August 18, 2006 the Auburn Ball Bearing product line was purchased from M D Knowlton Company by Fairport Products and moved to 4 Rt 350, Macedon, NY 14502. On June 10, 2013 Fairport Products and Auburn Ball Bearing became one company and are now known as Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing. We are proud to continue the tradition of manufacturing Thrust Bearings started in 1898.
From one of our many
We are very pleased to have found Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing to make bearings for a 1916 Fiat aircraft engine, used in a speedboat that we were restoring.
The bearings we needed were obsolete and Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing made the replacement bearings from old, used, worn, bad samples.
One bearing was very unique in that it was a combination Ball Thrust and Ball Radial Bearing with two rows of balls!
Fortunately for us, Auburn Bearing made our restoration easy and successful!
