Bradford Engineering staff were recently asked to help with a tricky problem when their customer was struggling to find specialist bearings. They were for the Lafarge cement works in Derbyshire, which had failing bearings in a large gearbox controlling an important process within the site.

Using BES’s Worldwide network of bearing suppliers we were able to supply to their urgent timescale allowing the engineers to refit the problem bearings on-site with little downtime for their customer.

Seven different bearings weighing 2.25 tons in total were shipped from Germany, France and Singapore. BES used freight partners TNT to make sure the goods arrived in first-class condition and on time.

Another good job is done by our experienced technical team at BES.
