Vesconite Bearings in the Netherlands received 30 crates of stock in February.
Many of these crates include extra-large marine bearings made of Vesconite and Vesconite Hilube bearing materials that do not swell or distort in water, do not delaminate or distort under higher loads, do not corrode, do not require lubrication, are resistant to oils and fuel, are easy to fit and remove, and prolong shaft life.
“The intention is to be able to get rudder and stern tube bearings to customers quicker,” says Vesconite Bearings BV MD Conrad Penzhorn.
“Lead-times-to-delivery are particularly important for marine customers, and we want to cater for this requirement,” he says, noting that dry-dock fees are considerable and waiting for parts needs to be avoided.
Vesconite’s stock includes many popular sizes of rudder bearings and stern tubes.
These are packed, and ready to be sent as soon as orders are received.
Vesconite Bearings’ warehouse is located near Utrecht in the Netherlands.
Stock bearings can be delivered within Europe within a day of being despatched from the facility.
Stock can also be collected by arrangement, with the warehouse within easy access of the cities of Utrecht, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
