HB Bearings is a specialised bearing manufacturer concentrating on low volume production. Established for more than 48 years HB Bearings has become a leading name in the bearing world. It has gone from strength to strength broadening it’s product range and developing a global customer base. Several factors contribute to this, investment in state-of-the-art machinery, a highly skilled work force and a commitment to quality.

Brief History

Back in 1972 our chairman Norman Hirst had the initiative to manufacture and modify bearings in low volume. The timing was perfect as major manufacturers continued to reduce and amalgamate their product ranges, and sadly some went out of business altogether. It became difficult to obtain many types of bearing. There is still today a lot of specialised machinery in use which requires a source for these types of bearings. HB Bearings stock many types of “difficult to source” metric and imperial bearings of their own manufacture.

  • Our principal manufacturing categories are:
    • specials
    • new designs
    • out of production
    • obsolete
    • motorsport bearings

    If you only have limited information HB Bearings has an archive of bearing information. It would not be an exaggeration to say this is probably the best and most comprehensive in Europe.
