currents, and hence are becoming the preferred choice for many clients.”
