MBA products are sourced from many factories worldwide. The country of origin will usually be shown in the properties table on the item page. The original brand will not be shown because we may substitute one quality manufacturer's product for another so long as the products both meet the required specifications.
An exception to the above is when we specify a "brand" as part of our part number (eg, 608-2RSMC3-NSK). In such cases, the item offered will be the brand stated in the part number.
The brands shown in the boxes below are a sample of the factories that we use, however we do regularly source from over 100 manufacturers.
With respect to bearing brands offered...
- European Bearings are usually either WIB, Myonic, RMB or GRW.
- USA Bearings are usually NHBB or MPB (Timken).
- Japanese Bearings are usually ISC, NSK, NTN, EZO, NACHI or KOYO
- Bearings sourced from factories with no brand have the designation "-ECO" at the end of the part number.
