Bearings Limited Puts Independent Distributors First with IDC-USA
Bearings Limited has provided, through distribution, a full line of bearings and power transmission products for over 70 years. With a full product range offering including mounted units, ball bearings, and chain and sprockets, Bearings Limited has evolved from a surplus supplier to focusing only on factory-fresh, brand-new product in a superior package.
Bearings Limited focuses on the independent distributor and does not sell directly to end-users or OEMs. This prioritization of independent distributors naturally aligns Bearings Limited as an ideal IDC Preferred Supplier on IDC Marketplace. With the addition of this program, IDC Owner-Distributors will gain access to Bearings Limited’s vast product line with the streamlined purchasing process IDC Marketplace offers.
Brian Harpur, vice president of sales of Bearings Limited, expands on their commitment to supporting independent distributors: “The Independent Distributor is our marketing arm to the end-user. Bearings Limited does not sell direct to end-users or OEMs and offers full support from sales, engineering, logistics and other value-added services to keep the independent distributor viable in the marketplace.”
“Adding Bearings Limited’s product offering to IDC Marketplace will bring convenience and a wider selection to our members,” stated Bob Boyle, executive vice president of IDC-USA. “We are confident that Bearings Limited’s proven support of independent distributors will bring success to this partnership.”
George Graham, president and CEO of IDC-USA, sees this partnership with Bearings Limited as a natural step. “Many of our members already conduct business with Bearings Limited, so we are excited to give them the ability to consolidate purchasing on IDC Marketplace,” he explained. “With each new supplier program, we aim to bring strategic development to IDC-USA membership.”
