Tony had been encouraged into the engineering trade by his Father ‘Gordon Brown’ at Edmunds Walker in 1977. After spending 20+ years at Thamesdown Bearings, Tony decided to maximise his technical experience, local customer relationships and established his own company.
Swindon Bearings has steadily grown over the years and recently enjoyed its 10th Birthday. In 2014, Gary, Tony & Judith’s eldest son joined the team, with the ambition to expand the company and guarantee it’s future. Building on from the foundation values of customer focus, technical expertise, reliability of service, and comprehensive stock.
As part of the company’s growth and expansion plans, a new division has been created in the Fire & Safety market; with an exciting portfolio of products which can benefit the company’s existing customers. The introduction of the division has been well received and has already seen the success of a national contract.
With the expansion, the company needed to evolve to incorporate both divisions. The company is now known as SBL Services, comprising of: Swindon Bearings and SBL Fire & Safety. Please look through our website, learn about our comprehensive range and please let us know how we can help you.
"Quick response, friendly & reliable"
Whenever we call on SBL we know we are going to get a quick response, friendly visit and a reliable service on the products we require. We enjoy working with them.
"Always there when I need them"
As a local engineer it is essential that I can repair my customers machines without delay, SBL identify the parts I require and 9/10 always have them in stock. This allows me to complete the job in the same day which reduces the downtime for my customer.
"A service I trust"
We contacted SBL at 7pm on a Friday with a severe breakdown. Gary identified the Gearbox we required, sourced and delivered it by Sunday 7am. What was extra special was SBL had to source the product from outside the UK to help us, an exceptional service.
