Australia’s largest distributor of bearings, power transmission and engineered solutions, CBC operates a network of 60 branches and 100+ channel partners, employs 450 staff, and will partner Bonfiglioli in their expansion objective.

CBC Australia has been servicing the mining and heavy industry all over Australia for over 60 years. The company’s product range has continuously evolved to meet industry requirements through alliances established with international manufacturers at the forefront of product development, including Bonfiglioli.

According to Bonfiglioli’s Managing Director Malcolm Lewis, CBC adds a new dimension to their established distribution network for the locally engineered and extensive global product ranges including helical drives, planetary drives, worm drives, speed variators and automation products for reliable and energy-efficient applications.

CBC will distribute Bonfiglioli’s large HD and HDO drives widely used in the resources and materials handling industries as well as their price-effective worm drives, including state-of-the-art technology VF/W models with the flexibility of wide mounting options, shaft configurations and motor interfaces as standard.
