OUR BEARINGS HISTORY
Ketchie has been making bearings from the beginning in 1947. We quickly established a solid reputation in the industry. The Fafnir bearing company knew of Ketchie's reputation for quality and in 1975, agreed to let us become the exclusive source for many their earliest pillow block lines. We continue producing the highest quality bearing housings from castings, forgings, and burnouts to suit your needs. Being a precision machine shop allows us the ability to modify standard housings or work with you to design and manufacture custom individual units or large scale production runs.
Ketchie has designed many ball and roller mounted units for
various types of equipment.
