For more than 100 years, Kilian Manufacturing has been one of the world’s largest producers of machine-race bearings and value-added assemblies.
Headquartered in Syracuse, New York, and with a second production facility in Toronto, Canada, about 180 people are employed to ensure Kilian maintains that leadership position.
Kilian’s primary product/service is the design, manufacturing, and support of custom machined race bearings. We often combine these bearings with other components to create value-added assemblies, allowing customers to purchase solutions in addition to single products.
Catalog and no-rust bearings are also available for customers who don’t require customization.
