Codex celebrates 30 years of excellence in the bearing industry.

Codex, a renowned bearing company, commemorates its 30th anniversary this year. This marks a significant milestone in its journey from humble beginnings to becoming a global player in the bearing industry. Throughout its history, Codex has steadily grown and evolved, delivering exceptional products and services to customers worldwide. 

Established by Matej Šinko and Igor Banfi in 1993 in Murska Sobota, Slovenia, Codex embarked on its mission to provide high-quality bearings and power transmission elements to meet the diverse needs of industrial sectors. With unwavering dedication and a customer-centric approach, the company quickly established itself as a reliable local supplier.

Today, the company has 50 employees and 15 external co-workers which help support customers from the electric motor industry, manufacturing and railway to e-mobility and agricultural sectors. Their many years of experience, knowledge and constant search for better solutions allow them to always provide their customers with the best possible quality for their money through an established quality assurance system.

At the company headquarters, Codex has a modern warehouse with more than 25,000 different items, offering their distribution partners the option of easy online ordering of products from stock. They also help OEMs with supplying quality standard parts as well as with quick modification of non-standard items. With a team of engineers, they provide customer support in determining the quality of standard products that the customers need for their solutions, in searching for their replacements and in the development of new products.

Codex’s commitment to excellence is exemplified in its latest recognition with the ‘Preferred supplier certificate’ awarded by Knorr-Bremse Rail vehicle Systems division in 2022 and 2023. The certificate serves as evidence of the exceptional quality of Codex products and Codex’s remarkable performance as a company.

To achieve better customer support, Codex opened a laboratory at their European HQ facilities in 2019, in addition to their laboratory for quality control inspection in Shanghai, China. The HQ laboratory helps Codex support its customers faster and more efficiently in Europe. In March 2023, the company also opened a showroom in Shanghai to provide additional support to their global partners in Asia. 

Today, Codex remains focused on the future, with an unyielding drive to continue its growth trajectory while adhering to its core values. Codex envisions further expansion, diversification, and innovation, ensuring that it remains a reliable partner to its esteemed customers worldwide.
