Bearing Man, a bearing shop, opened in Durban (1974) and gradually expanded its service and product offerings to include so much more than just bearings - a range of the finest, globally recognised brands. The company grew to over 100 branches in South Africa, acquired Fenner Power Transmission distribution 1998, Invicta Bearings in 2000, Springset in 2004 and then Oscillating Systems technology in 2005.
Expansion into Africa continued, with branches opening in Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Botswana and Mozambique. In 2006 this powerful force in the engineering industry became a wholly owned subsidiary of Humulani, a company controlled by Invicta Holdings and, in 2007, concluded a ground-breaking BEE deal.
The group of brands did more than excel over time… They flourished! So did staff loyalty to the Bearing Man brand. Their strong company spirit made it one of the most exciting places to work.
