Last month, Kaydon Bearings – located in Muskegon, Michigan – celebrated their 75th anniversary. A global affair, the company organized events in their hometown, as well as several far-reaching celebrations in South Carolina, Ohio, China, Mexico and Brazil. As a valued provider of cross rollers, airframe control bearings, ball bearings and precision bearings, Bearing Service has come to rely on Kaydon largely because of their ongoing commitment to quality, swift turnaround times and superior customer service.

Founded in 1941, the Kaydon Engineering Corporation was the brainchild of Harold Frauenthal, himself a Michigan native. Since that time, the company has earned a reputation for aggressive problem solving and has become a mainstay in a range of industries, including medical equipment, aviation, aerospace, renewable energy, robotics, heavy equipment and more. Becoming a member of the SKF Group brand, Kaydon was able to expand their scope, innovating new product lines – including their renowned thin section bearing products – and continuing to deliver on their promise of delivering the industry’s best ball bearings, ring bearings and custom bearings.

At Bearing Service, we would like to congratulate Kaydon Bearings on this historic achievement. As a fellow Michigan-based company, we feel a special affinity for Kaydon, their employees and their products. Because of that, we are proud to offer an extensive line of the company’s products and, more importantly, to work closely with them to meet their exacting, precision standards. If you’ve been looking for the industry’s highest quality bearings, from a company that you can count on, contact us today to discuss the Kaydon products that are available through Bearing Service.
