Midland Bearings is celebrating a milestone 20 years as the exclusive distributor for FK bearings in the UK and Ireland, a status which sees it supplying an array of FK housing units and inserts for industrial and agricultural applications. For two decades, the West Midlands firm has ensured UK customers can easily access products from China’s leading bearing experts.
Not only are FK bearings in the UK and Ireland available exclusively from Midland Bearings, the supplier also houses the largest stock of FK-branded units in Europe. The distributor, who boasts more than 35 years in the industry, stocks designs including pillow blocks, flanged units, cartridge units, take-up units, and pressed housings. Along with their usage in industrial and agricultural settings, FK bearings are also commonly used in conveyor systems.
“FK Bearings is a premium Chinese brand, primarily distributing to 30 provinces throughout China which has made it challenging for customers in the UK and Ireland to access FK-branded products,” says Midland Bearings Managing Director Phil Chesworth. “Having worked in the industry for many decades, we understand just how FK Bearings’ own complete industrial chain automatic factory produces bearings that are far superior to their competitors, which is why we’ve remained committed to bringing these high quality products to the UK.
“We’re proud to be the only approved distributor of FK bearings in the UK and Ireland, helping us to achieve our goal of supplying the very best quality bearings from around the world at the lowest prices for our customers.”
FK Bearings was founded in 1969, and has focused exclusively on the design, manufacture, and supply of quality bearing units since 1975. Produced to stringent ISO 9001 standards, the brand’s motto of ‘Find Solution, Keep Rotation’ ensures that all products facilitate smooth, streamlined processes. The FK brand is trademarked in 88 countries, and is available in the UK and Ireland exclusively through Midland Bearings’ website and warehouse.
Midland Bearings is the largest UK importer of bearings from China, Japan, and Western Europe, and today holds more than 15 million products at its 75,000 square foot warehouse in the West Midlands. The firm started the year on a high with the launch of a brand new website, making FK bearings, and other brands including KSM, MBA, INA, RHP and SKF, easy to source in the UK.
