We believe that bigger is not always better. By keeping our product range specialised and clearly defined, we know our products well allowing us to give you a better service with excellent technical back-up. SMB Bearings specialises in miniature bearings, thin-section bearings and corrosion resistant bearings.

We began over 30 years ago by catering to a growing demand for micro and miniature ball bearings. After a few years, we expanded our range to incorporate larger, stainless steel and thin section bearings.

By natural progression, we later expanded our portfolio, adding products to complement our range of stainless steel bearings and offering additional solutions to customers needing bearings for harsh environments. Plastic bearings were the first addition, followed by marine grade stainless steel bearings and, finally, full ceramic bearings.

EZO Agents - We are authorised distributors for Sapporo Precision of Japan who manufacture EZO brand miniature bearings, thin section bearings and stainless steel bearings.

Sapporo Precision have been manufacturing bearings for over 50 years and have expanded significantly during that time to become a world-leading producer of smaller bearings. They have a reputation for consistent quality and reliability throughout the world thanks to continuous improvement in manufacturing and quality control.

During our early years, we were often asked to supply bearings with non-standard lubricants such as food grade, high temperature or military-specification greases and oils. Customers had been used to long delivery times or large minimum order quantities from other manufacturers so, in response, we set up a bearing relubrication facility and began to relubricate our own bearings, or our customers’ bearings, with specialist oils, greases or dry lubricants. This facility has recently been expanded to include a new processing room and additional staff along with proprietary lubrication equipment.

Our high level of product knowledge and our enthusiasm ensures that we continue to provide bearing and lubrication solutions to existing or potential customers. We don’t just sell bearings, we help to solve your problems.
