The Bearing & Power Transmission Distributor Network

BearingNet was launched 25 years ago as a platform for bearing & power transmission distributors to trade with each other. The platform has continued to develop and we now have over 1,900 distributor members around the world.

More recently, 6 years ago, we launched a new channel on BearingNet specifically for manufacturers called ‘Manufacturers Advertising Platform’ (MAP). The MAP is designed to help manufacturers promote their brand, products and capabilities to the distribution network, find new distribution partners internationally, promote their existing distribution network and ultimately increase sales.



  • Instantly source what you need, choose from over 1.6 billion bearings…. Standard, rare, obsolete, emergency replacement.
  • If you haven’t got the part in your warehouse, find it on BearingNet.
  • Never turn a customer away, billions of bearings means you can always source the part they need.



  • Upload your inventory and sell to distributors around the world.
  • Extend your international reach. Establish new markets and partnerships for your products.



  • The world’s largest bearing and power transmission B2B internet marketplace, with over 1,900 distributor customers using our services daily.

  • BearingNet has a community of over 7,500 likeminded industry professionals.

Manufacturers from around the world have joined the MAP and have hugely benefited from advertising to thousands of distributors.

The BearingNet User Meetings


We all know the importance of having a digital presence, but face-to-face communication is still the best form of communication….and the BearingNet User Meetings offer just that!


The User Meetings are the world’s biggest distributor event exclusively for bearing and power transmission companies. BearingNet have hosted these meetings for 16 years and in that time have learnt what it is that our members want from these events – time to talk to each other without the interruption of long speeches and presentations.


The 3-day event offers unrivaled networking opportunities for BearingNet members to meet in person, promote their company, discuss business and establish new contacts whilst reacquainting with existing customers and friends.


Another fantastic element of our User Meetings is the Manufacturers’ Showcase. Manufacturers primarily attend the User Meetings to showcase their products and find new distributors, helping you to experience product quality first-hand. It is a great way to find the right manufacturer for your needs and to grow your business by adding their products to your portfolio.

Virtual BearingNet User Meeting 24-28 May 2021


Due to Covid-19 we have had to cancel this year’s meeting in Berlin, however we have replaced it with a Virtual User Meeting from the 24-28th May 2021. The format will be very similar to previous events and will allow delegates to meet and talk business with one another by booking meetings and also the more ‘fun’ networking element where our delegates can join a table and chat with between 2 – 8 delegates in a more virtually social setting!
