Baldor Australia has signed-on two national distributors to sell their range of DODGE ball and roller bearing products. Distribution through Statewide Bearings which has 16 branches in WA, QLD, VIC and Indonesia, and AWB Bearings which has 9 branches in WA, SA and NSW gives Baldor Australia a national coverage through two experienced bearing sales networks. Both Statewide and AWB are involved in the mining industry and have been selling Dodge bearing products for many years.
Being major national partners means they will be carrying large stocks at all their branches, and staff have completed extensive training in the new range of patented Dodge products. The overall stock investment is around ten times the previous stock holding of both companies which will get the Baldor Dodge products out where they are needed including the field and those that are ready for immediate delivery.
Baldor Dodge mounted bearings are supplied assembled, greased and ready to install out of the box, saving a lot of assembly time for users. Many of the unique features are patented, including concentric adaptor mounting systems that deliver fuss-free 15 minute installation and significantly reduced risk of inherent vibration and shaft fretting. They are manufactured in different industry standard housing styles such as pillow block, tapped base, flanged in 2, 3 and 4-bolt, piloted flange and take-up. Baldor Dodge bearings are available in bores from 17 – 400mm and 1/2 – 15 inch.
