The Benefits of a Premier Bearing Wholesaler and Distributor

The focus of Ritbearing is to offer high quality, cost effective ball and roller bearings to our current and potential customer base.

Our customers are comprised of industrial distributors, original equipment manufacturers and wholesalers throughout North America. Ritbearing's manufacturer network consists of bearing manufacturing plants located in Japan, China and throughout Europe.

Each manufacturer represented by Ritbearing undergoes a process of identification and qualification. Ritbearing management meets regularly with the suppliers to review bearing manufacturing and marketing processes that will best suit the customer base.

Products are offered to Ritbearing's customers in each manufacturer's box. Customers are provided with the opportunity to audit and review each factory as they desire. We have nothing to hide at Ritbearing. The product quality of our bearing manufacturers speaks for itself.

The goal Ritbearing has for the industrial distributor segment is both sales and customer growth. Ritbearing works closely with each distributor to identify new target accounts and the products required to secure new business at a desired profit margin level.

Another goal for the industrial distributor segment is margin growth for the distributor's accounts. We are confident in our products' ability to allow the distributor to be more competitive and increase sales margins.

Relationships developed with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) allow Ritbearing to be problem solvers on current applications as well as insightful on new product designs.

OEM customers also realize improved inventory management as Ritbearing works closely with procurement specialists and other management staff. We make every effort to align our inventory in the Unites States for the benefit of both OEM and Ritbearing. Long term relationships with OEM customers have proved Ritbearing to be a valuable supplier.

Ultimately Ritbearing's goal is to be a procurement partner with our current and potential customers, whether that be industrial distributors, OEM or wholesalers. Ritbearing offers a wide variety of quality ball and roller bearing product solutions.

We look forward to learning more about your company and providing bearing products to meet all your application needs.

Ritbearing will provide excellent ball and roller bearings to their customers at a cost effective price while also providing high quality.
