Emerson Bearing, a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the U.S., has promoted Richard Furtado to Senior Sales Expert.
Furtado who has been with Emerson Bearing for 32 years, began his career working in the company’s warehouse and worked his way up to sales. Previous to his most recent promotion, Furtado was a Sales Representative.
A Boston native, Furtado graduated from Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA with a degree in Business Management. He has received accreditation and additional training at Emerson. Most recently, he attended a seminar for Schaeffler Technologies FAG brand.

FIAS Consultants International, MCM Oil Tools, WireCo WorldGroup, Weir Hazleton Inc., Texas Steel Conversion and Newell Recycling are just a few of the clients Furtado serves.
Furtado will assist clients in determining which bearing technologies would be most suitable by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing in relation to the application. He will also provide Bearing Failure Analysis to clients to determine the cause of bearing failure in order to prevent future failure and predict reliability.
