After a century of transformation, BUT bearings have provided high-quality roller bearings for various industrial customer groups. We continue to develop, design, and manufacture sturdy bearings that serve as the cornerstone of the British industrial economy. The UK has undergone significant changes in the past 100 years, and BUT bearings have proven to be able to adapt to these changes. As steel has been one of our main customers since 1911, the industry has transformed into thin plate continuous casting machines and faster rolling mills, and BUT bearings use more precise bearings to cope with more precise steel products and longer service life. As mining became more open-pit, BUT bearings introduced a new generation of bearings that could provide longer lifespan equipment, and bearing replacement was a very complex process. BUT bearings have made significant contributions to the development of heavy industry and are committed to continuing. This century long tradition of excellence will become the direction of future development. BUT Bearing Company promises to "do better every day", designing, developing, and manufacturing better bearings for the 21st century market.
