“We manufacture Custom Bearings in the USA from one piece to thousands in 45 days or less.”

We are proud of our 120+ years of experience, quality and service. Our sales, engineering and production people have a long history with this company.  Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing is not just a place to work; it is a part of our lives. They take pride in their work and we take pride in them.

We are fortunate to have affiliations with many fine companies that understand the extra effort required to do a job well. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for helping us to achieve the Auburn Advantage.

On August 18, 2006, the Auburn Ball Bearing product line was purchased from M. D. Knowlton Company by Fairport Products and moved to 4 Route 350, Macedon, NY 14502. On June 10, 2013, Fairport Products and Auburn Ball Bearing became one company and is now known as Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing.

We are proud to continue the tradition of Manufacturing Thrust Bearings started in 1898.

Custom Ball Bearing for Aircraft Engine

We quote and produce new parts every day and pride ourselves in our ability to engineer durable and high-quality solutions for a variety of unique application needs. We would be happy to work with you on your next custom, low to mid volume, bearing request and offer you the opportunity to experience the Auburn Advantage.

From SOME of our many enthusiastic customers:

“Frankly, I don’t pay much attention to these bearings any longer. With the new design, it has gone from a headache to a non-issue. Therefore, I would rate this a great success.

These bearings have proven to be far superior to our current option. Machine consistency is the biggest improvement. Also, the inability for a maintenance person to assemble the old 3-piece bearing incorrectly.

The custom solution was by far the better solution to anything I could find on the market. I will certainly reach out to Auburn for future custom issues.”

Brett S., Engineering Manager, Bemis Manufacturing


“We are very pleased to have found Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing to make bearings for a 1916 Fiat aircraft engine, used in a speedboat that we were restoring.

The bearings we needed were obsolete and Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing made the replacement bearings from old, used, worn, bad samples.

One bearing was very unique in that it was a combination Ball Thrust and Ball Radial Bearing with two rows of balls! Fortunately for us, Auburn Bearing made our restoration easy and successful!”
