Kaydon Corporation has recently acquired the Avon Bearings Corporation and this brings important advantages to the customers of R. A. Rodriguez, the longstanding sole distributor for Kaydon bearings in the UK.
With its headquarters in Ohio, Avon is a leading designer and manufacturer of custom, large-diameter turntable bearings. Indeed it is one of the most respected manufacturers in this field, with customers in a diverse set of markets. Avon also re-manufactures bearings and is known globally for its focus on engineering support.
This acquisition complements manufacturing capabilities at Kaydon and, in combination with ongoing capital investment programmes, has set the company on course to be the largest manufacturer of slewing ring bearings in North America.
David Hey, Sales Manager at R. A. Rodriguez, comments: “From our perspective in the UK this news gives our customers instant access to Avon’s flexible manufacturing capabilities for low-volume, large-diameter slewing ring bearings up to 240 inches (6m) in diameter. The arrangement also allows us to provide a re-work service for large diameter slewing ring bearings.”
