How American Manufacturing Supports a More Sustainable Supply Chain for Industrial Bearing Products

Throughout the industrial manufacturing space, “made in the USA” is generally synonymous with better quality and better sustainability. Whether it’s maintaining the machines that make the products or manufacturing the products themselves, onshoring offers a more direct and efficient link between the customer and the service provider. Industrial bearing products and related components, of course, are no exception.

often deliver a combination of improved quality, accountability, and customer service when compared to our offshore competitors. More importantly, as the industry has repeatedly proven throughout the 2020s, domestic providers can help customers avoid the fallout of international supply chain disruptions – from shipping delays to parts shortages – adding to the long-term sustainability of your operation.

Three Ways “Made in the USA” Improves Supply Chain for the Industrial Bearing Market:

Sustainable Just-in-Time Manufacturing (JIT)

Just-in-time manufacturing is a production method designed to facilitate maximum efficiency and sustainability throughout the production process. JIT delivery provides customers with the exact quantities of bearing products that they need exactly as they need them – no excess inventory, wasted materials, or associated costs.

A well-sorted JIT plan eliminates both overages and part shortages, leaving you with a more cost-effective and sustainable supply chain. Due to our closer proximity to end users and much more responsive customer service capabilities, American manufacturers like BSC are poised to provide the most reliable just-in-time production plans possible.

A Local Source for Industrial Bearing Repair and Restoration

Domestic vendors are also much better positioned to handle bearing repair, remanufacturing, and reclamation services. These invaluable refurbishment services not only save you money on your high-cost machine investments – they’re also the eco-friendly option when compared to replacing industrial bearings and adding the old components to the scrap yard. With six service centers conveniently located across the nation, BSC offers the sustainability advantages of industrial bearing repair while simplifying the logistics of your supply chain.
