Newport News, VA — Craft Bearing Company, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer of split roller bearings, has recently joined the Bearing Specialists Association (BSA). According to Jeff Pennetti, vice-president, “We are very excited to join this elite group of manufacturers and distributors. With Craft’s expertise and experience, we hope to make a contribution to this fine organization and support its efforts to provide service and support for bearing end users.”

BSA was founded in 1966 by the merger of the former Anti-Friction Bearing Distributors Association and the former Association of Bearing Specialists. It is an international, non-profit organization representing firms that, as authorized distributors, stock and sell factory-warranted anti-friction bearings. BSA member firms provide value added services and replacement bearings to their customers and provide a useful link between manufacturers and end users.

Craft has a successful track record in the marine, mining, cement, water treatment, power generation, steel, pulp and paper, lumber and other industries. The reality of not removing shafts or drive components to replace bearings helps companies save time and money, said Pennetti. The company’s engineering team has designed numerous custom housings and fittings to service its global customer base. Bore sizes are available from 1-7/16 in. to 32 in., with same day shipment through 12 in.
