Bearing Service distributes bearings, power transmission products, and related accessories to industrial customers throughout Michigan. Established in Detroit in 1943 by Herbert Mann, a veteran of the bearing industry, Bearing Service later expanded to other locations under the stewardship of Mr. Mann’s son-in-law, Shea Savage. He opened a branch in Warren and later moved into a new main warehouse facility in Livonia as business opportunities in the suburbs increased. Mr. Savage’s son, Doug Savage, took control of Bearing Service in 1978, following his father’s death. He guided the company through a period of aggressive growth that saw Bearing Service open more branches and expand its core product line to include power transmission products. Today, Bearing Service successfully operates branches in Brownstown, Kalamazoo, Livonia, and Warren. Our corporate office / central distribution center is also located in Livonia. Our growth over the years is a testament to Bearing Service’s unfaltering commitment to customer service excellence. We strive to provide our customers with the “Premium Service, Expert Solutions” that is our guiding philosophy.
