As a small specialty ceramic hybrid bearing manufacturer (small, at least in comparison to the industry giants), it can be difficult to grab the attention of some of the major electric motor manufacturers. The large bearing companies have marketing budgets and sales teams that dwarf our staff here at CBR. However, recently, CBR caught the attention of a major new client!
We got a call from the largest, and one of the most respected manufacturers of electric motors in the country. This company supplies motors for equipment such as large metal working machines, wood working machines, and others.
During the phone call, the company’s purchasing agent told us that their normal supplier of ceramic hybrid bearings wasn’t able to deliver the bearings they needed for several months! Of course, a major manufacturing company like this can’t wait that long. Actually, we don’t know of anyone who wants to wait that long for bearings for their equipment. Fortunately, here at CBR, we had the exact bearings the company needed already on our shelves, ready to ship out. We packaged them up and sent them to our new customer via Next Day Air.
About a month later, we got a call from the same company, who placed an even larger order for our ceramic hybrid ball bearings. They were thrilled with the products they had received in their first order as well as with the quick turnaround time (one day, instead of the several months that another supplier had quoted them), and wanted more!
For a small specialty bearing maker like CBR to be found, selected, and used again by a major company like this is a big deal. We are glad we were able to meet their expectations and hope that this is the beginning of a great business relationship.
We believe that one of the main reasons why we were able to earn this company’s business (and their repeat business) is because we were able to give them a fast turnaround time. At any given time, we have all of the standard sizes of bearings in stock and ready to ship out. Even if you require a custom bearing or specialty bearing, our company is equipped to build and ship out bearings of all sizes in a matter of days. You don’t have to settle for the long lead times quoted by other ceramic hybrid bearing manufacturers. CBR can get you the bearings you need quickly, and at a competitive price point.
Whether you’re a large company looking to place an order for ceramic hybrid bearings, or if you only need one specialty bearing, CBR is happy to help. Give us a call or contact us through our website and let us know what you need. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about our ceramic hybrid bearings or get some shipped out to you quickly.
