Since 1974, Oshawa Bearings has been Durham Regions premiere independent Bearing and Power Transmission Distributor. As an independent family owned business we offer products from some of the world’s most recognized manufacturers while providing the knowledge and customer service that makes small business uniquely special.

To better serve our customers Oshawa Bearing’s has associated itself with the Affiliated Distributors (AD) buying group. With over 700 members AD allows us access to thousands of products from hundreds of manufacturers all over the world. Not only can we get the products our customers need, but with AD we can do so at a competitive price.

As a diversified power transmission distributor we are proud to offer a “one stop shop” solution for all your industrial application needs. From product supply to on-site technical assistance we have the experience and flexibility to help solve any problem.

Over the years Oshawa Bearings has diversified and grown from offering simple bearings and power transmission products to specializing in motor and electrical applications. This growth culminated in the creation of OBI Automation and Controls in 2008. As a full service electrical automation control provider our capabilities include but are not limited to custom PLC programming, electrical automation system design and custom electrical panel design and build.

Independent in all the right ways, we pride ourselves in building long term relationships with our customers based on the supply of superior products and experienced services. Like many small businesses our exceptional customer service and detailed knowledge provide us the unique opportunity to provide a solution based experience you can’t get anywhere else.
