Bowman International, a leading innovator of bearings and components, has announced a new associate for its Split Bearings Division, in South Africa.
Bowman Split Bearings South Africa Pty Ltd, will work closely with Bowman’s Split Bearing Division to deliver the manufacturer’s high-load capacity split roller bearings to the South African and African markets.
Managing Director, Paul Mitchell, comments on this latest addition to Bowman’s network of distributors:
“There are several heavy-side industries in South Africa and Africa that struggle with the detrimental effects of bearing failure – mining, quarrying, agriculture, sugar processing and paper production to name a few.
“Our new associates, Director, Gary Mayer and Director, Leon Van den berg, will support businesses in these areas to reduce downtime by specifying the Bowman Advanced Roller Bearing, which is specifically designed for high-load applications.
“We are excited by this new association in South Africa and look forward to seeing the successes both companies bring.”
Gary Mayer adds: “Between us, Leon and I have over 65 years combined experience in the bearing supply chain, giving us a deep understanding of the challenges faced by industries across our region. Bowman’s dimensionally interchangeable high-load capacity split roller bearings are the ideal solution for making bearing change out faster and maintaining uptime over the life of the bearing.
“We are already talking to our broad network of connections about making the switch to the Advanced product and feedback is extremely positive. With the full backing of the Bowman Split Bearing team in the UK, we look forward to bringing product portfolio to the South African and African markets from our warehousing facilities in Cape Town and Rustenburg.
The Bowman Advanced Split Roller Bearing has been designed to improve performance and uptime in high load applications. Leveraging the design and manufacturing capabilities of production 3D printing, it offers significantly more radial and axial load capacity (in both directions) when compared to any other split roller bearing available on the market. To make bearing change out faster, the cartridges of the Advanced Split Roller Bearing are dimensionally interchangeable with cartridges from all major manufacturers allowing easy mounting into existing pedestals or other housing types.
Bowman is proud to hold substantial inventory, to make global delivery fast and affordable. As a new associate of the company, Bowman Split Bearings South Africa Pty Ltd will hold inventory to serve the South African and African market.
