General Bearings is a privately owned corporation founded in Johannesburg in 1992.  General Bearings chose to specialise in Ball & Roller Bearings in order to be able to offer customers a Specialist service.  This philosophy has enabled the corporation to grow considerably over the last 8 years.

Our key strength is in our personnel whose accumulative Bearing experience of 29 years incorporate a detailed knowledge of market requirements.  This combined with our stockholding and our many contacts around the world enables us to keep industry on the move by providing an unrivalled service, 24 hours a day.  7 days a week.

Special Services:

Airfreight Breakdown Service

In addition to our own stockholding and local supplies, we also have access to many of the worlds leading suppliers.  So we are able to airfreight, from overseas, bearings that are not available locally.  Standard delivery time for bearings that are ex-stock at our overseas suppliers is 1 week from date of order.  However, if bearings are required more urgently, we will, at an additional charge, have them sent via courier.
