About Us

21ST CENTURY BEARINGS has become a worldwide leader in the supply of Bearings, Linear Motion, and other Mechanical Components. We’ve been in business since 1991, and have called two different continents home in that time.

We realize what we do isn’t seen as glamorous, but if you need a dependable supplier, glamour and flash don’t get the job done. Reliable shipping, a large, available stock, and a fair price are what you are looking for. To that end, we pass the test in every facet.

A few things we’ve learned in our two-plus decades in this industry:

  • Global Sourcing and Product Availability are Vital - We specialize in Precision Bearings & Linear Motion stocking and sourcing. If it exists anywhere, then we can procure it. We have a huge stock on hand, and also have access to a global inventory from various manufacturers and distributors.
  • Speed is of the Essence – Fast, reliable shipping is our norm. We also offer emergency 24/7 service to save downtime for our customers. If you call us at 3am, we’ll answer the phone. And lightning-fast quotes are part of our repertoire as well. Call us at 888.670.9521 and put us to the test.
  • Knowledge Counts – Many of our clients rely on our experience to get them the exact parts they need. They also look to us for technical assistance (including Application, Assembly and Maintenance of the parts), which we are happy to provide.
  • “Obsolete” isn’t in our vocabulary – Parts may get discontinued, but some customers still need them. We gladly handle non-standard and obsolete bearings, and are a go-to supplier for that troublesome size nobody else carries.
  • Tomorrow is Important – We build partnerships with our clients, and everything we do is predicated on the long-term. We realize that we earn future business, and are always aware that your needs matter more than ours.
  • Every Size Company Is Our Customer – While it’s true that our largest clients are quite large, we welcome any sized company into our fold. Whether you need four large orders a day or one small order every four months, you can count on us. Besides, small companies become big companies. If we can help you on your way there, all the better.
