With craft brewers cropping up across the nation, Emerson Bearing Boston, a bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets around the world, has found a new niche.
As a supplier of bearings and related products to the packaging and food processing industries, Emerson Bearing Boston has established a Craft Brewer Division dedicated to their rapidly expanding small and independent brewer customer base. Mike Quinn, Marketing Specialist, oversees the division.
According to the Brewers Association, craft brewers accounted for 11 percent volume share of the marketplace in 2014, up from 5 percent in 2010. And steady growth is expected to continue.
Emerson Bearing Boston provides bearings utilized in the brewing process, which includes mixing, bottling, canning, seaming, labeling and also in any part of the process that involves conveyance. Emerson Bearing Boston is one of the only suppliers of hybrid stainless steel or ceramic bearing seaming rolls, which are made of advanced materials to last longer and run cooler. They also provide stainless steel single roller ball bearings and ceramic ball bearings, which are used in canning and handling lines. Other products include tabletop chain, rollers, idlers, stainless steel mounted units, cam followers, rod ends, thrust bearings, control bearings, needle roller bearings, adhesives and sealants.
“Packaging and food processing are usually fully automated and often take place under extreme operating conditions. It requires low maintenance, special hygiene requirements and operational reliability,” said Steve Katz, president. “By supplying dependable parts and service, we’ve been able help craft brewers such as Newburyport Brewing Company of Mass., West Sixth Brewery of Kentucky and Moab Brewery of Utah keep their production lines moving.”
