About Us

Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing, founded in 1898, is considered to be one of the
oldest continuously operating thrust bearing manufacturers in the United States. Today, we specialize in the design, development, and manufacture of custom, hard-to-find, discontinued and obsolete bearings in low- to mid- volume with short 4 to 6 week lead times. We can customize various aspects of a bearing, including its size, design, features, and materials to accommodate to a wide range of industries and applications. We can quote per print, per sample, and per part number from another manufacturer.

Beyond custom bearings, ABM also offers a complete line of standard thrust bearings, many of which feature Auburn’s exclusive V-groove raceway, which was designed specifically for the purpose of reducing rolling friction. Our standard line of thrust bearings is comprised of 13 different bearing styles that range in size from 2 mm ID to 13.75 inches OD.

Additionally, ABM is capable of producing a wide range of special, made to-order machined parts and components to solve your problems. Our diverse custom manufacturing capabilities include CNC turning, CNC milling, and CNC grinding, lapping, superfinishing, automatic saw cutting, reverse engineering, and much more.

With over 120 years’ experience, we have established a solid reputation in the bearing industry and are committed to providing shorter lead times, faster response times, on-time delivery, low minimum order quantities, innovative solutions, personalized service, trusted engineering support, high precision capabilities, and quality products that are made in the USA. We welcome the opportunity to offer you the Auburn Advantage.
