About Bearing Distributors

Bearing Distributors, Inc.

Since 1946 Bearing Distributors has operated with the same fundamental business philosophy: “provide the best service at the most competitive prices, regardless of the customer’s size or location.“ Four generations of the Lewis family have managed Bearing Distributors in this way, first instilled by our founder N.H. Lewis.

This business attitude combined with such customer benefits as:

  • Large inventory
  • Experience in locating hard-to-find parts
  • Just-in-time delivery and specialized customer inventory programs
  • Special packaging, lubricating, and relubricating capabilities and
  • Government contract qualifications

has allowed us to grow to what we are today.

We now purchase and stock over 20,000 inventory items representing more than 100 vendors. Because of our long established contacts nationwide, we routinely locate unusual or hard-to-find parts and products and deliver them to you without delay. We are a founding member of a national cooperative of independent distributors, the IDC-USA. This organization of 80+ members allows us discounted purchasing, a national network of warehouses, and a large marketing presence, while enabling us to maintain our independence and flexibility.

In addition to stocking a full line of bearings, PT products, and industrial supplies, we also provide:

  • Sourcing of domestically manufactured products
  • Bearing lubrication and relubrication
  • Sourcing of products to military specs
  • Customized packaging to your requirements
  • Computer aided drive design

We have kept our name for the past 70 years because we are the bearing experts. We have a similar level of expertise in power transmission and conveying equipment. Contact us to find out for yourself.
