Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing acquires Aurotek TSB


As of February 1, 2021, Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing Inc., an American-based designer and manufacturer of thrust bearings, custom bearings, and precision components, recently announced that it has acquired the assets of Aurotek TSB, Inc.

Aurotek TSB, Inc. specialized in the production of precision thin section bearings for a broad array of industries. These bearings are used in a variety of applications.

Peter Schroth, president of Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing, notes this acquisition aligns with the company’s strategy to expand its product offerings to include American-made precision radial bearings, along with its current thrust ball and roller bearings, in low- to mid- volume production runs and with reasonable lead times.

Aurotek TSB was founded by Dr. Don Cancelmo, who spent his entire career working in the thin section bearing industry. Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing had been a supplier of rings and bearing components to the company since 2011 and is happy to move forward in adding this to its trusted line of bearing products.

Previously located in Herkimer New York, the operations and assets of Aurotek TSB will be moved to Macedon, New York, where the business will continue to operate within the Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing facility at 4 State Route 350, Macedon, New York 14502.

Founded in 1989, Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing, Inc. is one of the oldest continuously operating thrust ball bearing manufacturers in the U.S., and is known for its exclusive line of “V” groove thrust bearings, which are designed to reduce rolling friction. Today, ABM specializes in manufacturing custom ball and roller thrust bearings in low- to mid- volume, as well as in custom manufacturing of precision machined components.
