Bowman International, a leading global innovator of bearings and components, has announced its next pivotal move in North America with stock holding in Ohio from 1st October, 2023.
Since launching its North American subsidiary and Ohio sales office at the start of 2022, Bowman Bearing Technologies Inc. has seen significant growth in demand for plain and split bearings across the region. Bowman plans to meet this demand with its renowned customer fulfilment standards – with fast, reliable delivery.
Alistair Brixey, President of Bowman Bearing Technologies Inc, explains: “Holding inventory in the U.S. was always the plan and we are thrilled to have reached this key milestone only a year after entering such a competitive market. With inventory in key locations worldwide, Bowman is known for its commitment to fulfilment and fast delivery, and we will offer the same service standards in North America.
“The market has welcomed Bowman’s wide range of products, our competitive pricing, and our passion for problem solving through innovation. With space to put down roots and expand our team in the region, we are confident that our reputation will go from strength to strength in the coming years.”
With a U.S. warehouse stocking the full range of Bowman products in imperial and metric from Q4 2023, North American customers will benefit from next day delivery* and straightforward pricing, unaffected by transport costs and import duty taxes.
To further support customers in the region, those with regular bearing requirements can take advantage of monthly call-offs from an annual holding of stock to assist lean, uninterrupted production.
Putting down roots for a state-side stock holding will also give Bowman space to offer customer training on its innovative plain bearing materials and market-disruptive split roller bearing portfolio.
Alistair continues: “As a leading innovator in the field of bearings and components, education is an important part of Bowman’s culture. Our new Ohio facility will afford us the space to demonstrate how our portfolio can benefit customers, from our lined, oilless, bronze and BowMet bearings, to our high-capacity advanced split bearing products.”
In addition to its extensive range of more than 6,000 bearing options, Bowman offers an established production volume 3D printing service. This benefit-rich alternative to traditional component manufacturing techniques is gaining momentum across the U.S., and the new Bowman facility will give 3D printing customers a place to store their annual inventory of 3D printed components for scheduled call-offs and fast delivery to site.
In preparation for the Bowman Ohio facility to open its doors in October, Bowman is urging customers in the region to re-evaluate their current bearing value chain and get in touch to discover how Bowman’s commitment to innovation and fast delivery from stock could not only improve bearing performance but deliver time and cost savings too.
