Partnerships expand global reach of self-lubricating bearing materials

Our distribution agreements with GA Lindberg Sealtech and Supply Services represent an important milestone in our international expansion

TriStar Plastics, a leader in engineered plastics solutions, today announced it has partnered with two international distributors to bring its line of self-lubricating bearings to Scandinavia, as well as Australia, New Zealand and The Pacific Islands.

GA Lindberg Sealtech, AB, headquartered in Kista, Sweden, now has exclusive sales rights for TriStar’s line of CJ and FCJ, TriSteel™, and Ultracomp® bearings in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. While Mt. Maunganui, New Zealand-based Supply Services, Ltd. will be the exclusive distributor for CJ, FCJ, TriSteel, and Rulon® bearings, plus Rulon® stock shapes in New Zealand, Australia, and The Pacific Islands.

“Our distribution agreements with GA Lindberg Sealtech and Supply Services represent an important milestone in our international expansion,” said Richard Cedrone, CEO of TriStar Plastics. “Interestingly, these agreements also represent regions with polar opposite weather conditions — from the cold extremes of Northern Europe to the tropical humidity of the South Pacific — yet they are both environments in which our temperature-resilient bearings excel,” he said.

TriStar’s line of bearing materials are ideal for non-lubricated, high-load applications in a range of industries, including agriculture, marine, railroad, construction and military. They regularly outperform metal bearings, and require no greasing for reduced maintenance costs and improved uptime.

“We are excited to join forces with GA Lindberg Sealtech and Supply Services to provide their customers with the ideal bearing solution for their most-pressing applications,” Cedrone added.
