The West Trenton facility shown was built in 1950 has been the home of many RBC innovations. In that 70-year period, RBC has been the leader in the development of spherical plain bearings, and is the original patent holder on many innovative designs of that product. The RBC West Trenton facility produces spherical bearings with a size range from 4 inch to a maximum of 24 inch outer diameter. The spherical plain bearing products produced at this facility service the mining, construction, oil & gas, material handling, and agricultural markets.

RBC West Trenton is also the current home of the RBC Nice Ball Bearings product. The Nice Ball Bearing Company was originally founded in Philadelphia in 1902. RBC Bearings relocated Nice Bearing to the West Trenton facility from Kulpsville, Pennsylvania in 2006. The Nice line of ball bearings serves many industries including material handling, packaging equipment, agricultural, and aluminum beverage can production.
