Brett S., Engineering Manager, Bemis Manufacturing

“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.”


P. Rai Menges, President / Director of Engineering, Aerospace Research Systems, LLC

“Auburn has very high-quality bearings and substantial technical expertise in materials. As a material scientist it was wonderful to have the level of engineering expertise Auburn offers for specialty and custom applications.


It has been a pleasure working with Auburn on sourcing our new product. We will specify Auburn products again without hesitation and I have recommended Auburn several times to current and former clients.


American manufacturing needs American components. Thank you Auburn!”


Martin Reinhardt, Arcade Conservation Technician, The Strong National Museum of Play

“Auburn Bearing and Manufacturing has always been able to assist with the Strong Museum’s mission to preserve classic arcade games and pinball machines.


One hurdle that comes with collecting rare and vintage games is finding sources for parts. Partnering with Auburn Bearing and Manufacturing has facilitated the preservation of many games that otherwise wouldn’t be able to be restored.


They are always enthusiastic to provide solutions for our unique requests. Having a local source for custom work like this in invaluable for the museum’s mission of conserving and maintaining coin-op machines for our guests and researchers to use and enjoy.“


George Ktsanes, Owner / President, Renaissance Metals Inc.

“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!”
