I’ve just returned from a week of site visits to our customers; a part of my position that I really enjoy. As I was traveling, it occurred to me that we are fortunate to work with manufacturers who represent over 70 industries. While TriStar has delivered bearing solutions for over three decades, there is one question that is still posed to us:
"How do I choose a bearing manufacturer?"
We realize that there is not a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to bearing suppliers. And that there are a number of issues to consider; such as manufacturing materials, price point, delivery schedules, location and other value-added services.
However, there are a number of questions you should be asking any potential bearing manufacturer.
