Why is Kilian Manufacturing the world’s largest manufacturer of custom machine race bearings and bearing assemblies?

… Because we’re customers’ “Trusted Advisor” when it comes to all sorts of custom friction reducing solutions.

Kilian was founded in 1920 by Frederick Kilian, who patented the unground machined race ball bearing. The Kilian family held onto the company until 1975, when it was sold to a larger company.

Even though we have the resources of a large global organization today, Kilian maintains a small company feel complete with customized personal service.

Our top values include:

  • Leadership    Our engineers and product specialists are leaders within their fields, staying current with best industry practices.
  • Innovation    Because we are a custom manufacturer, we are constantly designing newer and better solutions to solve the challenges of tomorrow.
  • Teamwork    Working side-by-side with our customers as well as our employees, we understand the requirements are hyper-focused on new ideas that will make better products.
  • Continuous Improvement    Our relationship with customers doesn’t end once a design is launched. We are constantly iterating, looking for ways to improve our designs.

Working with Kilian Manufacturing means you are going to work directly with our technical experts to get a custom solution that meets the demands of your application, on-time, and within your budget.

Now that’s value!
