Training and development is a key focus for our partners at Bearings 2000. So much so that since April 2019 they have introduced a state-of-the-art training facility at their head office in Germiston. The facility was introduced to educate and upskill their customers and team.

This reinforces their pledge to ‘simplify the supply of industrial products’.

Bearing’s 2000 has been operating since 1992 providing comprehensive range of bearings, power transmission products, seals and allied industrial products. The company, however, is about far more than the products they supply. The team has always put relationships at the centre of everything do. 

The more our customers know more about the product they are buying, the more inclined they will be to order the correct product the first time.

Michael Stamatiadis (sales director) says, “This results in faster turnaround times and reduced downtime. In addition, the correct handling, mounting and maintenance of bearings will result in longer and more consistent life spans, as well as improved stock and spares planning.”
