About RBC Bearings Incorporated
RBC Bearings Incorporated – Corporate Overview
Founded in 1919, RBC Bearings Incorporated is an international manufacturer and marketer of highly engineered precision bearings and products, which are integral to the manufacture and operation of most machines, aircraft, and mechanical systems, in order to reduce wear on moving parts, facilitate proper power transmission, reduce damage and energy loss caused by friction, and control pressure and flow. While RBC Bearings manufactures products in all major categories, RBC Bearings focuses primarily on highly technical or regulated bearings and engineered products for specialized markets that require sophisticated design, testing, and manufacturing capabilities. We believe our unique expertise has enabled us to garner leading positions in many of the product markets in which we primarily compete. Over the past twenty-five years, we have broadened our end markets, products, customer base and geographic reach. We currently have 42 facilities of which 33 are manufacturing facilities in five countries, with a global network of sales engineers, distributors, and authorized agents.
RBC Bearings has a long and impressive history of quality craftsmanship and innovation in bearing technology – one that has been highlighted by hundreds of patents for creative engineering designs. In August 2005, RBC Bearings became a public company (NYSE: RBC), and has grown steadily through strategic planning driving organic growth and through a solid track record of acquisitions.
Since the early nineties, these acquisitions have continued to expand the breadth of an extensive product line of bearings and engineered products that provide solutions for global industrial, aerospace, and defense applications.
