Bearing Manufacturer

Technoslide (Pty) Ltd and Bearing Technologies CC are both offshoots of Glacier Bearings, a bearing manufacturer from Pinetown from 1967 to 1998. In 1998, the owners of Glacier Bearings, the T&N Group, sold the Company to Federal Mogul Inc. Some senior staff and other employees then founded Technoslide (Pty) Ltd., which continued the bearing manufacturer activities including a wide range of plain bearings. Bearing Technologies CC was formed in 1999 to supply structural bearings and provides specialised technical services in the field of tribology to Technoslide (Pty) Ltd.

The Group specializes in the development, design, production and marketing of plain bearing products and technologies, and high product quality and a genuine commitment to service delivery are the stamps of our success. The Group believes in a high level of investment in research and development, and we optimize our existing products and continually bring in new solutions. The products and services presently supplied by this bearing manufacturer include:

  • Design, manufacture and repair of whitemetal bearings
  • Design and manufacture of Civil and structural bearings
  • Composite Self-lubricating Bearings
  • Specialized bronze bearings
  • Fibre reinforced polymer bearings

Technoslide, in its role as an international organization, views itself as a learning organization. Through inflexible service excellence and by developing long-term relationships with both customers and suppliers, we endeavour to satisfy the market requirements in every respect and supply budget-priced products of the very highest standard. Head office of this prime bearing manufacturer is situated in Johannesburg with a local branch in Pinetown, KwaZulu Natal. We also have European offices in Worksop, UK, trading under the name of ABT Ltd (Associated bearing technologies).
