A good walk spoiled. That’s how some describe the game of golf. More and more golf courses agree and have opted for carts-only. With the increased use of carts comes increased maintenance and need for parts. That’s why Emerson Bearing, a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the world, recently expanded its golf division as part of the company’s recreation industry offerings.
“We originally formed our golf division a few years ago because there had been such an increase in demand for our bearings for golf carts. Well, that has continued the past few years and we needed to reinforce the division to serve not only golf courses but other companies that utilize golf carts for their operations. So we have added personnel and expertise to better serve this market,” said Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing.
Bearings for the golf cart market must be able to withstand outdoor environments and for this, Emerson Bearing provides mounted units with triple lip seals and ball bearings with full contact sealing. They also provide spherical bushings, spherical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings, adhesives and sealants, rod ends, oil seals and mounted units. Emerson Bearing Boston carries a full range of brands for this market including SKF, FAG and KVC, as quite often, customers choose a brand based on price point.
Emerson Bearing Senior Marketing Specialist Richard Furtado leads the Golf division team. Furtado 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 can be reached at contact 866-995-8761 or email rfurtado@Emersonbearing.com.
