Bearings are essential elements of the linear motion products that HepcoMotion exports across the world and, to ensure consistent quality and supply, the company makes its own. Indeed HepcoMotion was one of the first linear motion manufacturers to recognise the importance of vertical integration. Braintree Precision Components – BPC – is the HepcoMotion Group company responsible for this essential activity, and this month it celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Based in Braintree, near Stansted Airport, the company has a 70-strong team of production specialists, each highly knowledgeable in their field. With a commitment to using the latest manufacturing systems and techniques, BPC produces close to two million bearings annually.
The bearings it manufactures range from 13mm to 150mm in diameter with all sizes available in both carbon chrome and stainless steel. The entire production process, from design to final assembly is completed in-house at BPC and it is a company with ISO 9001 quality accreditation in its own right.
Giles Forster, Chairman of the HepcoMotion Group comments: “BPC is a crucial part of our manufacturing chain and its work is critical to the success of our wider business. The company has a rich history and a great team and in recognition of both we have produced a special book that will be given to each employee.”
