Leading engineering component stockist Acorn Industrial Services has become the first company in the UK to be awarded Super Precision Bearing Partner status by leading bearing manufacturer – SKF.

The partnership is an essential milestone for ACORN and compliments its existing Maintenance Product Partner status.

To achieve this prestigious partnership, ACORN met all the criteria set out by SKF. Requirements set out by SKF included experienced product experts on hand to offer technical assistance, in-depth product training for ACORN employees, offering onsite product training to customers and engineers, along with a substantial stock investment to ensure customers have immediate access to the range, thus enabling rapid delivery for breakdowns and repair and maintenance requirements.

SKF Super Precision Bearings are renowned for their exceptional performance, high-speed capabilities, and system rigidity, making them the ideal solution for any high-speed industry. By partnering with SKF, ACORN can offer a superior range and increased stock levels of single, universally faced bearings that can be easily combined to meet specific requirements.

Bearing Product Manager, Andy Fletcher commented: “ACORN has placed a significant stock investment to supply SKF Super Precision Bearings ‘off-the-shelf’, so clients are no longer constrained by long lead times. The increased flexibility in the supply chain enables businesses to be up and running faster, ultimately leading to increased profitability. The partnership with SKF cements ACORN’s position as a leading precision bearings and machine-building component supplier.”

Being appointed as SKF’s first-ever Super Precision Bearing Partner assures customers they can get the parts they need immediately, enabling businesses to achieve optimal performance with the highest quality products delivered quickly and efficiently.
