The Full Story

torrington-287TQ08-16-BA742-thin

A major distributor needed to locate a Timken/Torrington 287TQO816 bearing for a customer's reversing mill. They reached out to the manufacturer to purchase a new bearing and the lead time for the new bearing was 28 weeks, which was much longer than the customer had anticipated. The cost of the new bearing from the manufacturer was: $363,965.67

The distributor reached out to BDS to locate the bearing and we were able to source a new bearing and get to the customer in just 1 week. The cost of the sourced bearing was $339,000.00. BDS also authenticated the bearing and guaranteed it with a one year warranty.

By working with BDS, the distributor was able to get their customer the bearing they needed to reduce the downtime of their reversing mill by 27 weeks and save them $24,965.67.
