Midland Bearings’ Direct Contribution to UK Manufacturing Success

The small but mighty bearing is an integral component in a wide range of machinery. For nearly four decades, one company has played a pivotal role in the UK’s manufacturing landscape as one of the largest importers and wholesalers of bearings.

Established in 1984, Midland Bearings supplies industries across the UK with all their bearing needs. With a staggering stockpile exceeding twenty million units, their diverse range of products encompasses Chinese, Japanese, and Western European branded bearings. These items serve as the backbone for various sectors, catering not just to the bearing trade but also to original equipment manufacturers throughout the UK and countries across Western Europe.

Located in the West Midlands, their 100,000-square-foot warehouse is strategically positioned, acting as a central hub for the easy facilitation of ‘same-day’ distribution. As such, Midland Bearings can consistently ensure swift and efficient delivery both across the UK and worldwide.

Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Bearings, says, “Over the last 40 years, we’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as a trusted and reliable supplier of bearings to our clients across the UK. Collectively, our sales team boast a combined experience in the bearing industry of more than 200 years, which means they’re able to provide expert insights beyond just product sales”.

The company’s inventory isn’t just extensive; it’s also wide-reaching. From miniature bearings to thrust bearings, agricultural bearings to plumber blocks, Midland Bearings stocks an array of products. Some of these ranges are the most comprehensive in the country. Their stocked items also include INA, RHP, SKF branded products, and possibly the largest stock of Budget Bearings in the UK.

A combination of the company’s impressive stocks and the team’s industry expertise positions Midland Bearings as an indispensable partner in the manufacturing industry across the UK and Western Europe.
