Services BNL (UK) Limited Provide

We focus on providing our customers with bearing designs that will achieve their desired objectives.

Value Added Design

Our integrated designs add value whilst reducing component count, assembly operations and product weight, by combining multiple components and functions into a single moulded part.

Quality and Consistency

We are ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and TS 16949 accredited at all moulding production sites, reflecting our commitment to stringent quality standards and ensuring we deliver quality and value from concept to production.

High Performance Products

Our bearings are fully moulded to maintain the fine crystalline layer on the surface area of the bearing race-way, which significantly improves wear resistance, increasing the efficiency and life of our products.

Global Partnership

Partnership with and understanding of our customers is important to ensure we can meet their expectations and requirements. Our global team offers support to all our customers worldwide throughout our relationship with them.
