A Family Run Business Steeped In Industry Knowledge

Swindon Bearings was established in 2007 by Tony & Judith Brown and quickly became a leading technical distributor of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services within the South West.


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.
